Separation of Families



Literature Review

The immigration policy enacted by the Congress of the United States aims at increasing
border security and authorization of work. Unfortunately, the immigration policy puts to risk the
fate of over 11 million undocumented citizens in the United States. Among these vulnerable
people are mixed-status families that comprise of undocumented citizens and U.S citizens as
members of one family. Vargas (2015) used logistics regressions to assess how the risk of
deportation in mixed status families affects the probability of Medicaid use. The findings of the
research reveal that the immigration policy increases the risk of deportation which in turn is
associated with a decrease in the use of public services such as Medicaid.
In “US Immigration Policy and the Case for Family Unity,” Gubernskaya & Dreby
(2017) evaluate how the US immigration policy affects family unity. The authors argue that for
the last fifty years, the government of the United States has allowed the admission of a large
number of family-based migrants. However, changes in immigration policies led to the increased
number of undocumented migrants and mixed-status families. Further, some other restrictive
policies have led to prolonged durations of family separation. Such policies coupled with
aggressive enforcement render US-born children of undocumented parents with poor social and
economic support. This, the authors argue, is a result of the destruction of family unity which
acts as an important factor in determining the social and economic well-being of immigrants.
Zayas & Heffron (2016) argued that the detention and deportation of the undocumented parents
of US-born children have a detrimental impact on the mental health of such children. According
to Zayas & Heffron, for every two adults deported, one citizen-child is directly affected. Chavez
et al. (2012) also argue that argue that the legal vulnerability, risk of deportation and detention of
undocumented parents of citizen-children has a far reaching impact in causing depression, social-

isolation, aggression, anxiety, negative academic consequences and self-stigma among the USborn children. In the article “The children left behind: The impact of parental deportation on
mental health,” Allen, Cisneros & Tellez (2013) also found that US-born citizen had a higher
probability of being affected by depression, showing signs of misconduct, anxiety and aggression
than other children whose parents were not exposed to the risk of deportation or who were not
deported. Also according to the American Psychological Association, Presidential Task Force on
Immigration (2012), citizen-children and their undocumented siblings mostly have poor
economic status, as well as poor mental and physical health.
In their article “Immigration policies hurt immigrant families more than they help,”
Abrego & Gleeson (2013) review the effect of immigration policies on immigrant Latino
families and conclude that the immigration policies have a more significant effect of hurting the
families that helping them. The author’s argue that immigration policies inhibit immigrant
workers from accessing labor r...
