Some undocumented immigrants in the Chicago area are relieved President Obama will issue an executive order that stops the deportation of the parents of U.S. citizens and permanent residents.
One woman who's happy is Maria Picazo, of the Marquette Park neighborhood. She came to the U.S. from Mexico in 1991.
Her husband and her four kids are all legal, U.S. citizens. Her son is looking to join the Marine Corps, and a daughter is in community college.
“It’s been difficult because I’ve tried to stay in my home but I’m facing necessities. I’ve had fear that I’d leave and not return. If my kids saw that I was late coming home, they’d have fears that something had happened and immigration took me away," said Maria Picazo.
