Consequences Of Deportation On Families

The deportation process has proved to have a lot of adverse effects to the families that have been separated. Discussed here are some of the consequences of the deportation process.

The increase of children that are raised by adoptive parents is on the rise.

This is a devastating experience more so in this hard economic times where both parents need to chip in and provide for the family. The parent that is left behind is also left with the task of dealing with the immigration services and bring back their partners back in the country.

Hence when one of the family members leaves the other partner has to find a way to make ends meet. The other effect is that people are left with the stress of finding for the family by themselves. Those kids that have experienced the deportation of their parents are always afraid that they are going to be deported to. This constant fear is not healthy because it causes anxiety and depression to the kids.

As a result, most of them end up developing severe health conditions.
