What happens to children when their parents are deported?
The Deportation of Innocence takes us on a journey into the experiences of four U.S.-born children and their immigrant families as they come to terms with deportation and the long-lasting effects this has had on their lives. For the children, this can mean growing up with an absentee parent, moving to a foreign country to reunite with their parents, being placed in foster care and in the most dire cases, being put up for adoption. This film takes us deep into the struggle of these American children as they are caught in the political crossfire between two nations.
