Immigration laws are breaking families apart, deporting too many parents with US-born children
"An estimated 3.1 million U.S.-citizen children have at least one parent who is undocumented. Many others have at least one parent who is a permanent legal resident who can be subject to deportation for minor legal infractions upon filing for a change of immigration status. Every year, thousands of children are separated from a parent who has been deported." Albor Ruiz, July 9, 2009.
