Ravi Ragbir, an undocumented immigrant and immigration rights activist, has had a busy week.

He was in ICE custody and then headed to the State of the Union after his release. Now he's been awarded a Bishop's Cross.

Ragbir received the rare honor from church leaders because of his work on behalf of immigrants. He spoke at a service at Saint Anne's on Sunday.

Ragbir was released from federal custody last week after a judge ruled that keeping him behind bars was "unnecessarily cruel."

He is still facing possible deportation as early as next Saturday.
