An ad for foster parents for illegal immigrant children in California promises $6,054 per month for those who sign up and successfully complete the 45-day approval process. The migrant children ad appeared in a Penny Saver in Murrieta. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, hundreds of protesters stopped busloads of illegal aliens from being transported into the town for holding and ultimate release.
The foster immigrant children ad was placed by the Crittenton Services and Foster Family Agency – FFA. The Murrieta Penny Saver notice said the agency was looking for families to provide homes for both American foster children and "unaccompanied refugee minors."
The Orange County foster family organization provides services for the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services.
When Benswann.com contacted the FFA journalists learned:
"Those willing to a take in a child under the age of 16 can receive up to $854.00 tax free per month. For those taking in a child over 16, the total is $1,008.00 per month in reimbursement. If you have a 5 bedroom house and can take in as many as 6 children, you can receive reimbursement of up to $6,054.00 per month tax free."
When asked about the requirements for foster parents, a Crittenton Services and Foster Family Agency staffer said a background check and the passage of four classes is mandatory. The next scheduled round of classes was slated to begin this week. Who is footing the bill for the illegal immigrant children's foster parents? The American taxpayer, according to the social services representative.
Reimbursement for the monthly payments is reportedly provided by multiple state and local grants for American children, but in the case of the "unaccompanied refugee minors," the entire cost is paid by the federal government. Regardless of the government program or grant used to pay the expense, all funds stem from taxpayer dollars.
The illegal immigrant foster parents ad garnered national attention after Murrieta resident Lisa Maloney Vinton gave a copy of the Penny Saver to Brietbart Texas. The ad was asking for "loving, compassionate parents to provide a loving home" for illegal immigrant minors, one local resident who picked up a copy of the paper said. An excerpt from the ad said, "Help heal the wounds for children in foster care programs including survivors of human trafficking and unaccompanied refugee minors."
Cindy Lemos, another Murrieta resident, said that when she called the Crittenton Services and Foster Family Agency to inquire further about the ad, she was told that none of the illegal immigrant children were under the age of 12. Lemos further contends that when she asked the male staffer where all the younger children were being placed, he said that he was "wondering the exact same thing."
