A Colombia missionary who was granted asylum by a U.S. judge in October may be deported back to her native country, where her life was being threatened, according to a MyFOXOrlando.com report.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, has appealed the asylum case because they say Janeth Reyes assisted the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, but Reyes says FARC tried to kill her in 2005 while she was trying to convert the group to Christianity.
Through a translator, Reyes told the station that for years she preached to the terrorist group to give up bombs for Bibles and would attend gatherings with FARC members to push her message.
But when some FARC members sought to convert, the group started to terrorize her, and after years of abuse she fled to Orlando, MyFOXOrlando.com reported.
If her asylum case is reversed she fears returning to Colombia.
A spokeswoman for ICE contacted Thursday evening by FOX News said she could not immediately comment on the case, because the she did not have all the information needed.
