Thousands More Migrant Children Were Probably Taken From Families Than Reported

But even before the administration officially unveiled the zero-tolerance policy in the spring of 2018, staff of the United States Department of Health and Human Services, the agency that oversees the care of children in federal custody, had noted a “sharp increase” in the number of children separated from a parent or guardian, according to the report from the agency’s Office of Inspector General.

As of December, the department had identified 2,737 children who were separated from their parents under the policy and required to be reunified by a federal court order issued in June 2018.

But that number does not represent the full scope of family separations. Thousands of children may have been separated during an influx that began in 2017, before the accounting required by the court, the report said.

Thus, the total number of children separated from a parent or guardian by immigration authorities is “unknown,” because of the lack of a coordinated formal tracking system between the Office of Refugee Resettlement, the arm of Health and Human Services that takes in the children, and the Department of Homeland Security, which separated them from their parents.

Indiana State Sen. Dennis Kruse is one of the most anti-science, pro-forced Christianity legislators in the country. This is a guy who co-authored a bill to require recitation of the Lord’s Prayer in public schools, wanted Creationism taught in science classrooms, and tried making it illegal for kids to learn sex ed in school without their parents’ permission.

He’s just full of horrible ideas… yet he’s been an elected state official since 1989. Which is to say people keep re-electing him because he’s bad at what he does.

Again Christians think freedom of religion only applies if your religion is christian.

I share this to show how many Christians think freedom of religion applies only to their religion.  I just read of a political in Tennessee who claims only Christians should be allowed to hold office in this “Christian” nation.  Many churches and church schools teach that to students and they become adults thinking that is the truth.  We are becoming a Christian fascist nation soon to lose our civil rights and become a theocracy.   Even as religions lose members the evangelical christians are making a huge push to take over all aspects of government local, state, and federal.   Hugs

It seems it was not racism, but possible gang violence.   The driver of the attacking vehicle says they thought it was someone else and they fired into the car without checking.  I do not care, they killed without a care for taking life, they were set on killing.  They should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.  Hugs

Ultimately, a tip passed from civil-rights activist Shaun King to Gonzalez’s inbox during the middle of the week led investigators to Black’s Instagram account. The tip indicated that Black was driving the car with another man as a passenger.

The suspects did not resemble the sickly thin man with blue eyes and hints of stubble depicted in a sketch composite compiled with the help of Jazmine’s sister. Both of the suspects were black.

“We do not believe in any way that the family, as we’ve said from the beginning, that they’ve been involved in anything nefarious,” Gonzalez said. “It’s just went down very quickly. The gunfire erupted. We’re talking about small children. They witnessed something very traumatic. It’s likely the last thing they did see was indeed that truck and the driver in that truck.”

SOUTH CAROLINA IS LOBBYING TO ALLOW DISCRIMINATION AGAINST JEWISH PARENTS

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Fascism, Harm, History, News, Political, Questions, Race, Religion — Scottie @ 11:33

I have been saying it was only a matter of time before the christian bigots went after other groups they don’t like, and especially single women.   They are determined to make this country a christian theocracy where Christian rule and other must live as the Christians dictate.  Your freedoms don’t matter, all that matters is their religious doctrines get the force of law.   Hugs

https://theintercept.com/2018/10/19/south-carolina-foster-parent-discrimination-miracle-hill-ministries/

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION is considering whether to grant a South Carolina request that would effectively allow faith-based foster care agencies in the state the ability to deny Jewish parents from fostering children in its network. The argument, from the state and from the agency, is that the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act should not force a Protestant group to work with Jewish people if it violates a tenet of their faith.

The case being made by South Carolina is an extension of the debate around RFRA, which is more commonly associated with discrimination against LGBTQ people, but by no means applies exclusively to that group.

If granted, the exemption would allow Miracle Hill Ministries, a Protestant social service agency working in the state’s northwest region, to continue receiving federal dollars while “recruiting Christian foster families,” which it has been doing since 1988, according to its website. That discrimination would apply not just to Jewish parents, but also to parents who are Muslim, Catholic, Unitarian, atheist, agnostic or other some other non-Protestant Christian denomination.

Damn it, when will this bullshit end. You don’t need to abuse children to take care of them. These for profit detention centers need to end.
