Facing Our Future: Children in the Aftermath of Immigration Enforcement

To see about about consequences of the deporting the parents of US citizen. Remember that there are 5.5 million children with unauthorized parents, (a little less than the population of the entire state of Tennessee) almost three-quarters of whom are U.S.-born citizens. Over several years, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) intensified enforcement activities through large-scale worksite arrests, home arrests, and arrests by local law enforcement.

A new report released today by the Urban Institute, titled "Facing Our Future: Children in the Aftermath of Immigration Enforcement," examines the consequences of parental arrest, detention, and deportation on 190 children in 85 families in six locations, providing in-depth details on parent-child separations, economic hardships, and children's well-being. The report also provides recommendations for stakeholders to mitigate the harmful effects of immigration enforcement on children.
