Lucio Caciano, an undocumented Mexican immigrant and Sunnyvale resident, saw a glimmer of hope on Dec. 11 in a small, sedate San Francisco courtroom.

An immigration judge told him that despite many hurdles, he should find a lawyer and apply for a special immigrant religious worker visa application before his next hearing on Feb. 19.
