Salvadoran Mother of Three Takes Sanctuary in Maryland Church

HeadlineJan 04, 2019

And in Maryland, a Salvadoran mother of three U.S. citizens has taken sanctuary in a Unitarian Universalist church as she fights possible deportation. Rosa Gutierrez Lopez took refuge in the church in the D.C. suburb of Bethesda on December 10, the same day that Immigration and Customs Enforcement ordered her to leave the U.S.

Rosa Gutierrez Lopez: “Under the Obama administration, I only went to report in every year, and gave my name, my address and everything, and then I would go back the next year. On the contrary, under Donald Trump’s administration, I received an ankle bracelet, which was very frustrating for me. It hurts my soul, because I’m not a criminal.”
