Detention and Deportation Will Open Foster Care Floodgates

We hope that child safety will remain a bipartisan issue in Congress, and that there will be bipartisan support for enforcing immigration law in a way that is not only humane, but that also upholds the safety and well-being of children.

    No need for foster care if the illegals simply take their resource-squandering anchor children home with them.

    On March 29th, our state’s Governor Malloy opted to spend taxpayer dollars to create a “toolkit” for immigrant parents. This “toolkit” is designed to help immigrant parents create and have a plan in place to have their children cared for by a friend or family member in case they were deported by federal agents and their children separated from them. Imagine the sheer hypocrisy and irony of this when we consider that every day across this state, our state’s dysfunctional and inherently corrupt “family” courts (and DCF) routinely separate children from their parents, grandparents and family members – without any valid or reason or cause. In open defiance and violation of state and federal law by completely ignoring and trampling fundamental parental, civil liberty and due process rights. By completely ignoring the state and federal Constitutions and fundamental right of every fit parent to the equal care, custody and control of their children. Which has been upheld by every ruling of the Supreme Court of the United States going back well over a hundred and fifty years. All of this very well documented and being exposed on social media and across the country for what it is – the state sanctioned trafficking of children by this state for SSA Title IV federal grant dollars. As this state is balancing its budget by using millions of dollars of federal matching funds the federal government provides to this state for every dollar this state collects in child support – and generated by our state and courts keeping children from seeing and being raised by both of their parents. Why isn’t Governor Malloy and the state extending the parents and citizens of this state and country the same kind of protections and “toolkit”? Why isn’t Governor Malloy and this state making any effort to ensure that our children benefit from having access to, and being raised by, both of their parents and all of their family members after an adult relationship has ended? Why has our attorney packed and led Judiciary Committee killed every family court reform bill and shared parenting bill for the second year in a row? Why has the Judiciary Committee simply rubber stamped three of the most horrific and problematic family judges right back to the bench for eight years in spite of mountains of evidence submitted to them reflecting their judicial misconduct and violations of law and the Constitution? (I and my family are immigrants from a former communist country. My family suffered at the hands of the Nazis and then Stalin. What we have seen and experienced in this state’s family court system…. is what my family came to this country to escape from.)

    Sadly, The result of thoughtless liberal sanctuary city policies. Liberals should have considered this before breaking the law. Therefore, be prepared to endure the societal and financial burden.

    The International Social Service network provides cross border services to support permanency planning across international borders. We work with states to ensure that children are not lost in the system and that the parents‘ rights are protected. WE have member units in over 120 countries. We must do as much as we can to protect both the children‘s rights and the parents‘ rights in these cases. Far too often the parents‘ rights are terminated in absentia and the children are adopted.
