U.S. Mosques Are Secretly Giving Sanctuary to Illegal Immigrants

Source: Mosques Consider Sanctuary For Immigrants : NPR

Under President Trump, Latino immigrants in the U.S. illegally are under enormous pressure. ICE has dramatically intensified its efforts to detain and deport undocumented persons.

That was a cornerstone of Trump’s campaign platform, and after his election, officials at a mosque in Cincinnati announced they intended to become a sanctuary congregation, ready to shelter asylum seekers or migrants in need — whether Muslim or not.

But just three weeks after the election they backed off that offer of providing shelter within the mosque.

“So I think that announcing yourself as a sanctuary has its implications, whether you’re a mosque, a church, a synagogue, or anything,” Imam Omar Suleiman told NPR’s Renee Montagne.

Suleiman is the founder and president of the Yaqueen Institute for Islamic Research near Dallas, Texas. He says ICE has been particularly aggressive in Dallas, where the area leads the country in the number of deportations since the election of Donald Trump.

Last year, Suleiman was one of the people calling for mosques to join the sanctuary movement in response to increased deportation. The adversity that the Muslim and Latino communities face is similar, he said.

“I think the tools that have been employed against immigrants are the same tools that have been employed against refugees, which are the same tools that have been employed against the Muslim community as a whole, which is the dehumanization — the ‘otherizing’ — that allows people to subconsciously accept this idea that we somehow do not deserve the same level of dignity and respect and liberty that everybody else does,” Suleiman says.

But there is already a deep anti-Muslim sentiment, he adds, pointing at mosque burnings that have taken place since President Trump was elected. He says Muslims are already under a lot of scrutiny and an additional layer to that could exacerbate something that is already an issue and endanger both the Muslim and the Latino communities.

The idea here is that the goal of sanctuary is to provide safety, and if we cannot provide emotional, physical safety, then it would sort of be defeating the purpose,” Suleiman says.

“You know, there are other ways to express solidarity and support but announcing your particular mosque as a sanctuary could potentially endanger that particular Muslim community and then obviously the immigrants themselves that would seek shelter would be under that intensified scrutiny.”

If you are in a country illegally, any country, you do not deserve the same liberties as citizens of that country. 

From the NPR audio transcript we find that not only did the imam interviewed parlay the topic into a typical “Muslims are the victims” speech, but that mosques in the U.S. are secretly aiding and abetting illegal aliens:

MONTAGNE: But are there mosques that are quietly or even secretly providing physical sanctuary to undocumented workers?

SULEIMAN: At this present moment, there are mosques that are showing great solidarity, as is the Muslim community as a whole. And this has just been one of the blessings of the Trump era – is that it’s forced people out of their complacency. And I know you don’t typically hear a Muslim say blessing of the Trump era.

Solidarity. Sanctuary. Spoken like a true leftist.

It’s really no secret either. The so-called imam in this NPR article – who is also part of the effort to silence critics of Islam – is blatantly open about it on his Twitter and Facebook accounts.

We know the mosques are preaching hate. They churn out jihadis. They flout their IRS status while being heavily involved in politics. Now they are harboring illegals.

What else are they harboring?

  2. Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!… Anybody Surprised?

    They want murdering Jihadist soldiers. They will recruit to anyone, and anyone who will do their bidding..

  3. Oh my, what a shock! Muslims defying the law in order to further their own agenda!? Say it ain’t so! The Latino population in prisons have been very susceptible to influence and conversion to Islam. I don’t think it’s a stretch to think the illegal alien population would be just as susceptible.

    I’m sure the lies told by Muslims sound pretty good to someone trying to evade our laws! They should be charged with aiding and abetting those fleeing the law! Like that will ever happen!

  4. I don’t believe for a moment that these illegal immigrants are from Mexico. I also don’t believe the corruptors will even investigate these mosques. What I do believe is that there is power in numbers and we the people must peacefully demonstrate in massive numbers against these mosques, and the bureaucrats who support them.

  5. They took a page out of the Catholic’s playbook. Helping is ok sometimes, but don’t get stupid with it. These folks will get stupid with to fullfil their agenda. I saw a news blip that said that border patrol is dealing with problems with illegals that are not from Central America, muslim countries. That would fit the bill.

  7. Use the RICO laws against any church or religious group. political entity, or civic group breaking the laws of the USA.

  8. Islam is growing in the Hispanic Community. I recently retired from nursing. My last job was in a hospital in Spokane, WA (not usually considered a liberal hotbed). Before retiring, I took care of a young Hispanic male college student. His sister and her friends, all students at Eastern Washington State University, visited wearing hijabs. Mama, who visited and only spoke Spanish, was clearly Catholic as she was praying a rosary. Sister made several visits, not always wearing a hijab, but always with a hoodie and her head covered. I overheard several political discussions between sister and my patient — sister was trying to recruit bother for Islam, and saying “Mom does not understand”.

    • The last thing we need is more illegals. Even legal Hispanics are being hung out to dry, all in the name of the religion of pieces.
