The state says it created the new staff classification – unlicensed child protection specialist – in an effort to recruit more child protection specialists, noting that last month there were almost 80 open positions in the state. Applicants aren’t required to be licensed social workers, but must have a bachelor’s degree in a related field.

Congressional panel OKs measure that allows adoption agencies to discriminate same-sex couples prompts outcry from Illinois lawmaker

Note: they call it discrimination.  I call it picking and choosing and setting standards on who they want to sell your children to.

They’re calling it the #LicensetoDiscriminate Amendment, but even that language isn’t strong enough for some Illinois lawmakers.

Separating children from their parents at the border



This is what has been going on at the border over the last week.  This is what I've collected split up into the topics that I see being presented.  There have been hundreds of links all saying the same thing from different sources, and I am working with what they've given me. 

Why are they doing this?


Who are the families at the border?


Do they even know who the parents are?

All Hail The Whistleblowers: George Dudney Tells His Story On The Trafficking Of Tiny Humans In Foster Care

Instead of listening to media-backed NGOs and their chosen "Elected Ones" who are notorious for highjacking any narrative in dealing with children being separated from parents, distorting it or following those who are into making jest of the tortures of children of "The Poors" (always said with clinched teeth) through their 15 minutes of social media fame, disturbingly reducing the horrors of child welfare into some sensationally manipulated platform, meme or hashtag, just to get Patreon contributors, a vote in an election, or any other forms of questionable intrinsic rewards, why not listen to the children?
