California foster parents are being asked to care for a staggering 26 or more unaccompanied migrant children per household, DailyMail.com can reveal.
On March 12, foster parents Travis, 45, and Sharla Kall received a voicemail amid the crisis at the Mexico border.
‘This is an emergency message, please respond to this urgent message from the Community Care Licensing Division (CCLD),’ the voicemail obtained by DailyMail.com said. ‘CCLD would like to know how many available beds you have to serve additional youth.’
CCLD is a division of California’s Department of Social Services that oversees foster home and care licensing.
The couple received an email with the same urgent message, containing links for them to communicate how many available beds they have – ranging from zero to ’26 +.’
