Notice that the news link to this case is from Taiwan--not the U.S. Interesting, eh? After hearing fathers like MARK GOLDMAN dominate the airwaves, it's quite a contrast to see how a U.S. mother is treated and ignored.
Court rejects case of US baby sent to Mexico
2011-01-10 10:14 PM
The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected an appeal from a Texas woman who wants to sue the federal government for sending her U.S. citizen baby to Mexico with the child's illegal immigrant father.
Monica Castro's daughter was a day from her first birthday when federal agents deported the father to Mexico and sent her with him. Three years would pass before Castro and the girl, both U.S. citizens who were born in Texas, were reunited.
Castro sued the federal government over the actions of the Border Patrol agents who refused to take the girl from her father and knowingly sent a U.S. citizen to Mexico. But a divided federal appeals court blocked the lawsuit.
The Supreme Court did not comment Monday in turning down Castro's appeal.
