After more than 13 months spent living inside of Sherbrooke’s Plymouth-Trinity Church, trying desperately to avoid deportation back to Mexico, the members of the Rodriguez-Flores family made the decision to leave on Wednesday morning.
According to a press release issued by the group that has been supporting the family, Georgina Flores, Manuel Rodriguez and Manolo Rodriguez-Flores went with their lawyer, Stewart Istvanffy, to meet with the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) at 10 a.m., and a decision was subsequently made to lift the arrest warrant against the family.
Although this comes as positive news regarding the family’s uneasy predicament, there are certain conditions to the decision. The family is free to move about in Sherbrooke, but they will still need to deal with the deportation notice in January.
