And back in the United States, in Philadelphia, Mexican immigrant Javier Flores is slated to leave the Arch Street United Methodist Church where he has taken refuge to avoid deportation for nearly a year. Javier Flores has been living in Philadelphia for 20 years and is the father of three U.S.-born children. He took sanctuary only days after President Trump was elected. Javier Flores has won an immigration hearing, which will shield him from the threat of deportation for now. He’s slated to walk out of the church today.
