Missouri Court Denies Illegal Immigrant An English Translator Then Takes Away Her Biological Son

A shocking ABC News piece says a Missouri court has stripped an illegal immigrant from Guatemala of parental rights to her biological son, ruling in favor of the boy’s American adoptive parents. What’s even more shocking about this seemingly cruel Missouri court decision is that the Guatemalan mother, Encarnacion Bail Romero, who does not speak English, was denied an English translator throughout the court proceedings that resulted in her losing her biological son to the American adoptive parents. Encarnacion Bail Romero told ABC News, “Nobody could help me because I don’t speak English.” The Missouri court also stripped Romero of visitation rights to her biological son–a total travesty of justice.

According to the ABC News piece the only offense this Guatemalan mom seems to have committed is coming to the U.S. illegally. She was apparently arrested after an immigration raid at a chicken processing plant where she worked. So this was clearly someone who came to the the U.S. to work and provide a better future for her young son. After her arrest, her then 11 months old son was adopted by American parents Seth and Melinda Moser and stayed with them for the entire duration of her incarceration (5 years).

Bottom line, reasonable people will disagree as to whether coming to the U.S. illegally is sufficient cause for someone to lose custody of their Biological child. All reasonable people will agree however that it is a serious miscarriage of justice for a court to take away the parental rights of a non-English speaking illegal immigrant without even according them a translator. This is wrong and immoral!!

Sen McCaskill Slams GOP Over Their Hypocrisy On Deficits


In their last televised debate before the November elections, Senator Claire McCaskill(D-MO) and her GOP challenger Josh Hawley sparred over a whole host of issues most notably, the all important healthcare fight. In what should be the closing argument for any Democrat running for office this November, Sen McCaskill laid it out perfectly; “The Republican party loves to talk about debt and deficit until they are in charge and then its crickets, its absolutely crickets. So yes we vow to look at all of it. No cuts to social security, no cuts to medicare. As I said, Josh Hawley is proposing cuts to medicare..”




Good news for Democrats is the people of Missouri think Sen McCaskill won the debate. Hopefully this translates into votes.

Bottom line voters in Missouri need to come out in large numbers and send the beloved Dem senator back where she belongs–in the U.S. Senate batting away for the working poor. Simply put, a vote for GOP’s Josh Hawley is a vote to gut medicare, medicaid and social security so as to address the deficits caused by GOP’s tax cuts for the rich.
