A Mexican family scheduled to be deported on Thursday has been granted sanctuary by a suburban Cleveland church.  Leonora Garcia and her four American-born children are now living in an apartment above the church.

“I want to stay here for my family, because I love my family," Garcia said, briefly addressing a small crowd on the steps of Forest Hill Presbyterian Church.
