Rubbing salt in a family’s wounds

In yesterday's post to this Blog, I noted that even though they settled a class action lawsuit against the child welfare system in Mississippi, the group that so arrogantly calls itself Children's Rights has made no public comment on the fact that Mississippi confiscated at birth a child from a loving mother at birth just because the mother, Cirila Baltazar Cruz, can't speak English.

Now they've added a little insult to the family's injury. No, they're still not talking about the case. But their latest newsletter brags about how well things are going in Mississippi, under the headline "Strong Leaders in Place to Carry Out Mississippi Child Welfare Reforms."

I'm sure that Ms. Cruz will be delighted to hear it.

Tomorrow: The problem they haven't fixed in Florida.
