For almost two years, Rosa Sabido has been living in sanctuary in the United Methodist Church in Mancos, Colorado. Born in Mexico, Rosa has lived in the U.S. for more than 30 years. Due to technicalities in immigration law and unfortunate legal errors, she missed opportunities to obtain permanent residency and now faces deportation. From inside the church, aided by parishioners and other supporters, Sabido tells her story, and works to shine light on the cruelty of the system. With its spiritual overtones, sanctuary is a potent symbol of resistance, but imposes its own high cost on the person who takes it.
