Families Severed by Child Protective Services

El Mensajero, Posted: Jul 17, 2008

SAN JOSE, Calif. Sixty percent of children placed in foster care in the South Bay are Hispanic, reports San Francisco Spanish-language newspaper El Mensajero. As a result, many Latino families in the area report being more afraid of Child Protective Services (CPS) than any other organization, except immigration authorities, in its ability to separate loved ones and wreak havoc in their lives. After more than six years observing the separation of children from parents due to what he describes as racial targeting, La Raza Roundtable President Victor Garza is forging an organized attempt to intervene. His organization works closely with the Latino Social Workers Network to limit the unjust separation of children from their parents or siblings by holding audiences with affected families and by speaking in their defense in court.
