Immigration activist claims sanctuary

In the Chicago Sun Times there is an article by Ester J. Cepeda Staff, reporter August 15, 2006 which shows how desperate parents are to remain with Saul, her 7 year old U.S. born son;

“Immigration activist Elvira Arellano has turned to Adalberto United Methodist Church, on the 2100 block of W. Division St., for sanctuary as she waits for bills to be introduced into Congress that would allow her to extend her stay in the United States….

“I will stay however long is necessary,” said Arellano. “I’m strong and I’ve learned from Rosa Parks- I’m not going to go to the back of the bus. The law is wrong.” She’s asked her supporters to call the offices of Senators Barack Obama and Dick Durbin to demand they intervene on her behalf”.
