    Sanctuary City policies encourage human trafficking of illegal aliens and whether mayors, supervisors and complicit law enforcement officers are also complicit in those crimes? Every time the issue of illegal aliens or deportation comes up, the Left, argues against something they know isn’t going to happen. But the reason the Left always brings the conversation to the line, “how are you going to round up and deport 15 million undocumented immigrants?” is not to get an answer, It is to get you to feel bad for even thinking about deporting anyone. Because they know it isn’t going to happen the...

    Private investigator says evidence suggests a brutal cartel kidnapped and tortured California mom Recently freed California mom Sherri Papini who was tortured and branded by her captors was likely the victim of a kidnapping gone awry by a Mexican sex-trafficking ring, according to a private investigator who worked on the case. The case seems to underline how America’s porous borders enable criminals and other bad elements to enter the United States seeking victims. Mexican crime syndicates have become more active north of the border in recent years. The Redding area in Northern California has become an important corridor for sex...

    Much has been made about pedophilia and child trafficking rings lately. Most of it has been difficult to prove and many internet sleuths on Reddit and Twitter have crossed the line that separates libel from truth, but that doesn't mean that pedophilia and politics haven't gone hand-in-hand before. Disturbing investigations around the world have linked high ranking officials, politicians and aristocrats to pedophilia, child pornography and trafficking rings in the past. In the 1980s, a member of the British parliament named Geoffrey Dickens claimed that pedophilia and child trafficking were rampant within the corridors of power in the UK. His...

But as First Lady, she was responsible for a law that has done exactly that. Most recent media attention regarding Hillary Clinton's many corrupt activities, even from conservative sources, has focused on Hillary's criminal misconduct related to her illegal deletion of government emails, her corrupt Clinton Foundation "charity", and the massive corruption revealed in emails published by WikiLeaks.

    Immigration only made a brief cameo in Monday night’s debate, but Donald Trump managed to once again falsely connect immigrants to crime.In response to a question on race relations in America, Trump said:“We have gangs roaming the street. And in many cases, they’re illegally here, illegal immigrants. And they have guns. And they shoot people. And we have to be very strong. And we have to be very vigilant.”No matter how researchers slice the data, though, the numbers show that immigrants commit fewer crimes than native-born Americans. But that’s not good enough for Trump’s followers. They firmly believe immigrants make...

    A proposal allowing Utah to execute someone convicted of human trafficking even if the criminal didn't actually kill the person would be unjust, costly and likely unconstitutional, opponents of the death penalty argued Tuesday. The bill from Rep. Paul Ray, R-Clearfield, would make human trafficking a capital crime in Utah if the victim dies. Under current state law, someone convicted of trafficking that results in a victim's death faces five years to life in prison. Ray said trafficking is a terrible crime, and the state has to do something to try and deter it. [...] The American Civil Liberties Union...

U.S. and Mexican officials both point to a town in central Mexico that for years has been a major source of human trafficking rings and a place where victims are taken before being eventually forced into prostitution.

    ... Although Trump glibly describes "Operation Wetback" as moving undocumented immigrants "waaay south," this program was at best inhumane and at worst horrific. Back then, the government rounded up suspected undocumented immigrants and sent them deep into the Mexican interior, where they were abandoned with next to nothing. The transports across the border were reportedly "indescribable scenes of human misery and tragedy." In one instance, 88 deportees died from heat stroke in the desert. Other deportees were sent to the Mexican Gulf Coast by ship, in vessels described by historians as an "eighteenth century slave ship" or "penal hell ship."...

    MARION, Ohio (AP) — The thousand-mile journey to the Texas border was supposed to bring the Guatemalan teenagers to a better life. Instead, it was the beginning of a terrible ordeal: prosecutors say they were fraudulently plucked from U.S. custody by conspirators posing as friends or family who forced them to work as virtual slaves. As the country's immigration system was being overwhelmed by an unprecedented flow of unaccompanied children fleeing unrest in Central America, prosecutors said one of their countrymen orchestrated the scheme to force them to work on egg farms in Ohio. U.S. immigration policy dictates that unaccompanied...

    The Muslim jihadists running ISIS already have been documented shooting, drowning, burning, crucifying, beheading, raping and blowing up victims. And they’ve been suspected of trafficking in human organs in the past. Now, a new report cites social media conversations that appear to tie sex slavery to organ trafficking. The Middle East Media Research Institute cited social media reports in which “ISIS fighters and supporters openly discuss” not only sex slaves and “the going prices for them” but also “other issues relating to them – such as possible trafficking in human organs.’ The report explains: “On Sept. 3, 2014, prior...

Another 33 Thai trawlers thought to be crewed by slaves are being tracked in fishing grounds off the south coast of Papua New Guinea, known locally as the Dog Leg. The trawlers are thought to be...

    A draft UN report has revealed that UN peacekeepers routinely flout a ban of the international organization and pay for sex with money, dresses, jewelry, perfume, cell phones and other items in a flagrant exploitation of poverty-stricken populations they are meant to protect. Reuters received a copy of the draft report, which was conducted by the UN Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS), and detailed how UN forces bought the sexual services of hundreds of women in Haiti and Liberia who said they were forced to sell their bodies due to hunger and poverty. "Evidence from two peacekeeping mission countries...

    The U.N. peacekeepers arrive; months later, some leave infants behind. Now the United Nations has quietly started to offer DNA testing to help prove paternity claims and ensure support for the so-called “peacekeeper babies.” It’s a delicate step, as countries that contribute U.N. troops might not welcome a practice that could prove not only fatherhood but wrongdoing. Of the dozen paternity claims received last year, four were associated with alleged sexual abuse of a minor.The new effort comes a decade after a groundbreaking report on sexual abuse and exploitation by peacekeepers suggested that the U.N. secretary-general be authorized to “require...
