Activists Call for Obama Help on Immigration

That plea came outside immigration offices in Chicago as a mother of six filed for a stay of deportation.

Francisca Lino is being supported by Adalberto United Methodist Church.

That's the same church that offered sanctuary to another immigrant, Elvira Arellano. Arellano stayed at Adalberto for a year before being arrested and deported last August.

Lino's husband and six children are in the country legally.

Standing at Lino's side Monday, Congressman Luis Gutierrez urged Obama to fulfill his promises to bring about immigration reform if he becomes president.
