According to KGW-TV, Gov. Ted Kulongoski is looking into taking action in the Baby Gabriel case.
Today Governor Kulongoski said he is waiting for the Attorney General’s Office to tell him if he has authority to step into the case, and if he does have authority, what his options are.
When asked if the boy should be sent to live in Mexico Kulongoski seemed to lean towards keeping him in America.
. . .
“If you’re asking me just as a citizen, not based on the law or anything else--the kid’s an American citizen,” he said.
When pressed on whether he wanted to keep Gabriel in Oregon, Kulongoski laughed and said, “I can’t say that. It's just an emotional reaction. It isn’t made on anything--I just have this belief about this country."
