Samuel Oliver-Bruno, who has been living in sanctuary in Durham, North Carolina for the last 11 months, was seized for deportation after leaving sanctuary to provide fingerprints for his petition for deferred action.
Dozens of supporters, including local faith leaders and Oliver-Bruno’s son, who is a US citizen, were arrested while blocking his arrest in protest, prayer and song.
