ARC Report Nov 11--Shattered Families
Thursday, December 08, 2011
- Organization: Applied Research Center
The Applied Research Center recently released a national report detailing the intersection between immigration enforcement activities (S-Comm, local police calling ICE, etc) and immigrants’ children being thrust into the child welfare system as a result.
The report found a disproportionate number of DV victims, and other victims of gender-motivated violence, are at higher risk of having their children removed and placed into foster care after their contact with law enforcement.
