Welcome To America

IF you've ever wondered what would happen to your children if you got sick while traveling in the US, wonder no more. Yvonne Bray has done that research for you.

Yvonne Bray, took her daughters Gemma, 15, and Katie, 13, to New York shortly after Christmas for a shopping trip but was taken into hospital when she fell ill with pneumonia during their visit. The girls were then told they could not wait at the hospital and as minors would have to be taken into care.

Sounds reasonable.

Social workers took them to a municipal orphanage in downtown Manhattan, where they were separated, strip-searched and questioned before being kept under lock and key for the next 30 hours.


The two sisters were made to shower in front of security staff and told to fill out a two-page form with questions including: "Have you ever been the victim of rape?" and "Do you have homicidal tendencies?"


Since returning home, Bray has received a letter from the US Administration for Children and Families, notifying her that, because the children were admitted to the orphanage, she is now "under investigation."

Just fucking beautiful.
