Consulate General of Mexico and N.C. DHHS Reach “Agreement for Protection of Minors “

wallYes, you read that right.  The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services is apparently conducting foreign policy:

On March 25, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services’ Division of Social Services (DSS) and the Consulate General of Mexico in Raleigh signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) that protects Mexican minors in the event they have been separated from their parents or guardians.

“We could not be more pleased to work with the Mexican Consulate,” said Wayne Black, Director, N.C. DSS. “This agreement will ensure the best possible protection for Mexican minors in North Carolina.”

While the Mexican Government has signed MoAs in 27 states, the agreement with DSS comes with a more comprehensive scope, establishing mutual cooperation between the Consulate General and DSS to locate family members, provide evidence and documentation, accessibility of services of both government agencies, joint participation in Community Outreach activities and reuniting minors with their families in Mexico when appropriate.wait

Wait. North Carolina Government services for Mexican citizens? 

“This MoA is of the utmost importance,” said Javier Díaz de León, Consul General. “With it, we are aiming to further cooperate with the N.C. Government to reduce cases in which Mexican minors and their parents are separated.”

If this is about shipping illegal minors back to their families in Mexico, this would be a good thing. But, I don’t think that’s where this is headed.

The MoA also provides a method of early identification for Mexican minors and their families, to ensure protections afforded by international conventions, the Bilateral Convention and any other applicable treaties and laws.crowd

Both the N.C. DSS and the Mexican Consulate are committed to the development and delivery of joint community meetings and other information sharing efforts, to support in the protection and wellbeing of Mexican families and minors

Yes, ladies and gentlemen. It is a brave, new world …

  1. I am confused. I thought Republicans won the last elections in North Carolina. Republican policy as set out in the platforms of both the state and national GOP is opposed to illegal immigration. This agreement seems to facilitate illegal immigration and coddle illegal aliens. Is the NCDHHS stuffed with Obama Republicans? If so, what is the governor going to do about it?

    Brant, could you put up a link to this MoA so we can see if it is as awful as it sounds?

  2. Tax payers will be paying for all the Illegal services. Since the state budget will be increased with NC citizens money. Bad for NC Taxpayers

  3. The Republican Party is reduced to a lurching character out of central casting for ” Night of the Walking Dead “. What remains is a joint Republican-Democrat Ruling Party in Washington, with Raleigh in close pursuit.

    Old Infantry axiom …’ Never reinforce failure.’

    We need a Grand New Party. Maybe someone with some honor and character will make that proposal tonight as the Republicans gather to swill chardonnay at the country club and lie to each other, while their Rome burns down around them.

    Who will stand up for America … ?

  4. Maybe it is time to become an expat and move to Mexico. They seem to be sending all their dead wood to the US and keeping their pure bred Castilians in Mexico
