Texas CPS Abused Children, Mental Health Workers Say

Texas's Child Protective Services (CPS), which the state supreme court ruled acted illegally in seizing more than 400 children, repeatedly abused children, according to mental health workers that CPS itself invited to observe the children.  For example, “A baby was left in a stroller without food and water for 24 hours and ended up in the hospital."  “Women were constantly lied to about where their children [were] and when they could see their lawyers and about when they would be reunited with their children.”   “The children arrived healthy and happy and left sick and crying.”  Others have also alleged child abuse by the Texas CPS.
