CHARLOTTE, NC -- An undocumented immigrant who lives in the Triad is breathing a sigh of relief this evening.
Minerva Garcia was ordered to meet with Immigration and Customs Enforcement today. Here's her back story. She's has lived in Winston-Salem for the last 17 years. Back in the summer, she received an order to be deported, so she found sanctuary in a Greensboro church.
Just last month, a federal judge said she would not be deported to Mexico. But ICE agents ordered her to meet them in Charlotte today.
She and her supporters traveled to Charlotte for the meeting. Dozens of people were behind her carrying signs of love. She was released with an ankle monitor and a smile on her face, because she will be allowed to stay in North Carolina. She will also have to check in every month.
