RESOURCES FOR IMMIGRANTS AND ADVOCATES

The Mission of Christ Church is to Widen the Circle of God’s Embrace with Heart and Voice. In the Baptismal Covenant of The Episcopal Church we promise to seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving our neighbors as ourselves, and to strive for justice and peace among all people, respecting the dignity of every human being.

Given the threats of raids against our immigrant families, and the humanitarian crisis that has been created on the border, where families have been separated, and where there are children dying and suffering inhumane conditions, the Episcopal Church, the Diocese of Indianapolis and Christ Church Cathedral, continue: raising their voices for people who can not raise their voices in this crisis, supporting local and national efforts, and promoting the distribution of human and financial resources to support affected and at-risk families of our community.

Specifically, Christ Church Cathedral has resources available to support our families in our community, and the people who want to be advocates for our families at risk. We are also collaborating with other local organizations to provide these resources.

  1. KNOW THE DIFFERENCE between an administrative detention order and a warrant for judicial arrest.

Remember, ICE only has the right to enter your home if you have an order signed by a judge (Order to detain you or enter your home). The administrative order is only signed by an immigration officer, and does not give them the right to enter your home.

These are samples of warrants. The warrant on the left is a judicial warrant, and the one on the right is an administrative non-biding warrant.
