DENVER (AP) - The family of a man seeking shelter from immigration agents in a Denver church is flying to Washington to plead his case.

Arturo Hernandez’s wife and two daughters are scheduled to leave for the nation’s capital Tuesday to try to convince immigration officials to spare Hernandez. He’s been fighting deportation attempts for four years and took shelter in a Denver church in October as the date of his exit neared. If it were not for the longstanding deportation order against him, Hernandez would qualify for President Obama’s new program to keep immigrant families together.

One of Hernandez’s daughters is a U.S. citizen and the rest of his family also qualifies for deportation relief under Obama’s various immigration programs.
