Tania Contreras, center, hugs her 15-year-old daughter Maryori Urbina Contreras, left, after her immigration hearing at Chicago Immigration Court Wednesday, Oct. 28, 2015. Fleeing violence in her home country of Honduras, Maryori travelled alone for several weeks in 2014 before reuniting with her mother, who has been in the United States since 2001. Her ongoing immigration case will eventually determine if she is allowed to stay in the U.S. or be forced to return to Honduras. At this hearing, the judge postponed a decision until 2018.
