Deported parents may lose kids to adoption

It had been 10 weeks since Ramos had last held her 2-year-old, Alexa. Ten weeks since she was arrested crossing the border into Texas and U.S. immigration authorities seized her daughter and told her she would never see the girl again.

What followed — one foster family’s initially successful attempt to win full custody of Alexa — reveals what could happen to some of the infants, children and teens taken from their families at the border under a Trump administration policy earlier this year. The “zero-tolerance” crackdown ended in June, but hundreds of children remain in detention, shelters or foster care and U.S. officials say more than 200 are not eligible for reunification or release.

Federal officials insist they are reuniting families and will continue to do so. But an Associated Press investigation drawing on hundreds of court documents, immigration records and interviews in the U.S. and Central America identified holes in the system that allow state court judges to grant custody of migrant children to American families — without notifying their parents.

    • Well as I posted the other day, christian adoption agencies are getting paid big money to put these kids in with religious families. The kids get indoctrinated into the church. A lot of them stay religious all their life. Religious families are told it is their christian duty to adopt these children from sinful parents and teach them about god. It is shameful and should be against the law, but they are doing it. Betsy Devos the education secretary , her family has given millions to these type of adoption agencies. Hugs

      • So – as I said – this is DICTATORSHIP of trump – The leader of the unfree and suppressed minority of the USA.
        And this is the collective miserable fail of a great part of the American justice. – keeping in mind, that the American electorial system wirh the electorial college just fits the “owning part” of American society and the white christian supremacists.
