Families Separated and Immigrants Harmed by United States Deportation Policy
July 17, 2007

This 88-page report is the first comprehensive assessment of the deportation of non-citizens with criminal convictions and the impact on families and communities in the US. The mandatory deportation of legal immigrants convicted of a crime, even a minor one, has separated an estimated 1.6 million children and adults, including US citizens and lawful permanent residents, from their non-citizen family members. Many of those deported arrived in the US as children and were lawful permanent residents who had lived legally in the country for decades.
