More than 400 children removed from a polygamist sect’s ranch will be returned to their parents beginning today, Texas officials chastened by a state Supreme Court ruling said Friday.

The children won’t be able to leave Texas but they will be allowed to move back to Yearning For Zion Ranch, where child-welfare officials have alleged that underage girls were pushed into spiritual marriages with older men. The parents say there was no abuse, and two courts ruled that the state overstepped its authority in removing all children from the ranch, from infants to teenagers.
