TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

After meeting with the bishop, a mother fighting for her daughter's freedom will continue to stay in downtown Tucson church.

Herminia Gallegos met with Bishop Kicanas, hoping he could help her daughter,Rosie, who is held at Eloy Detention Center.

According to the diocese, Kicanas sent a letter to the center asking for Rosie to be released to her family while their request for asylum is processed.

The request was denied, but Gallegos said she's hoping the bishop can do more, maybe a plea to Washington.

"He is someone special," she said."I have a faith."

The bishop told her that she is safe outside of the church, no one will apprehend her while her case is under review. She's been there for more than a week, and Gallegos said she's not leaving until Rosie returns.

"Here, I will continue," Gallegos said. "When my faith is strong enough, maybe Rosie will be released."

Kicanas will work to reunite the family, because he is always concerned about the separation of families and the deportation of them when there is no history of criminal activity, according to the diocese.
