Therapeutic Foster Parents Evicted in Renton, WA, to House Migrants

 

To make their rented home available, therapeutic foster parents were evicted to house Illegal Migrant Children.  Now, there is an eviction moratorium for people “affected by the Wuhan Coronavirus.” No mention of that moratorium applying to this Hispanic couple who have raised many foster children with special needs. And despite the fact that up to 10% of those Illegal Migrant Children test positive for said Wuhan Coronavirus.

The house is owned by the Friends of Youth, a nonprofit in the Seattle area that serves young people. This eviction is wrong in so many ways, including the fact that the family has already had one of its foster kids run away from home due to the eviction notice that was received in January. The kids the couple are fostering already have many strikes against them, and this will make things much worse.  The real estate market in the Seattle area is very hot, with prices and rents skyrocketing, so the parents will have a very hard time finding new lodging that will be suitable for their family.

The Biden administration is presiding over the most destructive policies of any US president. Ever. His open-borders policy is destructive of the fabric of America, and is knowingly inviting into our country people who are poor, unskilled, and possibly infected with the deadly Wuhan Coronavirus. So, instead of “saving lives” like they always boast of, their policy is costing lives, not only of the Illegal Migrants, but of American Citizens who are already suffering from government lockdowns, closed schools, and mandates. The Left is Evil.

    I saw this on KOMO news last night and was absolutely astounded. The world has really gone mad. Also revealed on FOX was the news that migrant children in California will get in-person learning while American kids are not in school yet.

    If there is a “fourth wave” of virus infections, this will be the reason why.  And the Health Nazis will not mention the cause, just institute more stringent regulations.

    Well, normally I’d say that anyone can give anyone an eviction notice, and it’s by going to court that a moratorium can be enforced.  But considering this is WA and especially the Seattle area, I wouldn’t be surprised if a Seattle-area judge somehow “finds” that these people were not affected by corona.

    I read both the National Review story linked in the OP, and the local story linked by National Review.  I’m still not completely sure that I understand the situation.

    Did the foster parents being evicted fail to pay the rent?  That’s a reasonable basis for eviction.  The stories don’t precisely say, though the impression that I get is that they were not paying rent.

    So were the foster parents being evicted get to live in a house, rent-free, for 7 years?  This is my impression, but I’m uncertain.  If this is correct, then these folks — who seem like fine folks — were the beneficiaries of a nonprofit that provided them with free housing, in support of their foster parenting.  But it seems to me that if the nonprofit wants to use its property for a different purpose, that’s the nonprofit’s business.

    It does look like a sad story, but I find the sense of outrage to be misplaced.

    From what I read, the owner is a non-profit, and it told the foster parents to evacuate the foster kids they have, and to replace them with foster illegal minors from the surge, because there is more federal money for illegals than there was state money for our own foster kids. If accurate, this is a despicable action by a greedy non-profit.

    I don’t read the NR article the same way, so I think that you are incorrect factually.  The NR article reports that the foster parents were told “to vacate their home.”  So I don’t think that one set of (illegal alien) foster kids was replacing another set of (presumably American) foster kids.

    I strongly object to your characterization of the nonprofit — “despicable” and “greedy.”  If your hypothesis is correct — that the nonprofit can make more money from the feds by using the house for illegal alien kids than it can make from the state by using the house for (presumably American) foster kids — then the problem seems, to me, to be with the policy of the federal government.

    But can’t that policy be evil, and thus deserving of opposition and not taking-advantage-of?

    I am shocked too. It still appalls me to my core,  even though I have known for years that the UN Commission on Migration made it very clear that the over riding principle that all enlightened governmental officials must take to is the  “Greening the Planet” which involves some 350 million economic, war and climate crisis persons needing to being given asylum in Europe, The UK, Australia, Canada and The USA.

    This Commission on Migration, in lockstep with our “elected” Dem governors and Congress critters never mention any need for additional housing being built. The fact that relief measure after relief measure has been brought forward for newly arrived immigrants, or for people of color, while excluding actual citizens and all whites, certainly demonstrates what is at hand.

    The family that fostered the children and now  faces eviction is an established hispanic family. They are to be treated like whites, in this and other situations.

    You are correct, I misread another source, and thought only the foster kids were turned out, but you are right, the parents were, too. I still think the non-profit unnecessarily disrupted a functioning foster home and brought yet more instability into the kids’ lives, all for the sake of the dollar, and deserves criticism.

    Thank you for bringing forth this discussion. People here, especially those who do not live in a blue region of the country do not understand how bad things are.

    I had to sue the County of Marin for denying me AFDC and food stamps back in 1988. The entire application process for people coming into the Health and Human Services program was run by hispanics. I was running a 103 degree temp and had been sick off and on for five weeks. My doctor demanded  my  getting help from the County, as I had been too ill  to work.

    The worker who met with me told me it would not be possible for me to have an overall, thorough interview until the end of the month. (I applied on the sixth.)  She set my interview up for the 29th. If I “passed” the interview, then I would be eligible only for pro-rated benefits based on the remaining two days of the month.

    Meanwhile the worker next to me processed her cousin, a lady from south of the border. The cousin told me in the elevator going down to the lobby that she had come to the USA three days before. She also told me that her “emergency status” gave her food stamps and AFDC for her and her three kids, and  a housing voucher, all effective per that date. (This meant she received close to 2500 bucks worth of benefits, even though she never even presented an ID and certainly was not a citizen.)

    When the judge who heard the case heard my description of how I was treated, including the jokes the worker had made at my expense, like her having another worker come over to  tell me “You aren’t sick – you are lazy” and how the newly arrived cousin received almost full bennies for that month, she hit the ceiling.

    People have no idea how friendly all the systems are set up for newly arrived  hispanics. For instance: Years later, when I was well set up, I attempted to be a foster parent, but the agency head handling the matter was a hispanic. The roadblocks were so insurmountable as he set them up, that I never got through the application process.

    My heavy heart did not feel much better when during that time, I heard of a lost 12 year old down in San Jose. His foster mom, a Spanish only speaking person, forgot he was left at a shopping mall. That forgetfulness might have had something to do with her having 9 other foster kids in her care. Eight of those foster kids were Spanish speaking only, while the child who got lost spoke English.

    Welcome to America!
