Lucero and Jessy Barrera run a business together, taking care of Utah children at Happy Zone Childcare in West Jordan, but before this morning they were scared they might get kicked out of the country.

The sisters are dreamers, the nickname for residents of the United States who were brought into the country as children and consider it their home country despite their undocumented status.

Sisters Lucero and Jessy were born in Mexico, but Utah is home.

“I feel at home here. I don't know Mexico, I don't remember it,” said Lucero.
