When Vicky Chavez fled Honduras in 2014 to escape domestic violence and the country’s general social problems, she did not expect to be forced to return. The young mother’s worst nightmare came true in January this year when she was ordered to leave the United States and return to her home country. However, instead of boarding the flight back to Honduras, Chavez sought sanctuary in a Salt Lake City church, where she remains, along with her two young children. Although there is no law specifically forbidding law enforcement officials from entering the First Unitarian Church in Salt Lake City, where the Chavez family have been for over a month, there is a policy protecting sensitive locations, including churches. While Chavez is, of course, appreciative of the support shown to her and her children, she hopes that a satisfactory resolution to her case is reached soon.
