Deportations: A Resource Page
An estimated 2 million people have been deported since 2008. Even with an emphasis on enforcement measure, immigration reform legislation has remained stalled in Congress. Further delays on immigration reform and continued mass deportations also have economic and humanitarian implications for the United States. The IPC has compiled the following resources on the impact of deportations.
