• Federal Judge in Texas Fines CPS $50K a Day for "Shameful" Foster Care: CPS has "Lied to me at almost Every Level"

    A federal judge in Texas appears to be getting fed up with Texas government officials who are delaying in abolishing the State's foster care and child protective services agency and establishing a new one. This week she started fining the state $50,000.00 a day for not implementing the reforms she ordered back in 2015 when she ruled that the Texas foster care system was unconstitutional. In her original ruling, Judge Jack wrote: "Texas’s PMC (Permanent Managing Conservatorship) children have been shuttled throughout a system where rape, abuse, psychotropic medication, and instability are the norm." Rather than comply with her ruling, however, the State of Texas wasted taxpayer funds in fighting against the injunction. Now, Judge Jack is apparently tired of waiting, and has announced fines of $50,000.00 a day which will double in the near future if the State does not comply with her orders. Earlier this week she said that she no longer finds the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services "credible" and that the state has "lied to me at almost every level." During the hearing, Jack scolded officials with DFPS who testified because they could not answer questions concerning the conditions in placements for foster care children.

    AFTER reading this I called the Honorable Judge Jack's chamber to leave a heartfelt message of gratitude!! Children placed in foster care sare seperated from siblings and bio parents are subject to BIG Federal CAPTA $ for years and are abused, drugged in "dhhs" system. when states could use their funds to stabilize and assist families in crisis. Finally a person in power is cherishing God's children and the people who bring them into their loving homes. Majority of Dhhs's "CHILD CARING INSTITUTIONS are not skilled and lack basic care for such vulnerable young children their rate of pay per child ranges from 200 to 600 per day per child. If someone dug deeper..I bet the care facility is owned and operated by dhhs family members! Ridiculous...on the backs of the innocent children. At a federal level our nations children need a national movement to protect.

    Thank you so much for making evil conform..it's all about the money vs true care..destroying lives throughout every state in our nation. Accountability on such corruption and abuse is DEMANDED.

    PRAISE GOD

    Well, it sounds like Judge Jack is at least *trying* to do the right thing, thank God. I am very glad for this. A recent Medical Kidnap report revealed that close to 100 % of physicians who are "child abuse specialists" are women! This made me ashamed to be an XX! I do hope and pray that Judge Jack's heart is in the right place!
    I pray we had a judge like Jack's here in
    California.

    Foster system is so broke I'm a Foster resort parent as my mom and sister is also.

    Here in San Bernardino they play dirty and heartless.

    I will be bless to talk to you Judge Jack's. My mom had 2 little girls for 3 years I was to believe to be adopting them one Day County worker just calls out of the blue that she will be picking up girls in 4 days she said girls will be placed in a adopted home now they're going to Foster home to Foster home we are fighting so hard to get girls back. Court dates ,court appeals thery are damaging those little girls why because its a money making profit for agencies. Everything that county workers want them to do including false allegations, holding License without giving any explanations but yet license agencies have no clue and no referrals and we still have our license and home open go figure . So much to this nightmare.

    I would like to ask you about when my kids were taken from me by the CPS Office in Wichita falls,Texas back in 1994. I went through all the children classes i needed to get them back.After i got them back i was told i could not be with my ex anymore.He moved out and i was with my children.My landlord at the time hired my ex to fix the fence in the back yard.I did not know he was there till my daughter came into the living room and told me he was in the backyard.Next i know the CPS came to my door and told me i would never see my kids again and they were taken yet again.I went back to court and i could not afford a attorney to help me get my children back,I know it has been a long time but i would really like to know if i can get them back for this.My name at the time was Janie Johnston.I know when they first took them they said it was because of fecal matter on the floor but it was not it was carpet backing but no one wanted to listen to me.I am 56 years old know and just want to know if i was wronged for the way they took them from me.The CPS worker when they came to my door threw some papers in my face and told me "You will never see these kids again".I have a part of me missing and just do not know what to do to even see them.I am in stage 3 kidney disease and it is progressing.Just to have them see me before something happens would be great.Thank you for reading this.If nothing can be done i understand.

    This reminds me of the a*s chewing that a Judge gave Betsy DeVos last week when she threatened Jail time,and imposed a $100,000 Fine for ignoring her Court Order .

    the lingo stating that children will be in group settings is very very concerning. This is lingo for institutionalization and would violate a child’s right to live in the least restrictive environment. Not to mention being raised in such a setting would be very detrimental. The system needs an overhaul but reverting back to a model that has proven to be harmful is not the answer.

    Judge Jack is addressing the conditions and lack of safety for children that are currently in group foster homes in Texas.
