UnidosUS white paper highlights the harm to children, families, and communities caused by the Trump administration's interior immigration enforcement policies.

Family Separation in the Trump Era


Indiscriminate enforcement and worksite raids, a revival of anti-immigrant activity at the state level, and the undermining of our legal immigration system are all putting nearly 6 million U.S. citizen children at risk of separation from their families. And many of these children are Latino.

Beyond the Border: Family Separation in the Trump Era outlines the harm to children, families, and communities caused by these policies in the areas of education, health and mental health, public safety and economic opportunity.

It is a plight that affects not just Latinos or immigrants. It’s having an impact on our entire country’s future and long-term vitality.
