Only 26? ‘C’mon, man!‘
California Foster Parents Being Asked to Take in “26 or more” Migrant Children from the Border – “I Consider it Human Trafficking”
By Brian Shilhavy, Editor, Health Impact News
The mass sex trafficking of children into the United States is now happening in the open in full view of the public, and no one seems to have the will or power to step in and stop it.
One has to wonder if the United States has now become the most morally degenerate country on the face of the earth?
Yesterday, the Daily Mail interviewed California foster parents Travis and Sharla Kall, and they said that the Community Care Licensing Division (CCLD) of California’s Department of Social Services that oversees foster home and care licensing, had asked them to take in “26 or more” children being housed at the U.S. Mexican border, where tens of thousands of migrant children who came across the border without their parents are being held.
The Kalls also stated that other foster care parents in the state received the same request.
California foster parents are being asked to care for a staggering 26 or more unaccompanied migrant children per household, DailyMail.com can reveal.
On March 12, foster parents Travis, 45, and Sharla Kall received a voicemail amid the crisis at the Mexico border.
‘This is an emergency message, please respond to this urgent message from the Community Care Licensing Division (CCLD),’ the voicemail obtained by DailyMail.com said. ‘CCLD would like to know how many available beds you have to serve additional youth.’
CCLD is a division of California’s Department of Social Services that oversees foster home and care licensing.
The couple received an email with the same urgent message, containing links for them to communicate how many available beds they have – ranging from zero to ’26 +.’
‘Usually the maximum amount of children you are allowed to foster at any one time is six,’ said Travis, who currently fosters two four-month-old twins with his wife, while also caring for their biological twins, aged six.
‘We called our case worker and she told us that everyone was calling her because they had got that same call,’ said the small automotive business owner from Orange, California.
‘She said there was a big influx of children coming in, but she didn’t know where from,’ he added.
The couple reached out to a friend who is fostering through a different agency and were told that she had received the same call. The friend also told them her agency confirmed via email that the children were coming from the border.
‘As many of you are already aware, CCLD has been sending automated emails and phone calls asking you about available beds to serve additional youth,’ the email read.
‘They are trying to address the needs of a record number of unaccompanied children who are arriving from Central America who are escaping impossible situations such as poverty, violence and natural disasters,’ it adds.
The couple were shocked that the request was being made.
‘At any given point in time there are 30,000 plus children in the L.A. County foster care system alone,’ Sharla said.
‘So to ask us already certified foster parents to take on children from another country when we can barely take care of our own foster crisis doesn’t seem beneficial to either side because either way someone loses a bed,’ she added.
Travis, who along with his wife runs a non-profit fighting against human trafficking, believes this is just the tip of a sinister iceberg.
‘I consider it human trafficking,’ he said. ‘It’s not the burden of taking kids in because we have the heart for it, but these are kids that were taken from the border for a money scheme and now they’re going to use us resource parents to take care of them.’
