Tania Contreras presses her hand into her face as she sits in the car of Julie Contreras (no relation), a volunteer with the League of United Latin American Citizens of Lake County, in Waukegan, before driving with her to an immigration hearing at Chicago Immigration Court Wednesday, Oct. 28, 2015. Fleeing violence in her home country of Honduras, Tania’s 15-year-old daughter Maryori Urbina Contreras 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. Tania was worried her daughter might be deported.
