US: How Immigrants Prepare for the Possibility of Deportation
Vice – October 19, 2016
On the low end, an estimated 740,000 parents with US-citizen children were deported between 2003 and 2013, according to a joint report from the Migration Policy Institute and the Urban Institute. The result is often chaos for families. At best, children are thrown to an unprepared caregiver such as a grandparent or older sibling. At worst, they end up in foster care or even adopted by a US family, preventing children from reuniting with their biological parents.
