LOS ANGELES--An immigration activist who sought refuge inside a Chicago church for a year was arrested in Los Angeles on Sunday afternoon after taking her campaign on the road.
Elvira Arellano was arrested about 4:15 p.m. Chicago time by law enforcement officials after leaving Our Lady Queen of Angels Church in downtown Los Angeles, said Emma Lozano, an adviser who was there during the arrest.
Justice has prevailed! This women, an illegal immigrant, has evaded justice since a deportation order was issued in 1997, she was holed up in a sanctuary/church for over a year and now she is a speaker on "immigrant rights". The media will now make this women and her son the "martyr's" of this cause. Oh well, the right thing was done.
