"My two youngest kids -- well, the middle one, she's 12, she's really scared. Really scared," Maribelle says.
"I told my daughter to have faith, that we're together and whatever happens, we'll be together."
Maribelle says she prays. There are millions of people like her here, so she hopes she won't be deported. She also hopes that in three years, when her oldest son turns 21, he will be able to help her obtain legal status.
Olga is from Venezuela. She's in the United States legally, but her visa expires soon and she's here to find out how to apply for asylum -- to escape the political and economic instability in her country.
Her daughter, Maria, is a college student in New York and speaks English, so she accompanied her mother to Catholic Charities.
"They said we need proof," Maria says, explaining the asylum process. But, she adds, it's impossible to prove the risks her mother faces in her home country.
"A person who tells you to your face, 'I'm going to hurt you,' we cannot have proof of that. We have no proof that she's scared."
Maria would also prefer to remain in the United States after college. She says she's going to look for jobs here after she graduates but worries it might be hard to stay.
"It's difficult to think that we're going to have to go back to our country," Maria says. "We don't want to go back."
If things don't work out here, maybe they'll go to Canada. Her brother lives there, and Maria says she hears it's easier there.
Clusters of families wait in groups, whispering to each other, babies crying in strollers, preteens playing on parents' phones, a grandmother clutching her rosary as she waits for her name to be called.
Margarite is here with her 10-year-old daughter. Margarite is undocumented and has lived in the United States for 13 years.
Her 78-year-old mother is sick, and Margarite wants to return to Mexico to care for her. But she's worried that if she leaves the country, she won't be able to come back.
She's here to figure out if she can get a visa and what's possible for her and her family. She says she's been the victim of violence and hopes that will help her get a visa.
She's talked to her four children about what happens if she's deported. Although they were all born here and are US citizens, they've decided they want to stay together. So if she gets deported, they would go with her.
Her children tell her they're scared, they don't want her to get deported.
"I'm trying," she tells them.
