WATCH PRESS CONFERENCE

A CHILD HAS BEEN TAKEN
February 26, 2021 - Pregnant Syesha Mercado, former American Idol finalist, visited the hospital hoping to get her then 13-month-old son Amen’Ra support as he made the transition to being bottle-fed and fed solids.
March 11, 2021 - Syesha was confronted by a child protective services investigator and armed police officers with hostility and mischaracterizations that she had denied her son urgent medical care in the form of a B12 shot.
Amen'Ra was placed with a white foster family during a pandemic with increasingly limited access to updates and
in person visitations.
