Laila again struggled for her second child, again a sacrifice, even when the child this time belonged to Rasheed.

The Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) is a federal law that requires government officials to take children of Native American race away from caring foster families and place them with Native American families they (in most cases) have never met before. Now, knowing the terms of this law, imagine the anguish that an American couple-Rusty and Summer Page-experienced when their 6-year-old daughter Lexi, whom they raised in their home ever since taking her in as a foster child four years prior, was taken away and sent from her loving home in Santa Clarita, California, to live with a different family hundreds of miles away in Utah -- simply because Lexi is 1.5% Choctaw (Dynar and Sandefur). Solely because Lexi has a very distant Native American ancestor, she was taken from the Pages, who want to adopt her as their own, but can’t adopt her because they aren’t of Native American ancestry (Dynar and Sandefur).

Trickledown economics and a work shortage is what I believed triggered the hostile xenophobic response.
