OKLAHOMA CITY – For 20 years, Lili has been living in Oklahoma and raising her family.

Now, she worries that the life she knows will be ripped away from her under the new administration.

Lili was brought to the United States as a child and qualified for a program that allows undocumented immigrants to temporarily stay here.

Now, she fears that she will be deported under President-elect Donald Trump, forcing her to leave her children behind.

“I want him to have one day of the life that I live,” Lili told CNN.

Even though she bought a house and says she dreamed of it becoming a place for her grandchildren to visit, she is now giving up on that dream.

She is selling her home and preparing her children for her possible deportation.

“The fear is absolutely real. We have no idea what is going to come from the next administration. But there’s a lot of scary rumors and the president completely has the control to take some pretty significant action,” said Melissa Lujan, an immigration attorney.
