North Carolina: ICE Arrests Immigrant Who Left Church Sanctuary

HeadlineNov 26, 2018

In North Carolina, ICE agents arrested a Mexican immigrant Friday after he emerged from a Durham church where he’d been living in sanctuary for nearly a year. Forty-seven-year-old Samuel Oliver-Bruno had gone to the ICE office in Raleigh to have his fingerprints taken so he could apply to remain with his wife and son in the U.S. After Oliver-Bruno was taken into custody and placed in an ICE van, his supporters surrounded the vehicle, singing and praying for two hours before police moved in to remove them. Among those arrested was Oliver-Bruno’s son, Daniel Oliver-Perez, who was charged with assault on a government officer.
