US wants to avoid pulling what may be thousands of migrant children from 'sponsor' homes to rejoin parents, saying it "could be traumatic to the children."

Translation: the billionaires who own the foster/adoption agencies are making $$$ off each 'lost' kid, those same billionaires made large donations to trump.

Please don’t assume, I’m a foster parent and I along with many I know reached out to see about taking in a child to help make sure they didn’t end up in the cages. I’m not saying that is the case with every child placed but some went in with pure intentions.

Of course I do, the idea of fostering isn’t keeping a child it’s helping while they are in the system. As a foster parent you have no say on when they go home or even when they get to see their parents. That is all on government workers

Exactly. The fault is with the system & the fiends who created it.

But this system was problematic until this admin which puroosefully broke it with deliberate cruel intentions . Child separation usef to be from unfit parents and abuse not to try and send a message to immigrants to stay out

You know what's even more traumatizing? Stealing them from their parents in the first place, not keeping track of where they went, and then refusing to return even the ones they can still find.

Yes. Add this to the list of bad Trump admin policies and practices that should be investigated by the House Homeland Security Committee to hold leaders accountable.

Those kids were forcibly removed from the parents, basically kidnapped.

state sponsored genocide: removing the children of one ethnic group and placing them into the care and upbringing of another.

This is state sponsored kidnapping. Those responsible should be tried in The Hague for crimes against humanity.

Yeah, I worry about rescuing trafficked children for the same reason. We certainly wouldn't want to traumatize them by returning them to their families!

These are trafficked children. Done by our own government.
