Deportation and Families

The Deportation of a parent and it’s long term effects on their family

How does a family hold itself together after a parent has been ripped away from their lives,  Possibly forever? That is a question that no family should have to ever be faced with.

Unfortunately between 2009 and 2013, nearly 4 million non citizens were deported, perhaps half a million of them parents of a U.S.-citizen child. Right now we face the real fear of those numbers going up.

President Donald J. Trump who not even 24hrs after appointment issued an executive order on immigration affecting millions of families.

The newly elected President issued an executive order temporarily banning travel from seven muslim-majority countries. The move, which has raised a series of legal questions, sparked protests around the country as people who had previously been approved to come to the United States were being detained at airports and companies such as Inmigracion Xpress are booked with people trying to get their status resolved.

This executive order does not include any countries from which radicalized muslims have actually killed americans in the US since Sep.11.2001.

Hostility Towards Immigrants in the US

With this new travel ban and the seemingly increasing hostility towards immigrants in this country. A colossal amount of non-residents are fearing for the future and the futures of their families. We could see the numbers of deported illegal immigrants skyrocket.

How will this affect their families?

How will this affect their children’s futures?

A child’s upbringing is their future. We’ve heard the story so many times, the child of a one parent home has the harder time in school. Leading to dropping out and teenage pregnancy.

When someone immigrates to the US they are putting everything they are into a brighter futures for them and their family.

Higher numbers of deportation will only lead to higher numbers of dropouts, teenage pregnancy, and illegal drug use.

Have you ever wondered what happened to the children of deported parents?

They usually go to live with distant relatives that are u.s. Citizens or if they don’t have any relatives then they enter the system.

There is no one to welcome them home. There’s no one to talk about their day. There is no one to cook them dinner. They are alone and usually surrounded by the worst of influences.

This in turn affects the Future of the united states because these children are a part of the future generation. What they can and can’t contribute to society affects everyone in this country.

To protect immigrant families is to protect american families. Our government needs to realize that we are all the same.
