U.S. Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly says his department will not detain undocumented immigrants at "sensitive locations" such as churches. His comments last week came as congregations across the United States have mounted a grassroots movement to oppose the Trump administration's immigration policies and to offer sanctuary to illegal immigrants threatened with immediate deportation. VOA's Bill Rodgers visited one church at the heart of Washington's immigrant community.
