Undocumented immigrant mother, four children claim sanctuary in North Philly church

“I am not hiding,” Hernandez said in Spanish during an interview inside the church at 18th and Diamond streets. “I am here determined to fight for my children, and build the best life I can for them, and also to fight the injustice that so many immigrants are facing.”

    An undocumented immigrant mother has fled into the Church of the Advocate in North Philadelphia with her four children, declaring sanctuary in an effort to avoid a deportation to Mexico that she says could get them killed.

PennLive.com visited Historic Strawberry Mansion and Julia Hatmaker took some incredible photos of our holiday decor. While everyone talks about our ornate ballroom, they particularly like the banquet room with its mural of Fairmount Park. http://www.pennlive.com/life/2017/12/holiday_decorations_eleanor_ro.html

    This historic mansion is filled with treasures (and Christmas decorations): Cool Spaces
    Holidays and history coincide at the Historic Strawberry Mansion, a 18th century summer home built by one of Pennsylvania's foremost abolitionists, Judge William Lewis. The mansion is one of five historic homes participating in A Very Philly Christmas, a holiday house tour in Fairmount Park.
