An unprecedented increase in the deportation of undocumented immigrants has left an estimated 5,100 children languishing in U.S. foster homes. In the first six months of 2011, the Obama administration deported 46,000 parents of children who are U.S. citizens. Though USCIS does work with individuals in removal proceedings to ensure they have ample opportunity to make important decisions regarding the care and custody of their children, thousands of children enter the child welfare system and are often stuck there.
