Children in Harm’s Way

January 31, 2013
Children of immigrants are a fast growing population, and the criminal justice system has become a key player in the deportation of their parents.  

The Sentencing Project and First Focus, two organizations with very distinct missions, have joined forces to produce a new and timely publication explaining how children are harmed when the criminal justice, immigration enforcement, and child welfare systems converge in a parent’s life.

Children in Harm’s Way is a compilation of articles written by leading scholars, policy analysts, and practitioners from a variety of disciplines. It is an essential primer explaining the principles and mechanics of current harmful policies that will help readers understand what is at stake for children in the unfolding discussions on immigration reform.
