Gilmer, 23, and Glendi, 21, sit on stairs in the hotel basement with their 3-year-old daughter. They left Guatemala seeking a better life for their daughter, but have been staying in the basement for two months. They have seen others give up and return to their home countries, but they are determined to stay and hope to eventually make it into the U.S.
