美国偶像明矾 Syesha Mercado 失去了第二个孩子的监护权 5 在她出生后的几个月: 'Legally Kidnapped'

美国偶像 alum Syesha Mercado and partner Tyron Deneer have lost custody of their newborn daughter following a roadside safety check in Florida on Wednesday.

This news comes just five months after her 18-month-old son Amen’Ra was — in her words —forcefully and legally kidnappedby the Florida Department of Children and Families on March 11.

Deneer and Mercado recorded this week’s police encounter on Instagram, 写作: “THEY TOOK OUR BABY AGAIN!”

In the video of their interaction with Manatee County sheriff’s deputies, the couple receives a court order to turn over the then-10-day-old baby for a hospital checkup despite their claims they have paperwork proving she had just gone on Tuesday.

My baby is days old, and you’re taking my baby away from me. You have no heart. This is so wrong,” Mercado can be heard saying in the video.

The traffic stop was reportedly a surprise to the couple, as they had asked that all casework be handled through their lawyers, The Root 报道.

The child remains in state protection following an August 12 court hearing, 根据 Miami Herald-Tribune.

Mercado appeared on season 7 的 美国偶像 在 2008, placing third to David CookDavid Archuleta.

The 34-year-old singer claims she had previously taken her son Ra to Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in Florida for fluids while transitioning from breastfeeding to the bottle due to her pregnancy when Child Protective Services took the boy.

On March 11th, our sun [原文如此] Amen’Ra was forcefully and legally kidnapped from us by CPS, who claim we refused a B12 shot that was a matter of life and death, which is an absolute lie,” states Mercado’s GoFundMe 页. “We never refused a B12 shot, and at no point was he on the verge of death.

Mercado also insists her children are prime examples of racial discrimination in Manatee County.

Our Sun [原文如此] has since been placed with a white foster family without interviewing qualified relatives or friends of our family for placement while they investigate. We are given limited information and presently only have weekly zoom visitation for an hour with our sun, with no court order stating these visitation limitations,” reads her GoFundMe, which was initially created to help bring her son Ra home.

The racial discrimination that our community is facing right now is focused on Police Brutality because of the visibility and documentation. But we don’t think about the other forms of systematic oppression that come as a sub-set. In particular, the Victimization of our children through the Foster Care System. They become the forgotten ones, falling through the cracks because mothers and fathers are too afraid to take on the gigantic task of standing up to a way of thinking and laws that are steeped in colonial times. Parents are coerced to sign plans and documents under mental duress, essentially signing away their rights to a system that doesn’t love or understand us,” the fundraiser continues.

The Florida Department of Children and Families did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment. A representative for Mercado also did not respond to PEOPLE.

Mercado’s GoFundMe has raised over $250,000 as of this publication.
