A grandmother who has lived in the United States for nearly 25 years sought sanctuary in a church in North Carolina last week — the latest case of an undocumented immigrant turning to houses of worship.

Juana Tobar Ortega, a mother of four and grandmother of two, moved into a small room in St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Greensboro last week after she was told to leave the country by May 31.

Ortega, who is from Guatemala, said she felt "desperate" when she was given an ankle monitor and told to leave the country after a check-in with Immigration and Customs Enforcement in April, her first under President Donald Trump's administration.
