Tell Customs and Border PatrolSave historic church and cemetery from Trump’s wall

Posted: Feb. 8, 2019

President Trump’s border wall now threatens the first Spanish-speaking Protestant church in America: Jackson Chapel United Methodist Church in San Juan, Texas.

The origins of the historic church and cemetery go back to the 1850s: The property was a stop on the Underground Railroad and the chapel was built by an interracial family whose descendants continue to live nearby.

Construction is scheduled to begin next month on 33 miles of wall in the Rio Grande Valley. Customs and Border Patrol has so far ignored neighbors’ attempts to ensure that the wall and accompanying 150-foot enforcement zone don’t cut right through the middle of the church and cemetery grounds - forever separating their family’s gravesites from the rest of the United States.
