UPDATE: Foster care in South Dakota: Members of Congress investigate NPR’s revelations

            Rep Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Dan Boren (D-Okla.), the ranking minority members of the House of Representatives committee and subcommittee with jurisdiction over Indian affairs, have launched an investigation of the revelations in NPR’s brilliant three-part series about what child protective services in the State of South Dakota is doing to Native American families.

            That’s another good step in the right direction, coming as it does after the announcement from the South Dakota ACLU.
