Salt Lake City (KUTV) - An LDS mother of two is now living inside First Unitarian Church in Salt Lake City. She sought sanctuary there Tuesday night after choosing not to board a plane for Honduras.

Vicky Chavez was supposed to self-deport and was bringing her two kids, one of whom is an American citizen, with her.

However, at the last minute, she opted not to do that.

She fled Honduras in 2014, citing domestic violence, rape and persecution.

She has been seeking asylum in the U.S. — an application that is still pending.
