Churches around the country are gearing up to shelter immigrants imperiled by raids and in what BuzzFeed calls a "modern-day underground railroad" also work to spirit people to Canada.

The ongoing Boy Scouts of America's bankruptcy case could now leave thousands of religious groups open to lawsuits, the AP reports.

Why it matters: The Boy Scouts struck an $850 million settlement in July, which would ultimately bar further sexual abuse lawsuits against it and its local councils. However, the settlement did not extend protections to the more than 40,000 organizations that had ties to the Boy Scouts.

  • The plan aimed to remove 650 lead lines from low-income homes in the first year using $15 million in federal block grants.
