A new study will look at how the deportation of undocumented Mexican migrants affects their U.S.-born children, according to a statement by the University of Texas at Austin. Researchers from that school along with those with the University of California at Davis Health System and the National Institute of Psychiatry will use well-tested clinical measures and in-depth interviews of 80 children in Austin, Sacramento and Mexico. The researchers will measure for factors such as depression, trauma and effects on self-esteem and self-image. The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development awarded the study a two-year, $182,000 grant with an expected completion date in 2014.
