Mistreating Native American Children
Liberal social policy at work.
Aug 20, 2012, Vol. 17, No. 45 • By ETHAN EPSTEIN
The Capobiancos have argued that their case represents a “misuse” of the Indian Child Welfare Act. But they’re wrong. Because Veronica does indeed have “a drop of Cherokee blood,” it was perfectly legal for her to be ripped from her family. Only when this law is repealed will the welfare of children like her be protected.
