Living in sanctuary ‘like jail,’ Raleigh man facing deportation says

Jose Chicas spends a lot of time on a porch of a home run by St. John’s Baptist Church in Durham, looking out on a street where he dares not walk.

Chicas fled a civil war in his native El Salvador three decades ago and has lived in the U.S. ever since. Earlier this year, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement told him he had to leave the country. He said he believes ICE’s stance is linked to his convictions for impaired driving and domestic violence 20 years ago.
