New Study of the Center for Migration Studies of New York
On January 31, 2017, the Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS) released a study on the impact of President Donald Trump’s large-scale deportation plan on US families and the US economy. The report provides a statistical portrait of the US undocumented population, with an emphasis on the social and economic condition of mixed-status households (that is, households that contain a US citizen and an undocumented resident). The study finds that mass deportations would plunge millions of US families into poverty, cost $118 billion to care for US-Citizen children of deported parents, imperil the housing market, and reduce GDP.
