A foster family in Kirkland, Washington has been ordered to move out of their home by the organization that sponsors them in order to allow for illegal alien children to live in the house instead, according to Breitbart.
The couple in question, Edmundo Sanchez and his wife Paual, received a letter from the non-profit foster organization Friends of Youth in February, which said that the group had “reviewed our organizational goals this past year, and we have chosen to pursue a different strategic vision.” The letter then said that the couple, who have hosted over 20 foster children over the course of the last seven years, would have to move out of their house in order to “provide a different scope of services in support of unaccompanied youth.”
Friends of Youth Chief Program Officer DeAnn Adams told a local news outlet that the organization saw a chance for increased revenue by cooperating with the federal government’s Office of Refugee Resettlement, and thus decided to use the Kirkland house as one of several that would now be taking in exclusively illegal alien children.
Sanchez said that the eviction has already caused problems for himself, his wife, and the children they are currently fostering, as they are already dealing with one child who suffers from panic attacks, and are still actively searching for another child who ran away recently. Sanchez described the organization’s decision as “senseless” and “irresponsible.”
Washington State Representative Michelle Caldier (R-Wash.), who is herself a foster parent and was a foster child in her youth, condemned the organization in a statement, asking “why on earth are they allowing this to happen to our most vulnerable youth? It’s wrong.” Caldier went on to say that “there’s a reason as to why they are choosing to go with the unaccompanied minors and change their program. They tend to chase the dollars.”
