Abstract

Deportations of unauthorized immigrants continue at record levels. Since President Barack Obama took office two-thirds of the nearly 2 million deportation cases involve people who had committed minor infractions, or had no criminal record at all. In this paper I will address the opposition people have with deportations. I will discuss the impact deportations play on a families and the toll it takes on the people they leave behind. This study uses demographic information collected by the US census, scholarly articles, and personal testimonies of young adults affected by this government actions showing the effects deportation has had on the population. This paper will show the ripple effects deportations are having in the wider community.
