The Catholic Church did the same thing with Jewish refugee children at the end of WWII ...

Report: Missing Migrant Children Being Funneled Through Christian Adoption Agency

MICHAEL STONE

The Trump administration says it can’t reunite missing migrant children with their families; instead, many of the children are being shipped to a Christian adoption agency with ties to Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.

Earlier this week the Trump administration told a federal court that it would require too much effort to reunite migrant children with their parents. Associated Press reports:

Quote:
The Trump administration says it would require extraordinary effort to reunite what may be thousands of migrant children who have been separated from their parents and, even if it could, the children would likely be emotionally harmed.

According to the Associated Press report, the Trump administration is also concerned that reunification would “present grave child welfare concerns” because the children would be removed from their “sponsor” homes:

Quote:
Jonathan White, who leads the Health and Human Services Department’s efforts to reunite migrant children with their parents, said removing children from ‘sponsor’ homes to rejoin their parents ‘would present grave child welfare concerns.’ He said the government should focus on reuniting children currently in its custody, not those who have already been released to sponsor homes.

The entire situation is horrific. Commenting on the horror, and expressing the feelings of many, Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley tweeted:

This is what evil looks like

BREAKING: Tonight the Trump administration filed documents that don’t dispute the recent report that there may have been thousands more separated kids. They’re arguing it would take too long to figure out where those kids are because they have no tracking system.

As for the fate of the thousands of children the Trump administration does not want to reunite with their parents, Progressive Secular Humanist previously reported that many of the migrant children ruthlessly separated from their family by the Trump administration are being shipped to Bethany Christian Services, a Christian adoption agency with ties to the family of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.

Last year Rewire News reported on the condition of some of those children separated from their parents, linking the migrant children to Bethany Christian Services:

Quote:
Migrant children in Michigan who have been separated from their parents by the Trump administration are attending “a special school” run by Bethany Christian Services, an anti-choice organization with a record of coercive adoption practices that has yet to receive instructions about how to reunify these children with their detained parents.

Fact checking website Snopes confirms the well established links between the DeVos family and Bethany Christian Services:

Quote:
The links between the extended DeVos family and Bethany are undeniable. Tax filings archived by ProPublica show that between 2001 and 2015, the Dick and Betsy DeVos Foundation (the philanthropic organization run by DeVos and her husband) gave $343,000 in grants to Bethany Christian Services.

Between 2012 and 2015, Bethany received $750,000 in grants from the Richard and Helen DeVos Foundation, which is run by the Education Secretary’s father-in-law, the billionaire founder of Amway Richard DeVos, and his wife Helen.

Furthermore, Brian DeVos — a cousin of Betsy DeVos’s husband Dick — was the Senior Vice President for Child and Family Services at Bethany as recently as 2015, and Maria DeVos — who is married to Dick DeVos’s brother Doug — has served on the board of Bethany.

Democratic Underground explains the nefarious methods of the “radical Christian adoption trafficking mill” being run by Bethany Christian Services, noting:

Quote:
They have no intention of trying to find, much less uniting parents with their children. It’s a radical Christian adoption trafficking mill.

In fact, there is already in place a huge and thriving business in the trafficking of children via Christian adoption agencies like the DeVos connected Bethany. In her 2013 book, The Child Catchers: Rescue, Trafficking, and the New Gospel of Adoption, Kathryn Joyce documents this alarming trend of conservative Christians adopting children removed from their natural parents via nefarious means to feed the business of Christian adoption and serve the agenda of Christian theocracy.

Bottom line: The Trump administration says it can’t reunite missing migrant children with their families; instead, many of the children are being funneled through Christian adoption trafficking mills like the DeVos connected Bethany Christian Services.

To repeat Senator Merkley: This is what evil looks like.

Those kids aren't "missing". They've been kidnapped. At least have the courage to call it what it is.

Agreed - kidnapped is the right word.

BTW - the article includes a link to this book (which I have not read).

Ask the MSM why they're "missing" and not "kidnapped". or "enhanced interrogation "rather" than "torture"?

KB, don't be disheartened ... be ENRAGED ~ this absolutely/positively ENRAGES me ~ :tearhair ~ I don't know if Kirstjen Nielsen is "just following orders" or is herself this cruel and getting her jollies by traumatizing kidlets for life, but she needs to be in prison for the rest of her life ~

Can it be MORE evil than it being done in the name of a "merciful, just, allegedly all loving 'God'?" Now we know who profits from "Human Trafficking." As USual!!!! Divinely inspired murderers, child molesters, liars, thieves, and they abdicated to "UNDER GOD" AND "IN GOD WE TRUST." I guess they have to "trust" in something OTHER THAN THEMSELVES. This country has been going to hell since Joe McCarthy and his "moral majority" learned how to say "atheistic communism," in the same fashion they managed to attach "socialist, leftist, liberal democrats."

This is so sickening. I am glad it is almost over for me. There is no way I can wash this horror away, or get the filthy taste from my mouth. If I can manage to go completely blind, it would probably be a blessing. I am an American citizen. I didn't do enough to stop this distortion of right and wrong because I didn't want to be arrested for being a religious bigot. It isn't a time for the "let go and let Jesus" crowd. and it isn't time for "let my people go." It's time for "get your filthy, stinking hands off the concept of "GOD,," or Nuremberg is comin' right at ya. If there IS a GOD who hasn't committed deicide (yes, I think I just made that word up!) somebody with real power is going to take care of these ersatz "Christians." They're going to be raptured DOWN.
