The Massachusetts state Department of Children and Families (DCF) is harassing parents whose children are allegedly not participating in virtual learning programs set up due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Em Quiles, a woman working a full-time job, was harassed by the DCF because her 7-year-old son was allegedly not participating in virtual school sessions. She said she asked Heard Street Discovery Academy in Worcester for assistance considering her circumstances, but they refused to do so.
“They didn’t offer any help,” she said.
Then the DCF called her up and accused her of neglect because her 7-year-old was reportedly missing assignments.
“I couldn’t believe it,” Quiles said.
A neglect complaint could result in Quiles having her children kidnapped from her by state agents, all because she lacked the financial means to supervise her child’s virtual education. Other low-income individuals, including minorities, are faced with similar predicaments, the Boston Globe has learned.
“It’s the exact wrong thing that the moment calls for,” said Michael Gregory, managing attorney with the Trauma and Learning Policy Initiative of Massachusetts Advocates for Children and the Harvard Law School.
Gregory noted that schools throughout Massachusetts are not “building bridges and building relationships” with parents undergoing an unprecedented amount of stress and hardship due to the pandemic, but rather are implementing “punitive measures” against them.
“There were so many kids with disabilities, language barriers … who were having trouble engaging in remote learning. You shouldn’t infer anything about a parent, simply because a child’s not showing up on Zoom,” Gregory said.
Dalene Basden, a family support specialist with the Parent/Professional Advocacy League, noted that two parents were reported to the DCF despite the fact that they could not receive alerts through Facebook and e-mail. They could have theoretically had their children kidnapped by state thugs because they could not afford internet access.
Worcester superintendent Maureen Binienda is denying any wrongdoing on behalf of the district and defends sicking state thugs on low-income parents who are having difficulty transitioning to online learning.
“One of our primary responsibilities was to ensure that every child in our district was safe, had access to food, and received appropriate care,” Binienda wrote in an email, adding that Quills story is “wholly and completely inaccurate.”
Quilles noted that DCF quickly determined that she was not a neglectful parent and dropped the complaint.
“They weren’t interested in working with parents,” said Quilles, who runs an organization for Latino empowerment. She is worried that other Latinos, including some who do not speak English, are going to have a much more difficult time fighting against the complaint than herself.
Leon Smith, executive director of Citizens for Juvenile Justice, has noted that schools are not making complaints to DCF “in the suburbs, where kids are blowing off their online schooling.”
“It’s happening in communities of color,” he added.
It seems that systemic racism is coming directly from the public schools, with the COVID-19 pandemic as an excuse to crack down on minority communities. Perhaps funds could be denied at the federal level to these institutions that fuel white privilege.
Texas Attorney General Sues Biden Administration to Stop ‘Unlawful’ Open Border Policies
Ken Paxton is fighting back.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced on Friday that his state is filing a lawsuit to stop President-imposed Joe Biden’s administration’s open border policies that are being enacted at breakneck speed.
“In one of its first of dozens of steps that harm Texas and the nation as a whole, the Biden administration directed DHS to violate federal immigration law and breach an agreement to consult and cooperate with Texas on that law. Our state defends the largest section of the southern border in the nation. Failure to properly enforce the law will directly and immediately endanger our citizens and law enforcement personnel,” said Attorney General Paxton.
“DHS itself has previously acknowledged that such a freeze on deportations will cause concrete injuries to Texas. I am confident that these unlawful and perilous actions cannot stand. The rule of law and security of our citizens must prevail,” he added.
Paxton is accusing the Biden administration of violating the U.S. Constitution by suspending deportations of illegal aliens. He says that this illegal policy shift will hurt Texas citizens by leaving them vulnerable to dangerous third-world migrants more apt to commit violent crimes.
Big League Politics has reported on Biden’s unprecedented push for amnesty, which could mean the final death blow for the U.S. Republic:
President-elect Joe Biden will introduce amnesty legislation for the more than eleven million illegal aliens residing in the United States on the first day of his presidency, according to pro-illegal immigration activists. The legislation will contain a means to provide citizenship to nearly every alien in the country, which they’ll receive through a glorified paperwork process.
It’s expected that the illegals who will qualify for amnesty will be as many as eleven to twenty million, with estimates varying widely over the number of aliens in the United States. Biden has pledged to forego deportation for any alien in the country, with the exception of those convicted of felonies.
If the king-sized amnesty bill fails to get anywhere, Democrats have prepared a more reserved plan to legalize more than 5 million illegals they’re defining as essential workers. Congressional Democrats have varying opinions on the prospects of passing major immigration amnesty legislation, with Biden’s primary focus likely to be placed upon coronavirus relief, a split Senate, and a razor-thin Democratic House majority.
Immigration activists have demanded that nearly every illegal alien in the country be provided United States citizenship within five years, while Kamala Harris reportedly revealed the Biden amnesty plan will require those who flouted the law to wait for eight years.
Biden is likely to sign a glut of executive orders providing leniency to illegal aliens, including an extension of the DACA program that’s been continuously litigated over throughout Donald Trump’s presidency.
Migrant caravans have already begun the journey from Central America to the United States, eager to receive free welfare and citizenship benefits from a incoming President who has promised to make generous concessions to illegal aliens.
Texas is at least one state with a Republican Party that will stand up against the Biden regime. More states need to join them to even have a chance of stopping America’s downfall.
