CA Lawmaker Demands Audit of CPS After Baby Is Taken From Parents

A California lawmaker is now calling for a full audit of the state’s Child Protective Services after the agency helped police take a 5-month-old baby boy from his parents. As Megyn Kelly reported throughout this week, police ripped little Sammy from his home after his parents, Anna and Alex Nikolayev, told the hospital that was treating him that they wanted a second opinion on his condition.

Unbelievable video captured police, along with a social worker, in the Nikolayev home. One officer can be heard telling Anna, “I’m going to grab your baby and don’t resist and don’t fight me okay?”

Joe Weinberger, an attorney for Anna Nikolayev, joined America Live Friday and said that this happens all too often. “CPS oversteps its bounds, tries to protect its image more than the people they’re charged with the care and custody of,” he said.

Tim Donnelly is the California assemblyman behind the push for an audit of Child Protective Services. “If this mother committed any crime, it’s caring about her child too much […] The mother is the only rational figure here, and so I am demanding answers from CPS.”
