Pastor Says Effort Will Continue For Sanctuary

City officials say a Springfield  church planning to be a sanctuary for those facing deportation is not in  compliance with state building codes.  

A letter released by Mayor  Domenic Sarno today outlines what needs to be done to meet code requirements.  

Earlier this month a group of religious leaders announced  plans to shelter people in danger of being deported at the South  Congregational Church.  

According to his office, the mayor is opposed to  using the church as a sanctuary for people living in the U.S.  illegally.

Meantime officials of the South Congregational Church say they will continue to work toward housing the immigrants at the facility.
