The undocumented Columbus resident who took refuge in a church to avoid deportation is now officially a fugitive.  Edith Espinal remained in the church yesterday, instead of obeying a federal order to return to her native Mexico. Repeated attempts to gain asylum failed.  The feds say it's against policy to enforce immigration actions at churches.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
