Contextualizing Health and Aging in the Americas Effects of Space, Time and Place
By William A. Vega, Jacqueline L. Angel, Luis Miguel F. Gutierrez Robledo and Kyriakos S. Markides

According to recent data (TRAC 2016), immigrants aged 50 and over account for only five percent of deportations, but in absolute numbers they have numbered between 13,000 and 16,000 annually, and hundreds of these elderly deportees have been age 70 andolder. The numbers of older immigrants at risk of deportation because they have unauthorized status in the United States will remain substantial and likely grow as the unauthorized immigrant population of some 11.1 million continues to age. From our theoretical perspective, this population will age with risks to mental health as enforcement becomes more aggressive under the Trump administration.
