ColorLines' Multimedia Feature: Elvira Arellano

COLORLINES unveils a multimedia special feature about sanctuary seeker and COLORLINES Innovator, Elvira Arellano.

A 31 year-old single mother, former airport worker and undocumented immigrant, Elvira Arellano took sanctuary last August in a Chicago church and became the lighting rod in a debate over the rights of immigrant families.

In three new pieces on COLORLINES.com Elvira Arellano talks about her journey from the border to church sanctuary and defying deportation.
