Feds Say 1,475 Migrant Children Placed in Homes Are Missing | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
Federal officials lost track of nearly 1,500 migrant children after they placed minors in the homes of adult sponsors across the country
Community Village Sites's insight:

"From October to December 2017, HHS called 7,635 children the agency had placed with sponsors, and found 6,075 of the children were still living with their sponsors, 28 had run away, five had been deported and 52 were living with someone else. The rest were missing, said Steven Wagner, acting assistant secretary at HHS."

U.S. is failing to protect children. Horrible.

Women’s Rights Attorney Gloria Allred on Suing Donald Trump over Sexual Assault: “Truth Matters”

Women’s Rights Attorney Gloria Allred on Suing Donald Trump over Sexual Assault: “Truth Matters” | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
We are broadcasting from the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, which has been surging with energy from the #MeToo and #TimesUp movement. It was at Sundance two decades ago that movie mogul Harvey Weinstein allegedly assaulted actress Rose McGowan. McGowan told The New York Times in October that Weinstein offered her $1 million in a hush money payment if she signed a nondisclosure agreement to not come forward with her charges that he raped her in a hotel room during the 1997 festival. We speak with longtime women’s rights attorney Gloria Allred, who represents one of the women who have accused President Trump of sexual assault, and feature an excerpt from a new documentary on her life and path-breaking legal career, called “Seeing Allred.”
