Watch Oscar's story
On Jan. 18, Oscar Canales took sanctuary at the Congregational United Church of Christ in Greensboro, North Carolina. Oscar, who came to Greensboro from El Salvador in 2005, has three children. In 2012, Oscar started his own roofing company, employing several U.S. citizens.
"It will be really hard on my mom and my brother and sister without my Dad around," said Oscar's 17-year-old daughter Shirley Canales. "We're really hoping he'll be able to come home soon to tuck them in at night again."
