Little Girl Faces Deportation Because Her Mom Is Unfit
Salem, Oregon ( CNN ) - In Oregon there's public backlash over a 6-year old girl who the state wants to send to Mexico to live with her convicted felon dad.
The child's mother was declared an unfit parent due to a meth addiction.
The girl, a US citizen, currently lives with her grandmother, but the courts say she needs to be reunited with her estranged father.
I understand that the public has a lot of interest in this case and I also want to assure the public that the decision makers in this case, ultimately the court, had all of the information in front of them in order to make a best interest determination
The public is not the only one taking an interest in this case.
Oregon governor John Kitzhaber has asked for the case to be reviewed.
