eanette Vizguerra, an undocumented mother of four and long-time community leader and member of We Belong Together, left her church refuge for the first time in 86 days after being granted a Stay of Removal that allows her to remain in the country until March 15, 2019.

This is a special day for me, because I will be able to celebrate Mothers Day with my children and my grandchildren. Even though Ive been continuing the fight from the inside, I have missed my kids -- this fight is for them. And at the same time, its for all of the mothers and fathers who are in the struggle, said Jeanette Vizguerra at a press conference in Denver today.

For eight years, Jeanette has been fighting to remain in this country with her three U.S. citizen children, her DACA-recipient daughter, and her grandson. She declared sanctuary this February, the day she was scheduled to meet with Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE) after her Stay of Removal expired, facing the uncertainty of deportation.

While Jeanette will be able to spend Mothers Day in her own home with her children, her longtime friend Ingrid Encalada Latorre, an undocumented mother from Peru with two U.S. citizen children, still remains in sanctuary at another church in Denver without relief from her own deportation order. Jeanette Vizguerra said, At the same time Ive felt happy for myself, I am sad for my friend who is at another church. While Im celebrating, she also wants to leave from there. Before coming to this event, I visited her and said that I would use my case to fight for her. Even though my struggle has not ended, my energy over the next two years will go towards fighting for her.

We Belong Together celebrates Jeanettes homecoming by standing with Ingrid and immigrant women across the country who are standing up to ICE. On the heels of Governor Abbott signing SB4 in Texas -- a racist attack on immigrant families and communities -- this victory gives hope to all of us who believe that we belong together, said Sameera Hafiz, Advocacy Director with the National Domestic Workers Alliance and We Belong Together. We must continue fighting for one another and the future of our nation."
