For the past three weeks Rosa Robles Loreto has not left the grounds of a church in Tucson, Arizona. The congregation took her under their protection after Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) ordered her deported on Aug. 8.

Robles says she will stay in the church until ICE agrees to let her stay in the country. She has lived in Tucson, Arizona, with her and husband and two sons for the past 10 years.
