Earlier this month the Obama Administration announced immigration raids that would be targeting women and children.
While ICE has not released figures on the number of families that could potentially be targeted in future raids, a total of 18,607 "women with children" removal orders were issued between July 2014 and December 2015, according to the most recent data from the Immigration Court.
The families involved lacked legal representation 86 percent of the time. Texas and California together accounted for nearly half (47%) of these orders. There are 20 states in which courts have issued at least 100 removal orders involving women with children.
