News / Member News / KOSU NPR, 'Today our heads are not bowed:' U.S. Supreme Court upholds the Indian Child Welfare Act

Judge John Romero, Jr. (ret.) provides commentary on the U.S. Supreme Court decision upholding the Indian Child Welfare Act on KOSU.

“The Supreme Court has stated in the past that precedent, you know, is what they rely on,” Romero said. “And we’ve seen, of course, where they’ve departed from that and the Indian Child Welfare Act, you know, passed in 1978 and has been the law for a long time.”

“ICWA keeps families together rather than tearing them apart.”
