Chaldean Christians who fled Iraq protested Wednesday in front of the Federal Building in Detroit, Michigan, calling for an end to U.S. deportations. They say there is no safe place in Iraq for them to go back to. The government claims it’s only deporting Chaldeans convicted of serious crimes in the U.S., but Iraqi Americans dispute that. They are descendants of the 1st Century church established by St. Thomas the Apostle, and the Current Occupant has said his immigration policy prefers Christian refugees.
