A family in Washington state was forced to vacate their home to make space for housing unaccompanied migrant children.
In February this year, Edmundo Serena Sanchez and his wife were notified to vacate the Renton house where they have nurtured and raised Washington state foster children for nearly seven years. So that illegal aliens could have their house.
“It was just senseless. ‘’Everything they did was irresponsible,” Serena Sanchez said of the move-out order that came after a year of lockdown from the coronavirus pandemic.
In an interview with National Review, Serena Sanchez said the couple was forced to send three of their foster children to other families because they were not able to find a suitable home by the time of their eviction.
The Renton house is part of a campus of facilities owned by the Friends of Youth, a non-profit based in Kirkland with a 70-year history of providing services and housing for homeless and foster youth. The problem is that illegal aliens now have higher priority than American foster kids.
The notice said the house would be used “…to provide a different scope of services in support of unaccompanied youth.”
“Unaccompanied youth” is the federal term for unaccompanied migrant children, and the Biden administration is currently struggling with a major influx of migrant children at the U.S.-Mexico border. The administration projects that over 16,000 children will have crossed the border in March alone, breaking the previous record of 11,475 set in May 2019, according to Axios. The projections indicate that over 20,000 migrant children may cross the border for every month from April through September in 2021.
According to Serena Sanchez, the decision had a devastating impact on the four children in his foster care who will likely be required to move to new foster homes.
He says one child has been to the hospital with panic attacks. A “teenager ran away and has not come back.” Mr. Sanchez is as anxious as any parent.
“I worry very much about him because he’s 16 …17 years old and he doesn’t have a job,” said Serena Sanchez.
He and his wife, Paual, are licensed “therapeutic” foster parents, meaning they are specially training to foster children with severe behavioral problems.
“We choose to do teenagers because they’re really hard to find places for them,” he said.
