ICC Note: The deportation of illegal immigrants continues to increase under the new administration. Unfortunately, some of these immigrants are Christians who fled their countries to escape persecution. Christian persecution is a human rights issue that continues to be ignored and does not have the attention that it should have from the media and international organizations.
10/20/2017 Indonesia (Reuters) – The case of 47 Indonesian Christians, who fled violence in that country two decades ago and now live illegally in New Hampshire, heads to Boston federal court on Friday, where a judge will weigh whether she can intervene in an immigration matter.
The group had been allowed to remain in the state under the terms of a 2012 deal with Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials that required them to turn in their passports and present themselves for regular check-ins with federal officials.
