Last week, I spoke to a grandmother (in a cage) who the government had deemed "ineligible" to stay with her grandchild because she was not his mother.

The boy was shipped off to foster care and in 6 months, can be put up for adoption in Texas.

That’s what “ineligible” means. https://t.co/DkofFDKtNn
