"Facing Our Future: Children in the Aftermath of Immigration Enforcement" examines a sample of the more than 5 million children whose unauthorized parents have been scooped up by immigration authorities, and looks at housing, food, mental health and behavior, to create a picture of the affect of arrest, detention and deportation on children, most of whom are U.S. citizens.
