September 28, 2018 – A new lawsuit alleges New Mexico’s foster care system is “broken.” The potential class action suit was filed by 13 children and two nonprofits, and alleges, among other things, a lack of an appropriate number of foster parents, training and resources for those families, and inadequate medical treatment for children placed in the system. Host Gene Grant and the Line opinion panelists dig into the specifics, debate the state’s response to the allegations and discuss possible fixes.
