Marco Reyes spent 106 days in the sanctuary of First and Summerfield United Methodist Church in New Haven to avoid a deportation order that would separate him from his wife and three children. After he had complied with Immigration & Customs Enforcement for years, the Trump administration ordered him to leave the country in August. Instead of leaving, he took refuge in a church, and he was supported by hundreds of volunteers as well as religious congregations and local elected officials.
On November 22, one day before Thanksgiving, Marco received a stay of removal and went home to his family in Meriden.
Even though ICE has given Marco temporary permission to stay in the United States, they are still paying a private company to surveil Marco with a GPS ankle bracelet.
