Since President Trump took office, the number of American churches willing to shelter undocumented immigrants from the threat of deportation has grown to about 1,000 — a small fraction of the Christian community. Special correspondent Duarte Geraldino meets one immigrant who has been welcomed by a congregation in hopes of buying time to find a legal way of staying in the U.S.

(14 Jul 2017) An Iraqi man who fled to the US during the Gulf War and trained tens of thousands of American soldiers is facing deportation orders that could lead to his death in his homeland, his supporters say.
Kadhim Al-bumohammed, 64, decided to seek refuge Thursday inside a New Mexico church.
He announced through his attorney that he would defy a federal immigration order to appear for a hearing where he was expected to be detained over two misdemeanor domestic-violence convictions in California.
“After consulting with his family, and with other members of the faith community, (Al-bumohammed) has chosen to seek sanctuary with the faith community”, Rebecca Kitson, his lawyer, said a cheering crowd outside Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) offices in Albuquerque.
Immigration officials typically don’t make deportation arrests in churches and other “sensitive areas” such as schools and churches.
An ICE spokeswoman did not immediately return an email from The Associated Press seeking comment.
Al-bumohammed, who arrived as a refugee in the early 1990s, worked as a linguist contractor with all four branches of the US military from 2004 to 2009 in Fort Irwin, California.
Al-bumohammed trained tens of thousands of soldiers in his five years and earned more than 15 medals for his service, Kitson said.
He fled following the first US war with Iraq with Saddam Hussein still in power because he feared persecution for assisting US-led coalition forces.
Supporters say the father of four US children will face death if he’s deported because of his connection to the US military.
His case has drawn support from religious leaders, immigrant advocates and US military veterans who have attended rallies and events on his behalf.
His daughter, Courtney Al-bumohammed, 17, said that for now she was happy that her father wouldn’t be detained and leave her family.
Al-bumohammed is one of the 1,400 Iraqis under deportation orders in the US.
Some, like Al-bumohammed, have faced the orders for years because they committed crimes.
His convictions involved his ex-wife and he later won full custody of his children.
A federal judge this week halted the deportation of Iraqi nationals like Al-bumohammed, including many Christians fearing persecution, while courts review the orders to remove them from the US.

Tropical downpours to threaten flooding in Texas, Louisiana
Tropical downpours may lead to flooding and travel problems in parts of Texas and Louisiana this weekend to early next week.
A tropical disturbance associated with a plume of showers and thunderstorms that began to brew over the western Caribbean last weekend is forecast to migrate northwestward this weekend into early next week.
“The disturbance is highly unlikely to develop,” according to AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski.
“However, this disturbance will cause flooding rainfall to progress slowly inland from the western part of the Gulf coast starting later this weekend,” Kottlowski said.
Risk of heavy rainfall, flooding to expand later Sunday through Tuesday
Enough rain is likely to fall to cause incidents of urban and low-lying area flooding, especially in the swath from Houston, southward to Brownsville, and inland to Austin and San Antonio, Texas.
Motorists in the major metropolitan areas such as Houston, Dallas, Port Arthur, Victoria, Corpus Christi, Brownsville, San Antonio and Austin, Texas, as well as Lake Charles, Louisiana, should anticipate travel difficulties by the start of next week.
The Monday commutes could be a mess along parts of the Texas and western Louisiana coasts. More widespread problems may occur from coastal and central Texas to western Louisiana by Tuesday.
Motorists are reminded never to drive through flooded roadways as the water may be deeper than it appears and the road surface compromised beneath the water.
Slow-moving tropical downpours have the potential to unload localized rainfall on the order of 6 inches or more where showers and thunderstorms repeat. Should even a tropical depression or weak tropical storm form, rainfall could be even heavier in some communities.

While much of the rain may fall on Father’s Day weekend when many people may have outdoor plans, rainfall is needed over much of the region.
Abnormally dry to moderate drought conditions exist over much of Louisiana and central and southeastern Texas, according to the latest United States Drought Monitor. Severe drought exists in some counties of Texas as well.
Movement of the batch of tropical downpours is uncertain beyond this weekend.
On one hand, the rain may be drawn northward across the Plains and part of the Mississippi Valley.
However, another scenario is possible.
“There is a chance the system stalls over southern Texas and northeastern Mexico for several days next week,” according to AccuWeather Lead Storm Warning Meteorologist Eddie Walker.
Another Harvey is not expected
Even though the area of disturbed weather is originating from the western Caribbean Sea and may organize just off the South Texas coast, a repeat of Harvey is not anticipated with this event, despite the chance of rain farther south and west.
