Obama Administration Deported 46,000 Parents of United States Citizens in First-Half of 2011

Last weekend Chris Hayes did a segment on his MSNBC show about President Obama's deportation policy.  He put together a panel that took a look at the practical effect of the administration's record deportations.

What they found was that in the first six months of 2011, the Obama administration deported 46,000 parents of United States citizen children, many of whom became orphaned as a result.  In fact, there are 5,100 United States citizen children in foster care that have been separated from their mother or father who have either been deported or detained.  To put it in proper perspective, one-quater of all people deportated by this President are parents of United States citizen children.
