Foster Parents Lose Children Over Political Beliefs

A loving foster family in England had their children removed because they were members of the UK Independence Party (it opposes the European Union and advocates for stricter enforcement of immigration laws).  A social worker told them that their views on immigration made them "unsuitable."  The couple had been fostering children for almost seven years.

I hope the agency backs down on this one.
