CHICAGO -- Several priests in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhoods are making plans for children in case their parents are detained or deported under a Trump administration crackdown.

They are signing up families to take care of children, who may end up separated from their moms and dads.

They put out a call on Facebook, and there’s been a big response.

During tonight's Ash Wednesday service, parishioners were also able to sign up.

Priests have also decided to protest any deportation actions.
