Human Trafficking is So Bad in America That President Trump Just Created a New Official Position to Stop It
By: Phillip Schneider
Human trafficking has become so pervasive in America that Donald Trump created an entirely new position to tackle it. The practice has been swept under a rug for far too long in politics, underneath partisan issues like racism, gender equality, and politics-as-usual.
The White House estimates as many as 24.9 million victims of human trafficking around the globe. These unfortunate individuals are typically female and about a quarter of them are children. The top US states for incidents of human trafficking are California, Texas, and Florida, and are many times greater than any other state. It’s not surprising that two of the three are located at the border.
By a new executive order, President Trump signed into law on Friday a new position specifically designed to fight the onslaught of human trafficking that plagues America today. The statute brings various government departments together, including the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Justice Department, and the Department of Education to fight human traffickers and prevent the practice from happening in the United States.
“From funding for prevention education programs, to enhanced intelligence-level coordination, to fighting child pornography, to a new full-time position within his White House’s Domestic Policy Council, the president is using all tools at his disposal to ensure that the end of modern-day slavery becomes a reality.” – Ivanka Trump
Democrat and Republican presidents both have a history of fighting human trafficking, but never fully addressing the true scale of the problem. Donald Trump is the only president who’s been willing to push this issue into the forefront of daily conversation, where it rightfully belongs.
The Trump administration has published multiple reports of their accomplishments in fighting human trafficking. During his time in office, nine human trafficking victims were appointed to an advisory council, January 2018 was declared “National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month”, border security has been drastically improved, and the President signed several executive orders to help fund the prevention human trafficking.
Some critics of Trump argue that increased border security and restrictions on illegal immigration and refugees aids human traffickers by discouraging victims to come forward out of a fear of legal action against them.
But the truth is that human trafficking happens within all avenues of human life. Plenty of otherwise “ordinary” people are involved with human trafficking, but this disgusting practice goes all the way up to the highest levels of government. The most recent example is sex predator Jeffrey Epstein, who took Bill Clinton and many other high-profile politicians to his private ‘orgy’ island and allegedly providing them with sexual favors from underage girls.
David Icke has been detailing the child sex abuse that has gone on within the British royal family and political elites for decades. He was laughed at in his early years, but now that this information has gone viral, even in mainstream news, he’s been vindicated, and another so-called conspiracy theory is now mainstream fact.
As both low-level traffickers and many political elites continue this abhorrent practice with unmatched arrogance, let’s hope that Trump is true in his effort to eradicate human trafficking.
“I want to make it clear today that my administration will focus on ending the absolutely horrific practice of human trafficking and I am prepared to bring the full force and weight of our government … In order to solve this horrific problem.” – President Trump, Feb. 23, 2017
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
