Why does the Democratic Party leadership refuse to build the wall they know will discourage illegal penetration of our country? Are they indifferent to the tragic reality of human trafficking? The U.S. State Department estimates that 14,500 to 17,500, or in some cases as many as 19,000, foreign nationals are trafficked into the United States each year.
By July 2018, the AMBER Alert Training and Technical Assistance Program disclosed, “Sex trafficking in and out of the United States has historically been big business. The trafficking of persons across the U.S. border for prostitution is estimated to be the third most significant source of revenue for organized crime syndicates, following the sale of drugs and firearms, writes Dr. Judith Reisman, a in WND.
She is a former principal investigator for the U.S. Department of Justice, Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention study of child sexual abuse and crimes suborned by “soft” pornography, and author of several books, the newest of which is “Sexual Sabotage: How One Mad Scientist Unleashed a Plague of Corruption and Contagion on America.”

“The U.S. Department of State (2005) estimated that 70 percent of all sex trafficked persons are trafficked from Mexico to the U.S., 50 percent of which are minors who are trafficked for prostitution.”
Perhaps one answer lies in the success President Trump has had in fighting human trafficking compared to his predecessor, Barack Obama, as seen in the chart above. The first 18 months of the Trump presidency saw a 743 percent increase in arrests of traffickers over the first two years of Barack Obama’s first term.
President Trump’s commitment to fighting human trafficking is apparent in his “Presidential Proclamation on National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, 2019.” This also received the media’s anti-Trump treatment. From the president:
Human trafficking is a modern form of slavery. It is not enough merely to denounce this horrific assault on human dignity; we must actively work to prevent and end this barbaric exploitation of innocent victims. During National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, we pledge to continue the battle to abolish modern slavery and restore the lives of those affected by human trafficking.
