DENVER (AP) - A Peruvian woman has sought sanctuary for a second time in Colorado rather than board a flight to her native country as ordered by immigration authorities.
The American Friends Service Committee said Tuesday that Ingrid Encalada Latorre has sought refuge in a Fort Collins church.
Latorre spent several months earlier this year inside a Quaker meeting house in Denver to avoid deportation for a 2010 conviction for possessing falsified or stolen identification papers.

A deportation order was put on hold while she appealed her conviction. That appeal was denied, and Gov. john Hickenlooper refused to issue her a pardon.
U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement had granted Latorre up to Tuesday to leave the country.
Latorre entered the U.S. in 2000 and has two U.S.-born children.
