Key Findings: There are at least 5,100 children currently living in foster care who are prevented from uniting with their detained or deported parents.

Federal, state and local governments must create explicit policies to protect families from separation.
These polices should stop the clock on the child welfare process and the immigration enforcement process to ensure that families can stay together and allow parents to make the best decisions for the care and custody of their children.
