Immigrants refuse aid for fear it will doom green card hopes

Laura Peniche joins one of her three children, 6-year-old Leonardo, at a playground in the north Denver suburb of Thornton, Colo. Peniche, 34, came from Mexico as a teen and has protection from deportation under DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. When she was struggling financially this past year, she traveled all over Denver to get free food from churches to feed her three young children. She was too scared to apply for government food assistance. (David Zalubowski/AP)
