The U.S. has deported 46,000 Parents with Citizen Kids in Just Six Months. The rising number of parental deportations has corresponded with an overall increase in immigration enforcement under the Obama administration; in fiscal year 2011, a record 397,000 people were deported.  

New data, released to the Applied Research Center in September, reveals that more than 22 percent of all people deported in the first half of this year were parents of citizen kids. If rates of parental deportation remain steady in the year to come, The number of children of non-citizens placed in the U.S. child welfare system will no doubt rise
