"A sustained federal crackdown made 2011 a banner year for deportations. A
record 397,000 undocumented immigrants were sent packing. And while the
Obama administration cheers that more than half of those deported were
convicted of crimes, advocates warn of a troubling by-product of rising
immigration enforcement: children left behind as natural-born citizens
absorbed by the foster-care system." - San Antonio Current, Nov. 16, 2011.
