PHOENIX (KSAZ) - A Valley father who is facing deportation is seeking refuge in a church.
The father, Jesus Berrones, has already been deported twice. This time, however, he is hoping to stay because his five-year-old son is battling Leukemia.
On Monday afternoon, FOX 10 Phoenix has learned that Berrones, who was supposed to turn himself in to ICE officials at 9:00 a.m., has been granted a stay by that agency.
According to the Associated Press, Berrones, 30, was brought to the U.S. as a toddler, and reports say he is now granted permission to stay in the U.S., for another year.
