Undocumented Immigrant in Sanctuary Responds to Raids from Colorado Church

As immigrant communities face ongoing raids across the country, we speak with Rosa Sabido, one of dozens of undocumented immigrants living in churches across the United States. She entered sanctuary in May 2017 in the fellowship hall at United Methodist Church in Mancos, Colorado, after being told that her latest request of stay of deportation had been denied by ICE. She first came to the U.S. on a visitor visa in 1987 to see her mother and stepfather, who are both naturalized U.S. citizens. “We are in fear. We are on guard,” says Sabido. “We are on constant panic, and we don’t know what’s going to happen in our communities.”
