CHICAGO - Elvira Arellano, the illegal Mexican activist who took sanctuary at a Chicago church for a year to protest her deportation, has returned to Illinois and is again living at Adalberto United Methodist Church.
However, this time, she's not confined to the church. Arellano was released from U.S. custody Thursday as she seeks permission to enter the country without legal documents.
The Rev. Walter Coleman said Sunday that Arellano is taking stock before an April hearing when she'll make her case before an immigration judge.
She's demanind that President Barack Obama extend his executive order deferments he gave to DREAM Act children and parents.
