Indianapolis Church Puts the Holy Family in Cage to Mimick ICE Detention Center

The Christ Church Cathedral in Indianapolis, IN placed statues of Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus in a cage with barbed wire to protest the Trump administration’s zero tolerance immigration policy on Monday evening.

“On our lawn tonight we placed The Holy Family…in #ICE detention. #Immigration,” the church tweeted.

Rev. Stephen Carlsen told the Indianapolis Star that the decision to cage the Holy Family is a protest of “Trump’s zero-tolerance policy that is holding families in detention centers at the U.S.-Mexico border.”

“I know what the Bible said,” Carlsen told the Star. “We’re supposed to love our neighbors as ourselves.”
