Democrat Party activists have decided to expand a moribund campaign of terrorism aimed at obstructing Federal officers engaged in their duties to arrest illegal aliens. In the no surprises department, Peter Pedemonti, an official at the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, a major Federal contractor with the Department of State for Muslim terrorist refugee resettlement, is orchestrating a criminal conspiracy to interfere with the deportation of Al Queda and ISIS terrorists, as well as other illegal aliens in violation of several Federal statutes: 18 U.S. Code § 111, Assaulting, resisting, or impeding certain officers or employees, 18 U.S. Code § 115, Influencing, impeding, or retaliating against a Federal official, and 18 U.S.C. § 372 Conspiracy to Impede or Injure a Federal Officer, as well as various terrorism statutes including 18 U.S. Code § 2339A, Providing material support to terrorists, which includes a provision prohibiting aid to escape arrest.
Terrorist Enabler And Criminal Peter Pedemonti
Then President Trump was elected, with his promises to crack down on illegal immigration and on sanctuary cities like Philadelphia, which does not cooperate with federal officials’ detainer requests for undocumented immigrants charged with nonviolent crimes. New Sanctuary Movement sent an email to its mailing list, asking again for volunteers for Sanctuary on the Streets. This time, 1,000 people responded...
A few dozen people marched across the warehouse floor, holding cardboard signs and singing in Spanish. “Stop the raids,” the signs read.
Peter Pedemonti clapped his hands. “OK, let’s take a breath,” he said. The signs lowered, the line broke apart, and the 50 or so people who had gathered in the warehouse Saturday afternoon turned expectantly toward him.
They were here to learn how to disrupt a deportation. It was something that Pedemonti’s interfaith immigrant rights group, the New Sanctuary Movement, had been planning for months, ever since President Barack Obama’s administration announced a round of deportation raids, mainly targeting undocumented Central American adults and children.

While ostensibly "non-violent," the terrorist group Sanctuary On The Streets/New Sanctuary Movement of Philadelphia, is willing to use violence to interfere with Federal agents, and undoubtedly call in assistance from other terrorist groups like Antifa.
Pedemonti told them how to approach a house that was being raided (slowly and deliberately), how to identify themselves to ICE agents outside (politely but firmly), and how to begin a prayer service on the sidewalk (loudly but reverently). Afterward, he said, staff members from New Sanctuary would remain to comfort family members left behind.
“This is a nonviolent action – we show up with love and compassion,” he told the group. “If an ICE agent tells you to stop, you’re going to stop. If they tell you to move back, you’re going to move back.”
Others in a protest group can choose to risk arrest – sitting down on the sidewalk to block ICE agents, or surrounding the agents’ vehicles, he said. Those volunteers will receive special civil-disobedience training.
And the goal is obstruction of the official duties of Federal employees:
“But we want to put public pressure on them. To tell them, every time they show up at a house or a workplace, we’re going to be there.”
Pedemonti said he wanted ICE and the authorities to know of the New Sanctuary Movement's plan.
This is public defiance of Federal law and a confession of intent to interfere with Federal agents. The Department of Justice and the Acting U.S. Attorney, Louis Lappen, U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, should act swiftly.

Unless this rebellion against the laws of the republic are quashed, the threat will fester and grow. Time to stamp out this criminal conspiracy.
Interestingly, Sanctuary In Our Streets is well funded, and open about it's opposition to President Trump, which makes it a partisan political organization, but it consists of so-called churches, which are prohibited from participating in political activity. The Internal Revenue Service should be immediately revoking the tax-exempt status of the involved "churches:"
Arch Street United Methodist Church
Calvary United Methodist Church
Central Baptist Church of Wayne
Centro Cristiano de la Roca
Eglise Evangelique Haitienne
Faith Emmanuel Church
Germantown Mennonite Church
Holy Innocents Church
Mishkan Shalom Synagogue
The Philadelphia Praise Center
