HeadlineNov 18, 2014

In Philadelphia, an undocumented mother of two U.S. citizens has taken sanctuary from her deportation order inside a church. Angela Navarro, whose children are eight and 11, is among millions of people who could potentially benefit if Obama issues an executive order to end his record deportations. According to the faith-based group New Sanctuary Movement, Navarro is the ninth immigrant nationwide to take sanctuary in a church after receiving a final deportation order, and the first on the East Coast.
