Three cheers and "spot on" to the well-articulated Feb. 28 letter, "Homeless shouldn't be treated like second class."

However, this leads to an opinionated question: Why aren't churches in Duluth stepping up to the plate and offering sanctuary space and respite from the degradation of being without a home? Fifteen churches across Minnesota are preparing long-term sanctuaries for illegal immigrants, according to Minnesota Public Radio. It's to be a type of "underground railroad" system for illegals facing deportation. This is an opportunity for the churches in Duluth to walk the walk and lead by setting a high bar as an example to really aid the homeless and make a difference.
