Need for Interstate Adoption Act and Treaty
The Wyatt adoption civil case has been settled and the settlement has been sealed. While this ends the civil aspects, the criminal aspects have not been addressed by the authorities, However, the need to have a uniform interstate adoption Act is a goal that needs to be achieved, Criminal penalties need to be attached to the act both for enforcement and activation of US vs Parks which only applies to criminal prosecutions. The decision states that an executive can be held criminally liable if the executive fails to take corrective action of criminal acts of lower echelon employees. Adoption should be a joyous event but there needs to be a standard for both interstate US adoption and adoption occurring between two different countries.
