Interesting: I would think it is a federal offense. Harboring criminals, aiding and abetting. Entering the country without proper documentation is a Felony. When do religious rights get to directly interfere with federal law? The legal thing to do is contact immigration and have immigration bring them food, water, and then ship their butts home. How many other crimes are the Christians going to...... Oh, never mind, that question leads us to "HIDE THE PEDOPHILE." I will just end here.
Be interesting to see how long before another group decide it's THEIR religions right to go around emptying all the water containers.
My favourite interpretation of the US First Amendment is due to Madalyn Murray O'Hair. She argued that 'freedom Of Religion" also means "Freedom FROM religion". As a result of her case, mandatory prayer was banned in Public schools in the US by Order of The Supreme court. .
O' Hair, a personally unpleasant person, was called "the most hated woman in America". She was murdered , but the murder was not related to her atheist convictions as far as I'm aware.
Madalyn Murray O'Hair (born Mays; April 13, 1919 – September 29, 1995) was an American activist supporting atheism and separation of church and state. In 1963 she founded American Atheists and served as its president until 1986, after which her son Jon Garth Murray succeeded her. She created the first issues of American Atheist Magazine.
O'Hair is best known for the Murray v. Curlett lawsuit, which challenged the policy of mandatory prayers and Bible reading in Baltimore public schools, in which she named her first son William J. Murray as plaintiff. Consolidated with Abington School District v. Schempp (1963), it was heard by the United States Supreme Court, which ruled that officially sanctioned mandatory Bible-reading in American public schools was unconstitutional. The Supreme Court had prohibited officially sponsored prayer in schools in Engel v. Vitale (1962) on similar grounds. Through American Atheists, O'Hair filed numerous other suits on issues of separation of church and state.
