From church sanctuary, Colorado woman defies ICE
For nearly two months since taking sanctuary at the United Methodist Church in Mancos, a small town in the mountains of southwest Colorado, Rosa Sabido, 53, has lived in a cramped room with a makeshift shower. She sleeps beneath a mural of Noah’s Ark in what used to be the church nursery.

A leaflet is seen during a strategy meeting. Sabido has been battling to stay in the United States for most of the last 30 years after crossing the border illegally from Mexico. In 2002, a judge ordered her to leave the country under a “voluntary deportation” order, a decision she appealed through a succession of courts and lost at every point.
