WTF!!!

Immigrant Mom Loses Effort to Regain Son Given to US Parents
Quote:
In a controversial case that involved the rights of illegal immigrants and their young children, a Guatemalan mother lost her effort today to get back the five-year old son who was taken away from her after her arrest on immigration charges and put up for adoption in Missouri despite her objections.

A Missouri judge ruled the boy should stay with the Missouri couple, Melinda and Seth Moser, who took him into their home five years ago while his mother was in federal custody, where she attempted in vain to oppose the adoption proceedings.

"Nobody could help me because I don't speak English," said Encarnacion Bail Romero in an interview with ABC News.

The child, born as Carlos but renamed Jamison by the Mosers, has been with his adoptive parents in Carthage, Missouri since the age of 11 months.

The judge said the biological mother had no rights to even see her child, according to the mother's lawyer.

Asked if the Mosers would allow Bail Romero to see the child, the Mosers' attorney, Joseph Hensley, said the couple was "not willing to comment on that at this time."

'We're extremely happy about the decision," said Hensley, who also noted that the decision "really puts the biological mom in a difficult decision in terms of staying in this country."

You might want to look at the date that story was published.

Speaking of old articles, I don't remember seeing the connection to Milgram's experiment before:


And, of course, he deleted the tweet. Milgram's experiment is discussed here:

Noah Smith was making a nasty argument about Trump (and Fox News too), that the point of the concentration camps is to make his adherents more pliable.

So, um, wow. We are spending $775/child/night to keep migrant children in these camps.

Quote:
HHS has said it is holding nearly 12,000 immigrant children, most of whom crossed without a parent or legal guardian. The agency says the children stay in HHS facilities for 57 days on average before they are sent to live with a relative or placed in foster care.


So, the average stay in one of these don't call them concentration camps costs us $44,175 -- and that doesn't even buy toothpaste and soap, apparently. What in the ever-loving hell is going on here?

It would be cheaper just to put these kids up in a hotel.

GOP only cares about small guvmint until they can privatize it and milk billions out of the taxpayers. Which is exactly what is happening here.

This might be a case where appealing to Donald Trump's greed could work to the world's favor.

That would be genius. Some Democratic media operative needs to start putting this out there.

Have to imagine the conditions for adult migrants in detention centers are far worse.
