An undocumented immigrant father who entered sanctuary in a Tucson church to avoid deportation for the second time will get to go home again.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials granted Daniel Neyoy Ruiz, 37, another one-year stay of deportation after his first stay expired on June 10th.
Neyoy Ruiz quietly took sanctuary in Tucson’s First Christian Church earlier this month. The church planned a public announcement for Daniel’s re-entering into sanctuary on Thursday.
But ICE officials threw him a lifeline hours before the event was to take place, informing him that his stay would be renewed.
