About 15% of the total jail population in the USA are female. The bulk of those are Hispanic and Black.
A grim 80% of these women have dependent kids. And some 86% have been victims of sexual violence.
Horrifically a third of these women are schizophrenia, bipolar or clinically depressed.
So not only are minority kids stuck with single moms on welfare, but many will see 'mom' end up in jail, fined and worse.
