In this photo taken on Aug. 28, 2011, undocumented immigrant Maria Romero, holds her 8-month-old daughter Crista while she reads her Bible during a Disciples of Christ Sunday worship service led by the Pastor Elias Garcia, who says he is not afraid to reveal that he is an undocumented immigrant. As other Disciples of Christ churches have had to close due to the departure of immigrants fleeing the U.S. toughest of anti-immigration laws, Garcia’s congregation has grown from 40 parishioners to 300 in three years. Romero says she has found a second family in Garcia’s church whose followers include immigrants from Oaxaca, Sonora and Chiapas. (AP Photo/Nick Oza) less
