Alienated Father asks judge to deliver christmas presents

Donald Tenn of Sacramento, California is taking creative measures to ensure his Christmas gifts are delivered to his daughter in Moultrie County, Illinois.

He is asking Illinois Judge Flannell, who refuses to enforce his California visitation orders, to make the delivery for him.

Donald's partner, Shannon Phillips took their daughter 2,089 miles away to visit family in Illinois. She never returned.

Using his daughter as collateral, Phillips asked Tenn to move their small family to Illinois. His insistence that the family home was in Sacramento, where the pair has agreed to conceive and raise their child, was met with allegations of domestic violence, and the resulting restraining order.

Despite Tenn's unrelenting efforts, and new legal orders from California
that demand he have visitation with his daughter, Phillips has only permitted one time in two years.

Illinois states attorney, Marvin Hanson, refuses to intervene on Tenn's behalf. Meanwhile, Phillips actions are endorsed by her patron, Dove Inc., a religious organization that generates revenue from the Violence Against Women Act.

Federal taxpayer dollars have funded
the alienation of Madison from her father based on nothing but arbitrary emotions and opinions. The judiciary of Illinois has done nothing to protect Tenn's rights as a parent.

Dove is a coalition of religious organizations, volunteers, and advocates that seeks to coordinate efforts to address unmet human needs and social injustices.
"Dove, Inc. changes the lives of approximately 5,000 people a year."
