"New Immigration Strategy: Koreans Send Children to America for Adoption"

The Pacific News Service - naturally - treats this as an acceptable practice, but perhaps some immigration official somewhere will look into this scam:
SAN FRANCISCO--A growing number of South Korean parents are paying retired couples in the United States to adopt their children.

Lots of illegal scams and cash changing hands, not all for the better of the children. Now these high schools are de facto segregated and test scores are slipping. But nobody cares, because to question of any of this is deemed racism.
