Abstract

In July of 2010, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights issued a report entitled The Multiethnic Placement Act: Minorities in Foster Care and Adoption. This individual statement by Commissioner Gail Heriot was part of that report. It discusses the enforcement difficulties with the Multiethnic Placement Act of 1994 and how they led to the stronger provisions of the Inter-Ethnic Placement Provisions of the Small Business Job Protection Act of 1996.
