Only half of all children living on the border come from immigrant families—families with at least one parent born abroad. Moreover, 93% of all border kids live in families with at least one working parent, which mirrors the statewide percentage, and the vast majority of children of immigrants living on the border—81%—are U.S. citizens, a rate on par with the rest of California. These are a few of many clarifying data points included in The Unique Challenges to the Well-Being of California’s Border Kids.
