Separation, Deportation, Termination "In the context of undocumented immigrant families, fitness is no longer an obstacle to the termination of parental rights. Increasingly, when courts and agencies believe that termination is in a child’s best interest, they will find that a parent’s undocumented status alone is sufficient to demonstrate unfitness. Then, having essentially eliminated the fitness requirement, courts and agencies are able to base termination of parental rights solely upon a best interest of the child analysis. This article explores this increasing phenomenon and explains why it is occurring and why no one has noticed." Prof. Marcia Anne Yablon-Zug, University of South Carolina School of Law, July 26, 2010.
