Do NOT Incentivize More Child Trafficking

Democrats and Establishment Republicans cry crocodile tears for children to get child trafficking to continue.

The media knows that child trafficking and child abuse were encouraged and increased by Barack Obama’s policies. Recently, HuffPo blared the headline, “80% Of Central American Women, Girls Are Raped Crossing Into The U.S.” That leaves the impression that they are raped crossing our border. No, the story says they are raped in Mexico. Wow, are things so bad in Central America that sexual assault is a price worth paying or a risk worth taking? It turns out that immigrants were mostly young men until people found out that, if they were a family, they could get into and stay in the country illegally through “catch and release.”

Not only did it incentivize families to make a dangerous trip that harmed children, but it also incentivized child trafficking. Smugglers can recycle children across the border to get adults into the country.

John Nolte writes at Breitbart.com, “13 Facts the Media ‘Pros’ Don’t Want You to Know About ‘Family Border Separation.’

If word gets out that America automatically allows illegal border crossers with small children loose into America just because they have minor children, this would only further incentivize those who engage in the child abuse of dragging children along on the unbelievably dangerous trek across the border — or, even worse, both exploiting them for catch-and-release and then trafficking them after making it into the country.

[…]

Until Obama came along, illegal border crossings primarily involved young, single men. Obama incentivized the idea of dragging minor children along on this dangerous journey (where many children are sexually assaulted) through his policy of “catch and release.”

Once word got out that illegals with small children would be let loose into America, the number of children crossing the border exploded.

[…]

The media do not want to inform Americans of one crucial fact: the dangers inherent in crossing the border from Mexico into America, most especially the dangers faced by minor children. Sadly, these dangers too often involve sexual abuse.

Decent people who truly care about these children, like President Trump, want to do everything in their power to end this abuse — either by building a wall, or through this zero tolerance policy that will hopefully curb this abusive practice.

Evil people want these children dragged across the border, want this abuse incentivized by “keeping the family unit together,” because  flooding the country with future indebted voters is more important to them than the safety and well-being of small children.

[…]

Because of “catch and release,” because of this dumb and destructive loophole carved out for families, the number of illegal aliens using children to enter the U.S. increased by 315 percent between October 2017 and February 2018.

[…]

Anything other than zero tolerance only serves as an incentive for human traffickers and other criminals to use these children as their free pass into America.
