Script Details

We are looking for heartfelt, but unbiased readings. Let the reading breath and do not rush through the script.  
In the first 6 months 2011, more than 46,000 parents of US citizen children were deported.
Those children are either placed in temporary foster care custody and then released to relatives. Or confined entirely within foster care system, even when there is no evidence of abuse or neglect by the parents.

These deportations shatter families and endanger the children left behind.

For example, detained or deported parents have no opportunity to make an orderly transition to their country of origin.

the children left behind often suffer from severe emotional or behavioral problems.

friends and relatives who assume parental responsibilities suffer financial and emotional hardship.

And the children who are placed with family and friends are the lucky ones. Imagine seeing your mom or dad arrested. And then moving-in with a foster family where the language, culture, food and house rules are all different.

Currently there are at least 5,100 children of deportees living in foster care, straining child welfare budgets, at an average of $40,000 per child, a total annual cost of over 200 million dollars.
his is a growing national problem, not one confined to border regions-- cases have been documented in at least 22 states.

And If nothing changes, an estimated 15,000 additional children will face a similar fate in the next 5 years.

Most child welfare departments lack clear protocols on reunifying children with deported parents. And when protocols do exist, the case plans are often very difficult for the newly departed parents to successfully complete. For example, In reunification plans involving California and Mexico, deported parents must: get a job, find an apartment, enroll in parenting classes, call their children every week, and file documentation of these activities with two government agencies in different countries.

And if the parent fails to complete the case plan on time, federal law requires foster care to petition the court to terminate parental rights.

If granted funding, this film will be an unbiased exploration of the intersection of immigration enforcement and the child welfare system. With the ultimate goal of sparking conversations about how we as a nation can best serve some of our most vulnerable citizens.
