Ingrid Encalada Latorre
Mother who spent five months in sanctuary returns to sanctuary
Ingrid Encalada Latorre, a mother of two young boys, spent over five months in sanctuary at a Quaker Meeting in Denver to avoid deportation. In May 2017, she was granted a temporary stay of deportation, giving her a few months to pursue the next steps in her case.
But after a judge ruled not to reopen her case and Colorado Gov. Hickenlooper refused to grant her a pardon, Latorre was left with no more options to keep her family whole.
On Oct. 17, she reentered sanctuary rather than break apart her family. Read more from the Metro Denver Sanctuary Coalition.
