Hernandez Garcia sought sanctuary at the First Unitarian Society of Denver last October while he petitioned the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to drop his deportation order.
Hernandez Garcia said his fight to stay in the U.S. was about his wife and two daughters.
"Coming here for work and for a better life for my family," Hernandez Garcia said.
ICE took action against Hernandez Garcia when he was arrested after a fight at work. However, Hernandez Garcia was found not guilty of the charge at trial.
ICE sent a statement to 7NEWS last year that said, "A federal immigration judge granted his request for a 60-day voluntary departure in October 2012. This voluntary departure order reverted to final orders of deportation when Mr. Hernandez Garcia did not return to Mexico as agreed by Dec. 1, 2012. ICE remains focused on smart and effective immigration enforcement that prioritizes the removal of convicted criminals and egregious immigration law violators."
