Are migrant parents being deported without their kids?

Leah Chavla, a human-rights lawyer at the Women’s Refugee Commission, said that means parents who are separated from their children may not know where the kids are by the time they're deported, or even if they're released into the U.S. 

“ICE isn't always asking, 'Hey, do you have kid?' before they're deported,” Chavla said. “And people don't know to offer up that information. They assume that the government is going to know that information.”
