HEARTBREAKING: Six-year-old girl forcibly removed from white foster parents for being a fraction Native American 

StaffRebel Columnist

The Indian Child Welfare Act has caused a six-year-old girl to be taken from her foster family.

Created in 1978, the law states that “Indian children must be raised by Native Americans”. The girl is just one-and-a-half percent Choctaw Native American.

According to The Blaze, Lexi’s foster parents, Summer and Rusty Page of Santa Clarita, California were trying to adopt the young girl for over two years.

However, the Indian Child Welfare Act caused authorities to seize the child, with plans to place her with relatives in Utah.

The incident was caught on video.

“Our hearts are broken and we are trying to make sense of everything that has happened with our three other children who witnessed their sister Lexi forcefully ripped away from our family by strangers,” the Page family said in a statement.

“But nobody could possibly be more devastated than our 6-year-old daughter who found herself restrained in a car and driven away to go and live in a foreign place hundreds of miles from her family, friends, teachers, home and life.”

A petition has been created to reunite Lexi with her foster family. It has over 58,000 signatures since the time of this posting.

The Pages say they will fight to bring Lexi back home.

My personal opinion:
I don’t think the government understands the importance of a family bond, whether it is biological or not. This law only proves just how cruel and heartless society is. The attorney claimed that they were “relieved” that Lexi could finally be reunited with her extended family, but do they realize just what they have destroyed? How many hearts they broke? This news left me in tears. I don’t want to live in a world like this!

Does anyone remember when PM Chretien and his wife were given an Indian boy? They later gave him back. I wonder how his life turned out, after that slap in the face.

Canadian Mongrel something similar happened to some friends of ours back in the 70’s , they lost one of their foster kids that they loved because the mother wanted him back all of a sudden. I was just a small kid , but once i got older , i always wondered if it was because of our friends only the wife was a native? My Baba knitted him a poncho that he wore all the time so much that everyone called him Poncho. They were pretty devastated.

A Zen master was once falsely accused of the paternity of a boy…

His mother said “THE BOY IS YOURS

The Zen master said…..“oh…..really?” But he raised the boy into his teens…then the mother returned..

The mother said “THE BOY IS NOT YOURS

The Zen master said …“oh…….really?” But he returned the boy to his mother.

Progressive racism at work. This poor child in all likely hood will suffer greatly as a result of ignorance perpetuated by unaccountable bureaucrats. Should this child come to harm you can bet the unaccountable will not be held to account of their failed policy.

Progressive wing nuts are ruining lives.

I was peripherally involved one time with a situation through Alberta Children’s Welfare where a native girl was removed from a foster home where she felt happy and safe, to be placed back in her Nation where she had been abused. Reason, though the foster home was Indian it was not the same Nation as hers.

Yep! The logic of the regressive left always astounds.

Progressive dogma creates unnumbered casualties.

I want better treatment for all aboriginals among others (including those of mixed decent) and as such, I believe this is highly unethical to rip this girl from her family for reasons like this.
