Local churches balance legality and faith in helping asylum seekers

Some local pastors are willing to help refugees from Central America at the U.S.-Mexico border. They say, however, there's a thin line between providing aid and comfort and obeying the law.  Sturgeon Bay Community Church Pastor Shannon Souther says faith communities can provide needed help to obtain legal entry for refugees.



Door Bible Baptist Church Pastor Mark Engelbert shares those feelings and says believers are obligated to help others as followers of Christ and descendants of immigrants.



Some church leaders in the Milwaukee area spoke out in favor of those at the U.S.-Mexico border during a gathering for "International Migrants Day".
