After taking sanctuary in a church, man's deportation delayed by ICE

After taking sanctuary in a church, man's deportation delayed by ICE

In a statement, the ICE said Mr Berrones had been granted "a one-year stay of removal on humanitarian grounds". After the one-year stay, Berrones will have to file for a renewal.

All of Berrones's five children are USA citizens.

The one-year stay granted Monday will allow Berrones to receive a work permit and remain in the USA while he tries to have his deportation case reopened so he can apply to remain in the country legally through his US citizen wife, Wilkes said. When he was 19, he was deported after being caught driving with a fake license.

Berrones, a 30-year-old father of five, was instructed to report on Monday in Phoenix, Arizona to begin the process of his third deportation back to his native Mexico.

Instead, he has been given sanctuary at the Shadow Rock United Church of Christ in Phoenix, where he and his wife, Sonia, are now staying with their five children.

Berrones, 30, has a son fighting leukemia. "The only response we were getting was no comment", he told CNN.

Berrones has been told to surrender to immigration officers on Monday. Berrones is the family's sole breadwinner. But in January, Berrones got a notice from ICE that he would be deported.

"I couldn't believe it, is this really happening".

The dossier was also used to obtain a FISA warrant on Carter Page, a former foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign. Rice sent the email on January 20, 2017 - the day President Donald Trump took the oath of office.

"Everywhere I go, he wants to go, whatever I do he wants to help me with, I don't want anything bad to happen to him", said Berrones.

Lemon asked Wilkes why Berrones was not elgible for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which provided undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children protection from deportation.

"I have to fight for my family", said the father of five. He was sentenced to 90 days in federal prison on a criminal misdemeanor charge, ICE officials said.

Mr Berrones, who works in furniture reupholstery and air-conditioning installation, has five children and a pregnant wife in the US.

ICE's Phoenix office issued a statement on Monday saying the decision was based on "humanitarian" considerations, and that Berrones had been granted a stay before. Stays may be granted up to two years in duration.

Berrones' lawyer Garrett Wilkes told The Huffington Post last week that his client was informed in 2017 by ICE officials when he went to refile a request to stay in the country that he would no longer be a deportation priority.

"His kids need him", she said.

During his next check-in on December 29, ICE officials informed Berrones that he would be deported in 30 days, which came as a shock, Wilkes said.
