We won Angela Navarro’s Sanctuary case in January 2015, beating her final deportation order after a 58 day civil disobedience in member congregation West Kensington Ministry. In February 2015, we went on the road to support other immigrants still fighting their final deportation orders in Sanctuary. Angela, her husband Manrique, and NSM organizer Nicole went to Denver to visit Arturo, Tucson to visit Rosa, and Phoenix to visit Misael. During the tour, we built relationships with those in Sanctuary and their organizing teams, learned about each others’ organizing strategy, held press conferences, and held worship services to pray for a positive outcome in the immigration cases.
Happily, all of these people are now home with their families!
