Biden Is Contributing To Human Trafficking

Written By BlabberBuzz | Monday, 05 July 2021 00:50

Unaccompanied migrant children face a bigger risk of trafficking because of the way that the Biden administration releases kids from government custody, a senior senator told the Washington Examiner.

Sen. Rob Portman, an Ohio Republican, explained that the flawed system that the government relies on to find sponsors for kids who come over the border has been further weakened by President Joe Biden, and the senator maintains that children will grieve.

Earlier this spring, in the midst of the highest-ever levels of migrant children coming alone on the U.S.-Mexico boundary, the Biden administration decided to stop getting as much personal information from adults who volunteered to take care of the children after they were let out of the Department of Health and Human Service’s child care centers.

THIS IS THE SWAMP: THE NEA BASICALLY BOUGHT JOE BIDEN

The move was meant to help illegal immigrants living in the United States who came forward to get children without worrying that they would risk getting caught by law enforcement and deported in the process.

Portman said he is concerned about the Biden administration’s call for all employees of government agencies to help out at HHS facilities working with children in custody, calling it a recipe for trouble and that the bureaucrats themselves could be a danger to children.

WATCH: EVEN TRUMP JUMPS ON THE WAGON DEMANDING COGNITIVE TEST FOR BIDEN

“While I am not aware of any wrongdoing yet, I am concerned that those employees could pose a risk to children — either because of potential intentional bad acts or because they are not properly trained or credentialed to work with children — especially those who have faced traumatic circumstances in their home countries or on their trip to the border,” Portman announced in an email. “I would hope that HHS would share ... the type of background checks if any, that HHS completes before the federal employees arrive to care for the children.”

WATCH: DERSHOWITZ ON THE BULLS#IT CASE AGAINST TRUMP

Furthermore, because of the way HHS releases immigrant children, local schools are not informed, suggesting that they are not prepared for new enrollees. Portman has tracked this specific issue for six years and relayed that he was told by state and local officials that “they are not told anything about the arrival of unaccompanied children in their states.”

GAETZ COMMITTED TO GET TRUMP BACK IN DC

“This means that no one in the school systems knows to be tracking whether these children show up to school,” Portman wrote. “That leaves these children more vulnerable to abuse, trafficking, and performing work that violates U.S. labor laws. It also leaves the school systems unprepared to accommodate the additional students who show up to class — particularly those who have special needs or language requirements.”

3 former Scientology workers sue, saying they were trafficked as children​

A federal lawsuit in Tampa accuses Scientology leader David Miscavige and the church of forcing child staffers to work in Clearwater.

Gawain Baxter was 6 years old when he signed a contract agreeing to work for the Church of Scientology for 1 billion years.
He said he spent his childhood doing manual labor at Scientology’s Flag Land Base in Clearwater, and getting no education beyond basic reading, writing and math.
At 15, Baxter attempted to leave by writing a letter to a superior about constant abuse and intolerable living conditions. Instead, he said, church officials sent him to Scientology’s Freewinds ship in the Caribbean, where he worked for little or no wages for 14 years.
Through its highly regimented Sea Org workforce, Scientology officials systematically trafficked Baxter, 39, and others by indoctrinating them as children and making it financially, physically and psychologically impossible for them to leave as adults, according to a lawsuit filed Thursday in Tampa federal court against Scientology leader David Miscavige and five church entities.
The 90-page complaint was filed on behalf of Baxter, his wife, Laura Baxter, and Valeska Paris, who all were raised in Scientology and worked on the Freewinds, where they said the church confiscated their passports and identification documents. They allege six counts of forced labor and peonage in violation of the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act.
“The culture of the church is defined by Miscavige,” Gawain Baxter said in an interview. “The best thing I could really hope for is to try and create awareness and try to hold him accountable for, in my opinion, the inhumane and barbaric treatment that people go through, that we’ve gone through.”
RELATED: Scientology members fuel another land-buying surge in Clearwater
Church of Scientology spokesman Ben Shaw did not respond to an email or phone call requesting comment.
Since the IRS reinstated Scientology as a tax exempt religion in 1993, the organization has faced persistent allegations of abuse but rarely met legal consequences.
In November, a federal appeals court upheld a ruling that sent a California couple’s fraud lawsuit against Scientology into the church’s religious arbitration because they had signed various contracts while members. But in a separate case in January, a California appeals court ruled that plaintiffs who sued Scientology and actor and parishioner Danny Masterson for stalking and harassment should not be bound to religious arbitration contracts they signed years earlier.
The three plaintiffs in the Tampa human trafficking complaint are being represented by a team of law firms with extensive records in human rights and anti terrorism litigation. One of them, Kohn Swift and Graf P.C., is also representing 80 plaintiffs in a civil case against the founder of the Nxivm cult, who was sentenced in 2020 to 120 years in prison for sex trafficking and other crimes.
Another firm, Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC, has represented Indonesian villagers in litigation against ExxonMobil for human rights abuses and the families of Colombian banana workers and political organizers killed by a terrorist group funded by Chiquita Brands International.

The Tampa complaint alleges that Scientology counseling, called auditing, lays the groundwork for the church to subjugate a large workforce and gain control over its members.
Scientology teaches that a so-called reactive mind is the source of all human pain and suffering, and that a person can clear the reactive mind by talking through memories and past traumas with an auditor.
But auditing sessions can become brutal interrogations that last hours, according to the lawsuit. It says subjects are often pressured into giving false confessions when they haven’t disclosed anything sufficiently compromising. Auditors record every detail discussed in order to obtain information that can later be used as leverage, the lawsuit states.
The auditing process “induces experiences of dissociation, which is intended to normalize the extremely abusive superior-subordinate dynamic that is central to (Scientology’s) operations,” according to the complaint.
Through the Cadet Org, the version of the Sea Org for children, Scientology separates minors from parents to further indoctrinate and manipulate its members, according to the lawsuit.
After signing a 1-billion-year contract at age 6, Valeska Paris lived in a dormitory for children in England near Scientology’s United Kingdom base. She did five hours of unpaid work a day, like landscaping, washing dishes and providing childcare for newborns, according to the lawsuit.
At age 14, Paris said, she was sent to the Flag Land Base in Clearwater, where she worked 12 to 18 hours per day for $15 per week. During hourslong counseling sessions with an adult male, the lawsuit states, the auditor interrogated her about sexual abuse she experienced as a child in the Sea Org. It said Paris “would be required to work out how she had caused the abuse and accept responsibility for causing it.”
A senior Sea Org member repeatedly sexually assaulted her, according to the lawsuit. Paris reported it to a superior, who reported it to Elizabeth Miscavige, David Miscavige’s sister-in-law, who was a senior officer. However, the lawsuit states, Paris was punished instead.
When she was 17, Paris’ mother fled the Sea Org without authorization. The next year, the lawsuit states, Paris was deemed subversive and sent to the Freewinds, where she worked 16- to 18-hour days. She also was subjected to intensive auditing, constantly forced to confess to alleged crimes.
For one punishment, Paris was confined for 48 hours in the engine room, where the temperature was over 100 degrees, according to the lawsuit.
After 11 years on the ship, she was sent to a work camp in Australia called the Rehabilitation Project Force. There, following multiple requests to exit the Sea Org, she was permitted to leave by going through four months of intensive interrogation called security checks.
When she left Scientology in Australia, “she had no money, no official identification and no ability to even open a bank account because she was not legally in the country in which (Scientology) had sent her for punishment,” according to the lawsuit.
The church launched a website attacking Paris after the Australian government contacted her in 2011 about inadequate compensation at Scientology’s work camp, according to the lawsuit. The website remains active today.
Laura Baxter was raised in Scientology in Germany, joined the Sea Org at age 16 and was sent to work on the Freewinds. As a prerequisite, the lawsuit states, she was subjected to interrogations that lasted 12 hours at a time, where she was asked explicit questions about sex, past criminal behavior and any affiliations with law enforcement.
During a birthday celebration on the ship for a celebrity in 2004, the lawsuit states, a superior falsely accused Laura Baxter of trying to monopolize the unnamed actor’s attention. As punishment, the lawsuit states, she was confined to the engine room for three days, “allowed to leave for only a few minutes at a time for meals and to return to her room for a few hours of sleep.”
She was also assigned to what Scientology calls a lower condition, where she was subjected to forced confessions and not paid for her manual labor.
Gawain Baxter and Laura Baxter met on the Freewinds in 2004. After they got married, the lawsuit states, Gawain “began to consider the possibility of a different and better life in the world that Scientology had taught him to distrust.”
But the lawsuit explains that even considering leaving Scientology is a high crime, punishable by intense physical labor. So the couple hatched a plan.
At the time, Scientology had a ban on Sea Org members having children. Forced abortions among the workforce were getting negative media attention.
According to the lawsuit, Laura Baxter deliberately became pregnant by her husband and refused superiors’ orders to get an abortion.
As punishment, the Baxters were ordered to undergo intense security check interrogations and put under full-time surveillance, according to the lawsuit.
Before being allowed to leave the ship in 2012, the Baxters were compelled to sign a series of documents that they did not have time to review while being videotaped.
“They were trapped on the ship, and the only way off was to submit to the demands of (Scientology) and sign the documents,” the lawsuit states.
Today the Baxters “are regularly intimidated by phone calls from Scientologists” soliciting them to resume participation in the church, according to the lawsuit.
“These calls are intended to remind them that (church officials) continue to monitor them and test the extent to which they pose a risk” to Scientology, the complaint states.

Everyone claming to care about the situation at the border needs to see this! [ck site link, above]

In this exclusive interview, a whistleblower for MVM Inc., a federally funded migrant escort service, details how thousands of children are being shipped throughout the U.S. on charter flights and buses.

He also details how employees of this company are not receiving proper background checks and are handing children off to improperly vetted adult “sponsors.”


His testimony gives us a chilling insight into how our own government is using tax-payer money to put migrant children at risk all across the country.

POSOBIEC: Biden Behind 'Child Trafficking' Operation at Southern Border​


By Roberto Wakerell-Cruz | August 17, 2022

Link: https://humanevents.com/2022/08/17/...ild-trafficking-operation-at-southern-border/

Human Events Daily host Jack Posobiec dug into the details of a new story that reveals the Biden regime has been flying tens of thousands of unaccompanied migrant children to “sponsors.”
“This is just an incredible story, obviously, we know War Room Steve Bannon had this story this morning… Make sure you go to The Post Millennial, check this out, and understand what’s going on. A federal whistleblower has come forward to Savannah Hernandez, who was with me in Davos,” said Posobiec, recounting how Hernandez was with him when he was detained by World Economic Forum-aligned police earlier this year in Switzerland.

“Well now, Sav is back with another amazing exclusive. This federal whistleblower has come forward, to tell the truth about the secret night flights that the Biden regime is conducting. 2,000 to 3,000 children were told per week, and that’s just one office. If you include all the offices from the border, it might be as many as 10,000 a week, and they’re flying them all across. That’s 40,000 per month, flown all across the country. Sometimes they have sponsors, sometimes they’re vetted, sometimes unvetted.
Reading from The Post Millennial‘s story, Posobiec says that an “anonymous whistleblower who works as a ‘travel youth care worker’ for a federally funded contractor, shared that tens of thousands of unaccompanied migrant children are being bussed and flown throughout the US and being handed off to unvetted adult ‘sponsors.'”
Posobiec notes that Hernandez reports the name of, MVM Inc., a company whose “focus is getting unaccompanied minors from ‘Point A, shelters,’ to ‘Point B, sponsors,’ across the US.'”
The story states that “due to the overwhelming number of border crossings, the employee shared that new hires for MVM Inc. are not being given proper background checks, ‘a lot of people’ get hired, and ‘their background hasn’t even come in yet,'” he reads.
“Keep in mind, by the way, in New York, Mayor Eric Adams has said that these migrants, and we don’t know if that’s minors or just all, that are coming to New York City, that he’s going to put them up in a luxury hotel in Times Square,” Posobiec said.
It was recently revealed that Democratic Mayor Eric Adams plans to convert the Row NYC, formerly known as the Milford Plaza and nicknamed the “Lullaby of Broadway” in Times Square, into an intake center and shelter for as many as 600 migrant families. The mayor’s office has not released any details but did tell the New York Post on Monday that the city has extended its deadline for receiving bids from organizations interested in operating the center.
“Due to the mass amount of migrant children being escorted, employees are not properly vetting the adults they’re handing these kids off to,” he continued.
“She’s even got an email up,” Posobiec continued: “multiple issues that were brought to the MVM site manager’s attention, including ‘TSs’ (Travel Escorts) taking the liberty of accepting alternate documents without FFS approval.'”
“No serious country would be doing this unless there was a specific reason. You’re looking at an operation. You need to understand that we’re looking at an operation of not only human trafficking, but in this case, child trafficking. We don’t know, and they don’t know, who these children are, why they’re coming across the border. A ten-year-old girl was just raped and impregnated in Ohio over this. We’re told that her mother may have known something about it. The stuff that’s going on is completely insane. And the Biden regime, rather than actually get to the bottom of it or stop it, end this situation, they’re exacerbating it. They’re setting up a toxic incentive structure, and good, honest people are falling into it.
“This needs to stop, and this entire situation needs to be shut down,” he concluded.

Project Veritas Whistleblower Exposes HHS Complicity In Child Trafficking At Southern Border​

Your taxes are being used to prostitute illegal immigrant children

A federal government whistleblower working for the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity & Efficiency [CIGIE] has worked with Project Veritas on a nine-month investigation into the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services [HHS] and its involvement in human trafficking.

The whistleblower, Tara Lee Rodas, spoke with Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe in the following video to explain what the shocking investigation revealed.

Rodas volunteered last year to help HHS with the placement of unaccompanied minors entering the U.S. and was sent to work at an intake site in California.
What the brave whistleblower witnessed next was a disturbing network of vulnerable children being flown directly to human traffickers using American tax dollars.
Project Veritas journalists followed up on leads provided by Rodas and was able to talk with multiple children, one of them telling a reporter she was being “pimped” for sex.
The sixteen-year-old girl made it clear she “didn’t like” being “forced” to have sex with “many” men.
The woman who trafficked the girl claimed to be her aunt who knew her as a child, but the girl said she “didn’t know her.”
The sponsors of the illegal immigrant children can also use deportation as a threat to make them obey their commands, according to the federal government whistleblower.

In April of 2021, Alex Jones went viral for a video of him trying to stop children from being smuggled into America.
Despite the video evidence showing Jones attempting to call the authorities and physically block a vehicle transporting minors, fact-check sites like Snopes claimed to debunk the video at the time.

Senators Press HHS As Whistleblower Alleges Unaccompanied Children Being Transferred To Criminals​

BY TYLER DURDEN
FRIDAY, DEC 09, 2022 - 06:00 PM
Authored by Rita Li via The Epoch Times (emphasis ours),

Link: https://www.zerohedge.com/political...eges-unaccompanied-children-being-transferred

A group of Republicans is seeking information from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) over allegations that the department “knowingly” places some unaccompanied illegal immigrant minors in the hands of criminals, according to a letter released on Tuesday.
We write concerning an alarming report by a federal employee whistleblower that the [HHS] is knowingly transferring unaccompanied migrant children in the custody of criminals, including sex traffickers,” five GOP lawmakers wrote in a Dec. 5 joint letter to HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra. The group cited testimony that the government failed to settle minors, who were caught while crossing the U.S. borders, into homes of “safe, non-criminal sponsors.”
“If these claims are true, this is pure evil being committed by your agency,” they wrote.
HHS officially acknowledges that unaccompanied border crossers under the age of 18 are “especially vulnerable” to human trafficking, exploitation, and abuse, but states that the “majority” are looked after by state-licensed providers operating under cooperative agreements and contract to deliver high-quality care.

Whistleblower Testimony​

The letter comes after non-profit investigative journalism watchdog Project Veritas spoke with Tara Lee Rodas, who formerly assisted the HHS with the processing of unaccompanied immigrant children at an Emergency Intake Site in Pomona, California, as an employee of the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE). She told the outlet that she believes the current child sponsorship program funded by the department’s Office of Refugee Resettlement is precarious for these minors.
The tax dollars of people who are listening are paying to put children in the hands of criminals,” Rodas said of what she has witnessed. “[Most people] have no idea that children are going to unrelated people. That children are definitely—we have proof, evidence—that they are being recruited and transported. They are then in debt bondage.”
A Veritas journalist found one illegal immigrant female minor who corroborated Rodas’s concerns at an address Rodas provided. The minor told the journalist that her sponsor, who claims to be her aunt, had forced her into situations of sexual abuse: “She was pimping me and I didn’t like that. She would pimp me to men.”
The Epoch Times has been unable to independently verify the claims.
Rodas said she has expressed her concerns to department officials. However, this usually led to dismissals of her concerns and sometimes retaliation at work.
During a previous talk to the command center executives, the whistleblower alleged she was told, “Tara, I think you need to understand that we only get sued if we keep kids in care too long. We don’t get sued by traffickers. Are you clear? We don’t get sued by traffickers.”
[The Biden administration] relaxed a lot of the stringent vetting by creating these additional field guidances, and there’s a focus on ‘move the children’ as opposed to ‘place children in safe homes.’ Right now, it is speed over safety,” she added.

Now, leading four of his fellow GOP lawmakers, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.), a member of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee (HSGAC), is demanding that Becerra release information regarding Rodas’s complaint on how the HHS vets sponsors of unaccompanied children who cross borders alone.

“This cannot be swept under the rug,” the senators said in the letter.

Rose McGowan Rips Jack Dorsey over Claim Twitter Took Action Against Child Porn: ‘Why Should We Believe You Now?’​

by Breitbart
December 11th 2022, 5:01 am

Link: https://www.infowars.com/posts/rose...nst-child-porn-why-should-we-believe-you-now/

Hollywood star-in-exile Rose McGowan has called into question Jack Dorsey’s credibility after the former Twitter CEO claimed the company took action to halt the spread of child pornography on the social media platform. “Why should we believe you now?” the actress asked.

On Friday, Jack Dorsey refuted current Twitter owner Elon Musk’s claim that the company “refused to take action on child exploitation for years.”


“This is false,” Dorsey tweeted, adding: “I don’t know what happened in the past year. But to say we didn’t take action for years isn’t true. You can make all my emails public to verify. Company took away my access to email or I would.”

McGowan wasn’t buying Dorsey’s side of the story, noting that Twitter deactivated her account four days after she went public with a sexual assault claim. “If that’s how your Twitter ran, why should we believe you now?”

The actress didn’t elaborate but she appears to be referring to time Twitter locked her account in 2017 after she came forward about being raped by Harvey Weinstein and encouraged others to speak out against Hollywood’s culture of silence in the face of sexual misconduct.

And yet @jack you deactived a assault victim’s account (mine) 4 days after I went public. If that’s how your Twitter ran, why should we believe you now? @elizableu @elonmusk @Cernovich #VF https://t.co/lo5FSrVCni
— Rose✨McGowan (@rosemcgowan) December 9, 2022

this is false.
— jack (@jack) December 9, 2022

No, it is not.

When Ella Irwin, who now runs Trust & Safety, joined Twitter earlier this year, almost no one was working on child safety.

She raised this with Ned & Parag, but they rejected her staffing request.

I made it top priority immediately.@ellagirwin

Evil Walks Among Us: Child Trafficking Now Big Business in America​

by John & Nisha Whitehead | The Rutherford Institute
January 24th 2023, 10:26 am

Link: https://www.infowars.com/posts/evil-walks-among-us-child-trafficking-now-big-business-in-america/

This growing evil is, for all intents and purposes, out in the open.
Children are being targeted and sold for sex in America every day.”—John Ryan, National Center for Missing & Exploited Children
It takes a special kind of evil to prostitute and traffick a child for sex, and yet this evil walks among us every minute of every day.


Consider this: every two minutes, a child is bought and sold for sex.

Hundreds of young girls and boys—some as young as 9 years old—are being bought and sold for sex, as many as 20 times per day.

Adults purchase children for sex at least 2.5 million times a year in the United States alone.

In Georgia alone, it is estimated that 7,200 men (half of them in their 30s) seek to purchase sex with adolescent girls each month, averaging roughly 300 a day.

On average, a child might be raped by 6,000 men during a five-year period.

It is estimated that at least 100,000 to 500,000 children—girls and boys—are bought and sold for sex in the U.S. every year, with as many as 300,000 children in danger of being trafficked each year. Some of these children are forcefully abducted, others are runaways, and still others are sold into the system by relatives and acquaintances.


Child rape has become Big Business in America.

This is not a problem found only in big cities.

It’s happening everywhere, right under our noses, in suburbs, cities and towns across the nation.

As Ernie Allen of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children points out, “The only way not to find this in any American city is simply not to look for it.”

Like so many of the evils in our midst, sex trafficking (and the sexualization of young people) is a cultural disease that is rooted in the American police state’s heart of darkness. It speaks to a sordid, far-reaching corruption that stretches from the highest seats of power (governmental and corporate) down to the most hidden corners and relies on our silence and our complicity to turn a blind eye to wrongdoing.

It is estimated that the number of children who are at risk of being trafficked or have already been sold into the sex trade would fill 1300 school buses.

The internet has become the primary means of sexual predators targeting and selling young children for sex. “One in five kids online are sexually propositioned through gaming platforms and other social media. And those, non-contact oriented forums of sexual exploitation are increasing,” said researcher Brian Ulicny.

It’s not just young girls who are vulnerable, either.

According to a USA Today investigative report, “boys make up about 36% of children caught up in the U.S. sex industry (about 60% are female and less than 5% are transgender males and females).”

Every year, the ages of the girls and boys being bought and sold get younger and younger.

The average age of those being trafficked is 13. Yet as the head of a group that combats trafficking pointed out, “Let’s think about what average means. That means there are children younger than 13. That means 8-, 9-, 10-year-olds.”

They’re minors as young as 13 who are being trafficked,” noted a 25-year-old victim of trafficking. “They’re little girls.”

This is America’s dirty little secret.

But what or who is driving this evil appetite for young flesh? Who buys a child for sex?

Otherwise ordinary men from all walks of life. “They could be your co-worker, doctor, pastor or spouse,” writes journalist Tim Swarens, who spent more than a year investigating the sex trade in America.

According to criminal investigator Marc Chadderdon, these “buyers”—the so-called “ordinary” men who drive the demand for sex with children—represent a cross-section of American society: every age, every race, every socio-economic background, cops, teachers, corrections workers, pastors, etc.

America’s police forces—riddled with corruption, brutality, sexual misconduct and drug abuse—represent another facet of the problem: police have become both predators and pimps. As the Philadelphia Inquirer reports, “Hundreds of police officers across the country have turned from protectors to predators, using the power of their badge to extort sex.”

Young girls are particularly vulnerable to these predators in blue.

Former police officer Phil Stinson estimates that half of the victims of police sex crimes are minors under the age of eighteen. According to The Washington Post, a national study found that 40 percent of reported cases of police sexual misconduct involved teens.

For example, in California, a police sergeant—a 16-year veteran of the police force—was arrested for raping a 16-year-old girl who was being held captive and sold for sex in a home in an upscale neighborhood.

A Pennsylvania police chief and his friend were arrested for allegedly raping a young girl hundreds of times—orally, vaginally, and anally several times a week—over the course of seven years, starting when she was 4 years old.

Two NYPD cops were accused of arresting a teenager, handcuffing her, and driving her in an unmarked van to a nearby parking lot, where they raped her and forced her to perform oral sex on them, then dropped her off on a nearby street corner.

The New York Times reports that “a sheriff’s deputy in San Antonio was charged with sexually assaulting the 4-year-old daughter of an undocumented Guatemalan woman and threatening to have her deported if she reported the abuse.”

And then you have national sporting events such as the Super Bowl, where sex traffickers have been caught selling minors, some as young as 9 years old. Whether or not the Super Bowl is a “windfall” for sex traffickers as some claim, it remains a lucrative source of income for the child sex trafficking industry and a draw for those who are willing to pay to rape young children.

Finally, as I documented in an earlier column, the culture is grooming these young people to be preyed upon by sexual predators.

Social media makes it all too easy. As one news center reported, “Finding girls is easy for pimps. They look on … social networks. They and their assistants cruise malls, high schools and middle schools. They pick them up at bus stops. On the trolley. Girl-to-girl recruitment sometimes happens.” Foster homes and youth shelters have also become prime targets for traffickers.

Rarely do these children enter into prostitution voluntarily. Many start out as runaways or throwaways, only to be snatched up by pimps or larger sex rings. Others, persuaded to meet up with a stranger after interacting online through one of the many social networking sites, find themselves quickly initiated into their new lives as sex slaves.

According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, nearly 800,000 children go missing every year (roughly 2,185 children a day).

For those trafficked, it’s a nightmare from beginning to end.

Those being sold for sex have an average life expectancy of seven years, and those years are a living nightmare of endless rape, forced drugging, humiliation, degradation, threats, disease, pregnancies, abortions, miscarriages, torture, pain, and always the constant fear of being killed or, worse, having those you love hurt or killed.

A common thread woven through most survivors’ experiences is being forced to go without sleep or food until they have met their sex quota of at least 40 men.

As David McSwane recounts in a chilling piece for the Herald-Tribune: “In Oakland Park, an industrial Fort Lauderdale suburb, federal agents in 2011 encountered a brothel operated by a married couple. Inside ‘The Boom Boom Room,’ as it was known, customers paid a fee and were given a condom and a timer and left alone with one of the brothel’s eight teenagers, children as young as 13. A 16-year-old foster child testified that he acted as security, while a 17-year-old girl told a federal judge she was forced to have sex with as many as 20 men a night.”

One particular sex trafficking ring catered specifically to migrant workers employed seasonally on farms throughout the southeastern states, especially the Carolinas and Georgia, although it’s a flourishing business in every state in the country. Traffickers transport the women from farm to farm, where migrant workers would line up outside shacks, as many as 30 at a time, to have sex with them before they were transported to yet another farm where the process would begin all over again.

This growing evil is, for all intents and purposes, out in the open.

Unfortunately, as I document in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People and in its fictional counterpart The Erik Blair Diaries, the government’s war on sex trafficking, much like the government’s war on terrorism, drugs and crime, has become a perfect excuse for inflicting more police state tactics (police check points, searches, surveillance, and heightened security) on a vulnerable public while doing little to actually protect our children from sex predators.

That so many children continue to be victimized, brutalized and treated like human cargo is due to three things: one, a consumer demand that is increasingly lucrative for everyone involved—except the victims; two, a level of corruption so invasive on both a local and international scale that there is little hope of working through established channels for change; and three, an eerie silence from individuals who fail to speak out against such atrocities.
