Angered by the negative statements against immigrants during the presidential campaign, the Rev. Matthew Bucher of Harrisonburg, Virginia, decided to put a welcome sign in front of his church to comfort newcomers to the country.

The sign read, "No matter where you're from, we're glad you're our neighbor."
