ACLU Comment on Trump Executive Order on Foster Care
WASHINGTON — President Trump today signed an executive order related to the child welfare system. The order authorizes funding for the Department of Health and Human Services and encourages state governments to develop partnerships with faith-based agencies.
The Supreme Court will hear arguments on a related issue this fall in a case involving a Philadelphia foster care agency. The case was brought by Catholic Social Services, which objects to working with same-sex couples. The American Civil Liberties Union is counsel in the case, Fulton v. City of Philadelphia.
