TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

New developments on the story of Daniel Ruiz who is taking sanctuary at Southside Presbyterian Church to avoid deportation.

The church pastor tells Tucson News Now Ruiz' case is in review by the feds and it could close as early as today.

This would mean that Ruiz would be able to stay in the U.S. Ruiz said his lawyer called him this morning to let him know that the Mexican Consulate in Phoenix was working with Immigration Customs and Enforcement officials to get him to stay under new guidelines set in place by the Obama Administration. 

Ruiz said he was excited and nervous waiting for the news.

He arrived at Southside Presbyterian Church Tuesday evening when he was supposed to report to the Tucson ICE office for self-deportation. 

A vigil was held at the church this evening. Stick with us as we follow this story.
