“As I wrote then, the federal government deported 46,486 parents of US-citizen children in the 6 month period between January-June 2011,” said Seth Freed Wessler, Colorlines’ investigation reporter who filed the Freedom of Information Act request.

“The figure amounts to more than 22% of all deportations in that same period. The collateral effects of these deportations are mounting, and our investigation found that there are now over 5100 children in foster care whose parents have been detained or deported by federal immigration authorities.”
