With no end in sight, Maplewood church vows to keep Honduran man in sanctuary
"Thanks to the church, I'm still seeing my family," said. Alex Garcia, who attends mass on Sunday, Jan. 1, 2018 at Christ Church in Maplewood. Had he not sought sanctuary, he would have been sent to Honduras, 1,500 miles from his family. Never would he consider leaving his family behind or taking them to a country they've never known. "There is no life for my kids in Honduras," said the father of five children, ages 4 to 13, who live 2 1/2 hours away in Poplar Bluff, Missouri.
