Man living inside a church to avoid deportation

He's been living in the U.S. for 26 years — but inside his church for the last 400 days. Why? Because if he steps outside he risks being deported. 🙏🏽

    Send in ICE to remove him. If he came in the legal way, then this would not have happened.

    I am confused. If he's been in the U.S. 26 yrs, why is he not legal yet?

    Living in a church may not be best, but its probably better than the place they want to deport him to.

    Community support is a critical element to keeping the Pinos family fighting for their father - check out Nelson's GoFundMe page here! https://www.gofundme.com/SupportNelsonPinosAndFamily

    This is not right. 26 years he has worked and paid taxes. His children are here, raised by him, educated by the US. He speaks English well, he is productive. He should be allowed to stay and be put on a rapid route to citizenship.
