Some undocumented immigrants living in southwestern Connecticut say they fear that President-elect Donald Trump will move to have them deported, according to an immigration attorney.
Alex Meyerovich says the Trump victory has left many immigrants uncertain about their futures in America.
Pedro Vilarva, 21, says now that Trump has been elected president, he is terrified that the Republican will make good on his promise to revoke President Barack Obama's executive order back in 2012 that prevented millions of undocumented people like him from being deported. 
President Obama's executive order allows people like Vilarva to get jobs, Social Security numbers and driver's licenses, as well as go to school.
Meyerovich says the American Civil Liberties Union has vowed "to use every resource available under the law" to keep immigrants like Vilarva from being deported once Obama's executive order expires on Jan. 20.
