( CNN) The decision to come to the United States wasn’t an easy one. Carolina, a 33 -year-old mother of three, said it was perhaps one of the toughest decisions of their own lives — one taken after many sleepless nights in her Barquisimeto, Venezuela, apartment.

Holding back tears, she remembers a night spent on the floor. She huddled with her three kids, praying, as Venezuelan government forces fiercely clashed with protesters outside her apartment walls. In the streets anti-government protesters demanded Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro step down. Their protests were met with tear gas, water cannons, and rubber bullets. During that night of April 11, three Venezuelans would die in the Barquisimeto area.
“The hardest moments happened on the last days, ” Carolina said. Carolina is not her real name. She has asked to remain anonymous for dread of reprisal against their own families in Venezuela.
