The Arizona Republic reported Monday evening that Jesus Berrones, the father of five-year-old with a rare cancer, learned that he was granted the temporary year-long stay while at a church that offered him sanctuary.
ICE issued a previous one-year stay in June 2016, the statement said. That would allow Berrones to seek to have his deportation order canceled, which would open the door for him to remain in legally in the USA with his family.
The one-year stay granted Monday will allow Berrones to receive a work permit and remain in the USA while he tries to have his deportation case reopened so he can apply to remain in the country legally through his US citizen wife, Wilkes said.
Berrones, who lives in Arizona with his pregnant wife and five children, was eventually forced to seek refuge in a Phoenix church in order to avoid deportation.
Jesus Berrones, a 30-year-old illegal alien who said he was brought to the country by his parents as a baby, was taking sanctuary in Phoenix's Shadow Rock United Church of Christ since Friday.

Jesus Berrones, 30, has lived in the U.S. since he was a toddler and has five children in the country.
"He started crying, then his daughter started crying", Wilkes said of Berrones.

According to the Associated Press, Berrones, 30, was brought to the U.S.as a toddler, and reports say he is now granted permission to stay in the USA, for another year.
"I want to have a chance to be here illegally, so I can fix my papers and be with my family".
Last month he received a notice from ICE that he would be deported and when Wilkes refiled a request to stay he was told it was denied. "This is not just a man who is a husband and a father, he is an example to these kids".
In February 2016 he again encountered immigration authorities and was sentenced to 90 days in federal prison, according to an ICE official.
His lawyer, Garrett Wilkes told Lemon that Berrones had regular check-ins with ICE every six months until December, when he was told that he would be deported in January. Berrones's wife, Sonia, is pregnant with the couple's fourth child.
