Chinese Babies Sold for Adoption and Become Involuntary Immigrants

Another article documents how we become involuntary immigrants.

And how international adoption is child trafficking.

How a Broke Chinese Province Sold Kidnapped Babies to America for Adoption

And Obama said a lot of nothing about reforming the immigration non-system.

So, a stolen and sold baby from China could be deported back to China and, if she finds any relatives, she cannot sponsor them for an immigration visa.

Immigrant adoptees rally on May 1

Or they should have...

This past weekend the adult adoptee-run organization Also-Known-As celebrated it's 15-year anniversary. The main events were on Saturday April 30. The next day, of course, was May 1, also known as International Worker's Day. Thousands of people rallied in Union Square, marched to Foley Square, and demanded rights and reform for immigrants and union workers. But, there were no adoptees representing ourselves as immigrants and adoptees. What a missed opportunity! Here were 150 adoptees, all immigrants, already organized, and no one thought about organizing us into a contingent for the rallies.

Well, there's always next year, I suppose. Because, unfortunately, I don't think that the fight will be won by then. What do you think adoptees and allies? Will you join the fight on May 1, 2012?
