Second-grader Saul Arellano, a US citizen, appeared in Mexico's 500-member Chamber of Deputies to plead for help in lobbying Washington to stop the deportation of his mother, an illegal immigrant who has taken refuge in a Chicago church. His efforts paid off with a resolution calling on the US Congress to suspend the deportation of Elvira Arellano (31) and any other illegal immigrant parents of US citizens. US officials said there is no right to sanctuary in a church under US law, and nothing to prevent them from arresting Elvira Arellano, who has lived at the church since Aug. 15, the day she was supposed to surrender for deportation.

Iraqi troops seized the west Baghdad headquarters of the Association of Muslim Scholars, a powerful Sunni Muslim group. Two bombs exploded on opposite sides of Baghdad, killing at least three civilians. Clashes were under way in two villages, one Shiite and one mixed, east of Baqouba. Five people were killed, two civilians and three al-Qaida members, and six others injured in the fighting. A leader of a Sunni group formed to resist al-Qaida in Iraq claimed that US troops mistakenly killed dozens of his fighters during a 12-hour battle north of Baghdad. He said he tried repeatedly to call the Americans and tell them they were fighting "their friends.” US military officials said American troops killed 24 fighters and captured 16 in a battle in the same area. Penetrators were used in an attack against a US Stryker vehicle near an entrance to the Green Zone, killing an American soldier and wounding five others. 2 Iraqi civilians also were killed. A US soldier was killed in an explosion in Diyala province that wounded four other soldiers.
