In more immigration news, Colorado Governor Jared Polis has pardoned Ingrid Encalada Latorre, who has taken sanctuary in the Unitarian Universalist Church of Boulder while fighting her deportation to Peru. The governor’s pardon means her immigration case can now be reopened and her deportation order reconsidered. Encalada Latorre is one of four women in sanctuary in Colorado. The others are Araceli Velasquez, Rosa Sabido and Jeanette Vizguerra, who was named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world in 2017 for her work as an immigration activist.
