dc.description The authors discuss a variety of possible reasons that a higher share of Latin American immigrants in the state of Texas would be removed from their homes for sexual abuse, including age, gender and the fear of the consequences of reporting abuse. They conclude that age and gender are not substantial contributing factors to the disproportionate share of immigrant children removed for sexual abuse. The more meaningful determinant seemed to be which county the child was residing in. The Houston and Austin metropolitan areas had the highest shares of children removed for sexual abuse, so this could be due to the higher number of unaccompanied alien minors, runaways, or CSE victims in these counties coming into contact with the child welfare system after fist being involved with law enforcement agencies.
