    GREENSBORO
    Minerva Garcia, one of three people under deportation order who have been living in sanctuary in North Carolina, on Monday will leave the church where she has been for three months after the order was canceled.

    [Woman, 2 children seek sanctuary from deportation at Greensboro church.]


    Garcia, who is from Mexico, moved into United Congregational Church of Christ with her two sons, ages 6 and 3, to bide time for a delay or cancellation of her deportation order from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

    Garcia came from Mexico to the United States 17 years ago with her oldest son, Eduardo, now 21, and her second oldest son, who died of cancer in 2007. She left Mexico to find better educational opportunities for Eduardo, who is blind.

    In 2013, Garcia obtained a stay of removal from ICE because her oldest son depends on her. Every year since, she’s received a stay of removal, until this year. During Garcia’s annual check-in with ICE in May, she received an order to leave the country by June 30.

    Providing sanctuary called 'a moral obligation'

    Rev. Randall Keeney, vicar at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Greensboro NC, says providing sanctuary for Juana Luz Tobar Ortega is a moral obligation. Ortega has been living at St. Barnabas for two weeks since getting a deportation order from the U.S. I

    Garcia’s lawyer contacted her on Monday morning to tell her the deportation order had been canceled, reported Qué Pasa, a Raleigh Spanish-language newspaper.

    “I’m so happy,” Garcia told Qué Pasa. “I’m free now and can go back to my home that has been waiting for me.” She will return to her Winston-Salem residence with her three children.

    Garcia’s release from sanctuary will be livestreamed at 4 p.m. Monday on the Facebook page for the North Carolina chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

    Two other immigrants in North Carolina continue to live in houses of worship to avoid deportation.

    I thought this sort of stuff was supposed to end under the Trump administration!

    I'm assuming it was DHS, or more specifically ICE, that cancelled this order. My question is why?

    "Garcia, who is from Mexico, moved into United Congregational Church of Christ with her two sons, ages 6 and 3, to bide time for a delay or cancellation of her deportation order from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement."

    ---------------------------

    Deport her and her 2 anchor rats...who US taxpayers have foot the bill for.

    The oldest is blind...take him with you too! He is just as illegal as the mother! And who has been paying the bill for the oldest illegal son?

    So now we let people BREAK our laws and come here if they are blind, lost a leg, have medical issues or are disable? We have our own disable to take care of!

    This is outrages! Go let your government pay for your keep.

    Boy, how the excuses for breaking our immigration laws have changed over the years. Now the typical excuse is avoid gang violence.
