Help bring Lexi home | In the Greenroom – Fox & Friends

A 6-year-old girl of partial Choctaw heritage was taken from a foster family in Southern California by social workers Monday under the Indian Child Welfare Act, despite efforts by her family and supporters to try to block the move.

Social workers arrived at the home of Rusty and Summer Page shortly before 3 p.m. local time to take the girl, named Lexi, so she can be placed with blood relatives in Utah, Fox 11 reported.

The move was made under the federal Indian Child Welfare Act, which was enacted in the 1970s to help protect the interests of Native American children. Lexi is 1.5% Choctaw, Fox 11 reported.

Under the watchful eye of various cell phone cameras, social workers stood outside the front door of the home while the family prepared for the girl’s departure. Supporters outside the home sang “Amazing Grace.”
