    Religious leader heads effort to help man facing deportation

    Religious leader heads effort to help man facing deportation

    The leader of the state's largest Roman Catholic archdiocese bowed his head and prayed with a man who entered the U.S. illegally decades ago before the man walked into a federal building to face possible deportation, a high-profile example of how religious leaders are responding to recent immigration enforcement actions under Republican President Donald Trump.

    Hi,

    What does "heads effort to" in the above refer to? Thanks.

    To head an effort is to lead in that effort.
