California’s Social Services are asking foster parents to take in ’26 or more’ migrant children per household…
California’s Department of Social Services are asking foster parents if they have 26 or more beds available for unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally. They usually only allow 6 children in a foster home at any one time, but the CCLD is asking each foster family take in over 4 times that amount.
Here is an audio of a voice message and images of emails sent to the parents (Source):
Foster parents Travis and Sharla Kall told Fox News that not only did the CCLD ask them to take in multiple children, they found out that once a child is placed into the foster care system, they can gain citizenship. Unfortunately, Fox News cut them off before they could finish telling us about it.
They mention the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 and the Immigration Act of 1990. Basically a minor who illegally entered the United States who can not be reunited with their parents qualifies for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status. This would adjust their status to that of Lawful Permanent Resident. Once they get their residence card, are over 18 years old, and have been a resident for more than five years, they can then apply to become a U.S citizen. These children would not be able to petition their biological parents for citizenship, but they can sponsor their siblings.
The American Bar Association says:
The most common path to LPR [Legal Permanent Resident] status for undocumented foster children is to obtain Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (“SIJS”). The SIJS law permits eligible foster children to “self-petition” for a visa. One benefit afforded SIJS petitioners is the ability to “adjust status,” or obtain permanent resident status without returning to the home country for an interview at the U.S. consulate. An SIJS-eligible child can apply concurrently to adjust status and obtain permanent resident status, and a number of the inadmissibility grounds are waived for SIJS applicants.
A lawful permanent resident (LPR) can work legally, qualify for some government benefits and, barring commission of a serious criminal offense, cannot be removed (deported) from the U.S… If a youth has been a permanent resident for at least five years and is approaching age 18, it’s important to assess and discuss the option of obtaining U.S. citizenship by applying for naturalization.
CBP reported that they are detaining on average more than 600 unaccompanied migrant children who cross the US-Mexico border each day. So how many of these children are the CCLD trying to place into these foster homes?
