Federal Transition Priorities to Defend and Support America’s Children in Immigrant Families

Anti-immigrant policies advanced by the Trump Administration have caused devastating harm to children in immigrant families and left a moral stain on our country. Children in immigrant families now comprise 1 in 4, or approximately 18 million, of all children in the United States — and their wellbeing matters to our country’s future. Over 5 million children have at least one parent who is undocumented and more than half a million children have a parent who is a DACA or TPS recipient. In effect, this is an entire generation of American children; thus, it is in all our interests to ensure that our policies promote, not undercut, their long-term outcomes.
