"In closing, Kling said, "We basically have two individuals with first- to second-grade educations and although they have the capacity to love and care for their children, they do not have the capacity to understand their immense medical needs to properly address them.""
Really? Since when did Spanish become a language with no medical terminology? If the interpreters are doing their jobs, there is NO lack of understanding.
There is this idea that Spanish-speaking individuals are not intelligent enough to 'understand' things. Considering medical terminology is latin and greek based, and so is Spanish--English being only loosely related--I'd say a Spanish-speaking parent has a higher capacity of understanding medically related terminology and explanations.
There is no such thing as an "ANCHOR BABY".
People are deported all the time and their children put into foster care. It's deplorable.
SunniMei, where does it say the parents are getting hundreds of thousands of dollars a year?
Which do you think the parents would prefer? Poverty or America? I think the choice is pretty clear.
Since when is it anybody's business how many children a person has? Are you implying that genetically inferior humans shouldn't be allowed to breed? Are you saying eugenics is acceptable?
This case is completely disgusting. It's pretty obvious these children are only in state custody because it suits the states' purposes, not because the children are actually being neglected. Saying these parents only have the educations of second graders does not mean they are children--they are loving adults who obviously know how to care for their disabled children and have done everything the state asked of them.
Everyone knows disabled kids in state custody get more money per month for care than non-disabled kids. That is why every kid who goes into custody is immediately drugged up--because drugged kids get more money than undrugged kids! When you have kids this this you've practically hit the JACKPOT! No wonder the foster parents want to adopt them! They're set for life!
This case has been handled illegally. You cannot take the children without a warrant signed by a judge, which I'm sure wasn't done. You have to prove BEFOREHAND that neglect was occurring. This obviously wasn't done. These parents were intimidated by the presence of cops on purpose in order to force their compliance to an illegal kidnapping by the state. Poor parents probably didn't know their rights.
Let me paint this picture for you: these children, who are legal citizens, are going to continue to be a drain on society no matter who cares for them. In foster care, they will be even MORE of a drain. Now taxpayers will have to pay for their room and board and clothes etc--instead of just their medical costs! So everybody can just stop worrying about that right now. It's better for taxpayers when children are in their own parents' care.
The state (and by that I mean this states' version of the Department of Human Services / Child Protective Services) makes no money off of disabled children in their parents' care. It's easy to take disabled children from their parents ("What's that, doctor? You think these children might be starving but you have no proof? That's enough to terminate their rights!!"), place them in foster care, and rake in the dough. Especially if mom and dad are illegals and speak no English.
I'm appalled that so many people think it's ok to kidnap people's children simply because the parents do not speak english or have citizenship. What a sorry lot Americans have become--to be so vile and evil and contemptible.
