Federal VS State: Follow the Money

Many people are confused by just who has the ability to change the laws.  One reader wrote in:

My US Senator just emailed me. She said that CPS is a state agency and she has nothing to do with them. She ignores the fact that US Legislators passed Social Security Title IV, which in part, pays CPS to remove a child, even if there is no evidence of abuse or neglect. She also ignores the fact that Title IV also rewards each state that has a certain number of adoptions above the quota.

How do those states get enough children to adopt above the quota? They take them.

She also ignores studies, by agencies within Health and Human Services, a federal agency. The studies prove that more children are abused, neglected, raped and murdered in CPS “protection,” than are those left at home with their parents. Also, studies have shown that over time, children left at home fare better emotionally and psychologically, than those removed and placed in the system.

Maura Corrigan bragged about receiving a large adoption bonus from the State of Michigan. She also stated that Michigan returns 50.1% of children removed from the home. I find it hard to believe that 49.9% of parents are that bad that they can’t or won’t do what CPS requires for their return. What actually happens is that when a parent fulfills a requirement, CPS adds more requirements. Then CPS delays setting up a parenting plan, then tells the court the parent has not met deadlines; deadlines that were never established. Or, CPS brainwashes the children into believing their parents never wanted them.

CPS kidnapping is both a state and federal issue. We have to enforce current laws that CPS ignores. We have to change unjust laws that protect corrupt CPS workers, police and courts. We have to change laws that allow people to falsify CPS complaints and get away with it, while the family is destroyed.

This is a common misconception.  Your congressman was right.  The Senate doesn’t have much to do with HHS or CPS. You need to contact your U. S. House Representative, they approve the funding and hold the purse strings.  The states make policy, legislators make law.

Your senator can call for a hearing and investigate but they rarely do.  If CPS breaks the laws, it is the house who has the power to investigate and change things.

    From this HomePage:
    Each branch of our federal government plays an integral role in the child welfare system, and when even one fails to perform its role in an appropriate manner, children are put at risk of harm. Because all three branches must be performing optimally to ensure a well-functioning child welfare system, this report discusses the performance of each branch in this arena. Specifically, the report:

    provides an overview of the scope and purpose of major child welfare laws as enacted by Congress, and to what extent current laws meet the needs of children;
    examines how the judicial branch has interpreted those laws;
    discusses to what extent the executive branch implements and enforces those laws;
    comments on the potential efficacy of each branch’s scope and reach;
    provides examples of shortcomings in all three branches with regard to their respective roles vis-à-vis the child welfare system;
    discusses issues where the purpose or intent of child welfare laws are being openly violated by some states;
    calls for more robust activity from all three branches — and particularly enforcement by the executive branch charged with enforcing Congressional intent and, when necessary, withholding federal funding or imposing penalties where states are clearly not meeting minimum standards; and
    makes several recommendations for all three branches of federal government, all of which are necessary in order to ensure a well-functioning child welfare system.
