Adoptive Mother Who Hates Trump: I’m Sorry I Brought My Daughters To America

Writing in Marie Claire on Election Day, a woman who adopted her two daughters from China spewed her hatred of President Trump and his administration in a venomous essay in which she stated she regretted adopting and bringing her daughters to America.

In the essay, titled, “Why Trump’s America Makes Me Regret Adopting My Daughters,” Lisa Milbrand, begins her descent into vitriol with a happy memory:

The first time their tiny feet touched American soil, we made a big deal of it. We were so happy about everything they’d inherit as newly minted Americans—our already head-over-heels love for them, every opportunity we could afford, and freedom from China’s oppressive government and its controversial (and now somewhat lifted) one-child policy.

But then, the horror: “I pulled those two beautiful babies away from a rising power and into a damaged democracy. I brought two girls of color into a society where it’s clear that their word and their bodies are worth less than a man’s—and where open, overt racism has become even more likely now than it was a decade ago.”

Milbrand segues to an attack on Trump. “Two years ago, I brought my daughters to the voting booth with me, expecting that they’d witness the election of the very first woman president. Instead, we got a guy with multiple sexual allegations made against him, who backs candidates for the highest posts in the land who also have assault and molestation claims against them.”

What political issue first comes to her radical feminist mind? Three guesses.

Trump promised during his campaign that he would roll back Roe v. Wade, and new Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh’s conservative judicial record makes it seem like he’d be just the man to help do it—no matter his protestations that he considers it ‘settled law.’ The idea that my daughters may lose the right to control what happens to their bodies—especially if they end up with a pregnancy that’s the result of a sexual assault, or one that could do serious damage to their health—keeps me up at night.

What’s a mother to do?

This: “We are thinking of stockpiling of Plan B pills, just in case my daughters’ right to choose what happens to their bodies disappears.”

Back to attacking Trump, this time insinuating that he has caused prejudice against Asian-Americans, as well as other people of color: “We are only two years into Trump’s administration, and even in our bright blue corner of the country, Asian people are accosted on the street by white people telling them to ‘go back to your own country.’ Trump’s remarks against their birth country, China, grow ever angrier as the trade war continues. And as part of the Trump administration’s war on brown and black people, every few weeks, there’s another news story about an international adoptee being deported back to a country they don’t remember, without a family or a safety net.”

Then, the paranoia: “Like many of my fellow adoptive parents, I ordered a passport card for my teen, so she could prove her citizenship wherever she went. I double and triple checked our paperwork, and started hunting for a lawyer to do pricey readoptions so we could add a security-blanket layer of paper proof for our girls. And then I worry that a sheaf of papers can be invalidated with a stroke of a pen—and the government’s brutal separation of child immigrants from their parents isn’t exactly inspiring confidence.”

The overheated rhetoric leads to this conclusion:

I skip my daughter’s soccer games to march and spend my nights volunteering to get out the vote. I divert money from their college funds toward campaigns that might help save our democracy. And on the very worst days, I start to look at what it would take to leave the country that I love, permanently. And my heart breaks just a little more. I’d sacrifice everything for the sake of my daughters. I just never thought it would come to this.

    What about all the illegal aliens who voluntarily leave their children behind? Or the deported aliens who don’t take their children with them? Or the unaccompanied minors sent here by their parents? Or the child sex traffickers? Or the child drug mules? The illegal aliens choose to separate themselves.

    Your forgetting the fact that human life is cheap to the democrats that call women’s Marches for women but are for Planned Parent hood and the don’t allow Pro-life women to attend these marches. This women has issues with men and its evident in her rant. She doesn’t care what the law is here especially if it goes against her fantasy of how it should be. I can’t even begin to say just how saddened I am about the current situation in the states where half of this country thinks its perfectly fine to break the law and play head games through the media to the most average voters.

    hold tight the ride isn’t over

      Instead of wasting money and time on hatred toward our President who is doing everything possible for the country he loves, this woman should have educated herself first before bringing children from another country into the United States. Why did she not try to adopt from within our own country? Oh, I know….the Feminists want to murder their unloved children before they are born. Therefore there are no adoptable children here.
      My answer for her is, take your adopted daughters and move to where you brought them from. Problem solved. We do not need more haters here>
      Another question…what color are your children? My Chinese friends do not consider themselves another color, but then they are more educated than you.

    She’s perfectly welcome to take her daughters and leave America. No one is holding her here. Lisa Milbrand, why did you use your daughters college fund to stump for a democrat? BTW.. We are NOT a democracy, we are a REPUBLIC.. Those poor girls, being raised by a nitwit.

    You sound like the racist and not very bright. Your children’s well being and future should come before donation to political events. Also, you seem very proud to vote for one of the MOST CORRUPT, LYING, EVIL, RACIST BITCH OF ALL TIME. DID YOU NOT RESEARCH HILARY OR DID YOU VOTE FOR HER BECAUSE SHE WAS A WOMAN. I say because she’s a woman and problably like voting for Obama because he was black. Way to go.

    A woman who RUINED THE LIVES of the women her husband assaulted. Hilary played a huge part in their demise. What about the money from Saudi Arabia totaling over $125 million that I’m sure she never gave back? Taking this money from a country that oppresses women and kills gays.

    How proud you must be to support a woman who has no problem killing a NINE MONTH OLD BABY but you stock up on those baby killing pills and abortion numbers to call.

    I did not have a good mother but I thank God she wasn’t YOU.

      How come we do not have a like button. You told it perfectly. We do not have fences around our country for people to leave. The world is still pretty big, so she should take her kids and get out of our country which we love. She is racist since she immediately calls he children…of color. Why is that?

    Such overly dramatic drivel; laws make provisions for pregnancies that threaten the life of the Mother etc., she’s just spouting off irrelevant stuff because she doesn’t like Trump. A responsible person who is a good parent learns to deal with things they don’t like. Half this country was and still is sick to their teeth of enduring the failed politics of Barack Obama but we got through it and worked to make things better. I too question if you should have adopted; I pray for the future of children in your care

    She used college funds to further a political agenda bad parenting mistake number 1. She has indoctrinated innocent minds who have no choice because she’s apparently all they have maybe they husband isn’t so batshit crazy unlikely though that’s mistake number 2. She thinks it’s better to March in her man haters woman club marches also back to my previous comment she likely doesn’t have a husband with how much she hates half of her own species mistake number three. Instead of trying to let them create their own ideas and learn about the world first hand so they can make unbaised conclusions she’s activly brain washing blank slates to create more foot soldiers basically. She has no love for these girls she’s making up clear lies or digging for a single example of some idiot being racist. She claimed she lives deep in a blue state so her encountering people on the streets shouting are her Chinese adoptive daughters to go back to China and such seems highly unlikely I’d be more inclined to believe she saw a unicorn. This woman should never have been allowed to adopt kids in the first placd they clearly didn’t do a mental health screening on this nutjob she’s literally made shit up about Trump and kavanaugh said he’s said and done things he’s absolutely not said and done. Kavanaugh clearly stated roe v wade was settled law when it’s clearly a law that needs reworked not abolished. Abortions shouldn’t be available to anyone who partied too hard or just doesn’t feel like raising a baby right now. They harp on all day about a woman’s right to choice of her own body yet not once will they bring up the rights of that viable living and growing human in her womb. I guess since it’s not outside her body and talking on it’s on it doesn’t exist and has no rights the woman i guess gets to decide for another human being if they deserve a chance at life or not just some women that are abortion crazy can keep on being careless and free with no babies to hold them down. Abortions should be on certain cases only it’s not a damn business it’s a service that should only be required for medical reasons period if you got raped and got pregnant I understand not wanting to have it but that baby is innocent give birth and give it to for adoption. Sure it’s father was apparently a bad DNA donor but the baby isn’t certain to come out the same it could be the person who cured cancer or all known illness. I digress this lady is in no shape way or form mentally capable of raising children and shouldn’t even be allowed to talk to children unaccompanied. She’s using these kids as a weapon to wield at whatever opposes her radical ideology.
