The Catholic Archdiocese of Cincinnati intervened on behalf of one of its members Thursday by asking politicians and law enforcement to halt the impending deportation of Maribel Trujillo Diaz.
Trujillo is scheduled to be deported next Tuesday, according to The Guardian.
Trujillo is a mother of four who came to the U.S. in 2002 because her family had been targeted by Mexican cartels. She previously feared deportation, but was granted “prosecutorial discretion,” according to the church’s statement. As part of an agreement, the Archdiocese explained, Trujillo was required to go to regular check-ins with ICE and was told she could remain in the U.S. as her case for asylum is still pending.
