She came to national prominence in November 2018, when she was deported from the Philippines for her role in documenting human rights violations, after having come to the attention of President Duterte,
Sister Fox first went to the Philippines in 1990. During her time in the country, she was active in the Diocesan Justice and Peace Group, as well as serving as both the Central Luzon co-ordinator and National co-ordinator of the Rural Missionaries of the Philippines.
