BROOKYLN - Immigrants rallied on the steps of Brooklyn Borough Hall Thursday in fear of deportation. 

Martin Batalla Vidal, an immigrant from Mexico, is challenging a court order from Texas that blocked President Barack Obama's immigration relief nationwide.

"We contribute a lot to this country, so I feel like it's already time to give us immigration reform since we're already contributing," Vidal says. 

Many immigrant families say they drop off their kids at school every morning and fear they won't be able to pick them up. 

They say they just want justice and to live without fear of deportation.
