When a parent is deported, the children stay in a foreign country and are put into a foster system without choice. More than two hundred and forty five children are in custody because their parents are being deported back to their country but many parents decide to take the risk and stay in the country. This leads to serious jail time in the future if they are caught. These children spend approximately five months in government Custody, before they get in contact with their parents. Many of these children decide to not be deported even when given the option to be deported along with their parents. They take a very big risk to make a living on their own in the states without any Guidance. This is very dangerous, especially if they are living in a country where they do not know the language. Parents are not abandoning their children but weighing things such as the dangers the child faces in their home country-Gelernt, October 18th 2018. Experts have proved that children have been deeply traumatized by events happening in the foster system. Many children claim to suffer from nightmares, due to traumatic events. They are told if they misbehave they would not be let out of their foster home until they turn 18, the age where you become an adult. They would inject out of control kids they had strict rules, no touching, no talking, light on at 6:30 am and lights out at 8 pm.-Sandy, October 18 2018. A child named Sandy was put into the foster system once her parents were deported. While staying there Sandy had contracted conjunctivitis, conjunctivitis is a an inflammation of the eye.

A program called DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) is specifically for children whose parents came to the states , they have a two-year period of deferred action. Deferred action does not give permanent citizenship or residence. They can obtain a work permit in the U.S. This initially was created so that the children would have a better life and education. Since September 17th the program has been ended by our president Donald Trump. There could be a great impact on the economy, If Trump does not pass a plan to help DACA members. The United States will likely face a lot of backlash as businesses start to go down due to the fact that this program is ending. Our country’s immigrants have made a major component to the U.S. about 5 percent of DACA members have started up their own business, this is contributing to our economy. There are over 28.8 million small business in america, about 99.7 percent of all are U.S business. They employ about half of the country, these employees add value to the economy. If you were to take away a large portion of these jobs a fiscal shock will occur-Rafael Medina, April 15th 2018. Deporting DACA members also hurts us, This is something very important that many fail to understand.Many people may argue and say that immigrants coming to the U.S is wrong because they take american jobs and lower wages. This is in fact a myth, illegal immigrants actually raise our wages. They boost our economy by hiring undocumented immigrants to work low wage jobs. immigrants have had a major impact on our society,politically,and culturally. They increase both the supply and demand sides of our economy. This creates substantial economic growth. Immigrants don’t hurt us and they do not pose a threat like many may see, they deserve to start a new better life in a place where they feel the safe.
