May we assume these are immigrants who are here LEGALLY in the United States?

Don't ensure and advise about safety if they are undocumented?

Yeah. Talk to da man about that.

If they are undocumented, they should be sent back to the respective countries from which they came, as THEIR governments are the ones responsible for them.

"If they are undocumented, they should be sent back to the respective countries"

Perhaps.

All SVCF is doing is offering support to organizations that help keep some poor folk in our community safe.

I agree with the poster above... it's rather a WWJD thing - "will help organizations offer vital services, support and information to immigrants who are vulnerable or discriminated against"

Bravo. It's the Christian thing to do. I'd be fascinated to hear arguments against such morals.

It has nothing to do with Christianity or morals; it's THE LAW!!!
