The United Church of Christ in Simi Valley continues to harbor, aid and abet an illegal alien that they have allowed to live at their church. The "red headed step-child" of Elvira Arellano, "Lilliana" continues to stay there and the church continues to play political activist and lawbreaker.
Members of Save Our State, No More Invasion and California Coalition for Immigration Reform continue to protest the church and demand that it be held accountable for its actions and that the government do its job of arresting, charging, sentencing and deporting the illegal alien fugitive from justice hiding within. "Lilliana" has been hiding in churches for over a year.
Churches that openly flaunt the law and take sides in the political theater need to have their tax exempt status revoked immediately! I stand firm in this belief and I believe that I am not alone. Throughout this country people are fed up at churches like the United Church of Christ and their "progressive and inclusive" nature. progressive in that the "new cool" is the "sanctuary movement" and ignoring the law and the inclusive is that they'll even allow known criminals and fugitives from justice to be among their fellowship even with outstanding arrest warrants.
My hat is off to the patriots who showed up even in the rain. For anyone who doubts the passion these people have for their beliefs of truth and justice in their country, your doubts have been dispelled.
They are wearing me down. I feel like I've been raped over and over by dozens and dozens; I am becoming numb and discouraged. Do I (illegally) start shooting the rapists or just submit to the abuse? And the authorities at all levels are standing there watching, cheering the rapists on.

AS a veteran Simi street protestor and member of the SF Valley posse, we need to re-energize our tactics against this renegade church and their felon living in her spring vacation home located in one of the safest cities in the US of A. If you think of it, Lilianna is a trapped RAT. She can't go or do anything normal. I think the image of a trapped RAT should be used in all future street protests. ralley signs featuring a dead snap-trapped RAT with her smiling face on the neck broke killed RAT, waving around halloween rubber RATS, Decon RAT pest control and other such RAT icons images should be used by all future street rallies at this outlaw church rallies. RATS tell Lilliana's story and are worth 1000 words.
The church should be made to answer this question: Why is this USA church above the USA law? Tax exempt churches or religous groups should not be RATS and preaching about clearly political immigration aliens matters.
