In the United States today millions of citizens live with at least one family member, often a parent, who is undocumented. Children make up the majority of these U.S. citizens. Additionally many U.S. citizen children of undocumented deportees may end up in the foster care system, often for no other reason than the undocumented status of a parent. Additionally immigration enforcement actions—and the ongoing threats associated with them—have significant physical, emotional, developmental, and economic repercussions on the children left behind. It can greatly benefit the relationship when those working with children and families dealing with immigration issues understand current policy and can answer referral questions posed by families. This training will review current changes to immigration law and policy, review client rights and referral options.
