Back to Ohio, with a little help

Teenage runaway Fathima Rifqa Bary will be in the temporary custody of Franklin County Children Services upon returning to Ohio.

Magistrate Mary Goodrich’s order will take effect when the girl is transported back to Ohio or when the Florida court is satisfied with the documents to be provided by her parents establishing her immigration status.

The 17-year-old girl, who goes by Rifqa, is a native of Sri Lanka, and her immigration status is unclear. A Florida attorney appointed to represent her said in court Tuesday that there’s a chance she’s not in the United States legally.
. . .
Goodrich also ordered psychological evaluations for the Barys and Rifqa.

Thanks, judge.
