WATCH: Seattle Church Vows to Provide Sanctuary for Illegal Immigrant from Mexico Facing Deportation

For a second time in two years, a Seattle church is vowing to provide sanctuary for a person avoiding deportation after entering the U.S. illegally.

Jaime Rubio Sulficio, 37, has been staying at St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral on Capitol Hill since last Friday.

He was ordered to leave the U.S. by March 28.

“He’s here on our campus and will be here until a legal remedy can be found,” said Dean Steven Thomason.

Sulficio has been in the U.S. for more than a decade. He now owns a construction company and is a husband and father of a 6-year-old boy. Both his wife and son are American citizens.

ICE initially ordered him to be deported 7 years ago. According to officials, that’s after Sulficio had left the US briefly to visit his ailing mother. He was then flagged by immigration agents upon re-entry.

Since then, ICE had been granting Sulficio a temporary stay every year until his latest application was rejected.
