Connecticut: Koran teacher who overstayed visa by 30 years avoids deportation in church

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement ordered Sajuti to board a plane for Indonesia on Tuesday, but Sajuti and his wife, Dhalia, instead took sanctuary in Meriden’s Unitarian Universalist Church. He is the third illegal immigrant to seek sanctuary in a Connecticut church this year, according to the Hartford Courant.
