Markey Says Perez Case Still Important To Him

An immigrant avoiding deportation by  seeking sanctuary in an Amherst church is getting support from U.S.  Senator Ed Markey.  

Lucio Perez, who is originally from Guatemala, has  been at First Congregational Church for several months.  

Markey visited  him on Sunday ahead of a town hall meeting in Amherst.  

The senator says  Perez's story is an example of the need for a nationwide comprehensive  immigration plan.

Markey says he has written two letters on behalf of Perez and says that he will will do whatever is necessary to keep Perez and his family in this country.
