Herminia Gallego, an undocumented mother from Arizona is now seeking sanctuary inside the Tucson’s Saint Augustine Cathedral Parish. Herminia made this decision because of recent retaliation from ICE in response to her advocating against the wrongful detention of her 20 year old daughter, Rosy Rojas.
Just three days ago, during visitation at the Eloy Detention Center, Herminia was told she would be banned from visiting her daughter for 2 months. She was told this ban was a result of her recently launching a 14-day hunger strike to bring help get attention to Rosy. “I don’t know why they are doing this to me, I just want my Rosy home.”
Rosy’s only hope is to have the support of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. As it happens there are 8 U.S. Bishops currently right here in Arizona, they have come here as part of the Conference’s Committee on Migrants.
