A recent guest speaker at Andrews University, a Christian institution in Berrien Springs, Michigan, told students that their churches should hide illegal immigrants to protect them from deportation.
According to a report by Campus Reform, Andrews University guest speaker James Standish encouraged American churches to hide illegal immigrants.
Standish, the communications director for the South Pacific Division of Seventh-day Adventists, even went as far as to compare ICE deportations to conditions under Nazi Germany.
“In the law, there is a doctrine called equitable estoppel. Equitable estoppel means that you can’t watch somebody invest and build something and wait until they built it, knowing they exist and they come in and take it away from them,” Standish said referring to the deportation of illegal immigrants.
Standish told students that American churches should open their doors to illegal immigrants because ICE policy allegedly restricts their ability to raid religious buildings.
