By Esther Yu-Hsi Lee

In the 2014 fiscal year, 68,541 unaccompanied minor children and 68,445 “family units” such as women accompanied by children were apprehended by immigration officials along the southern border. A Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) analysis released Wednesday found that immigration judges ordered deportation for about 98.5 percent of women with children without legal representation even after they had passed their “credible fear” interviews.
