As anyone who read the ClashNews ‘Early Edition’ feature (Fri Feb 17 edition) will already be aware of, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd has once again been a busy guy.
The aptly-named ‘Operation Traffic Stop’ resulted in 213 arrests, including those buying sex, selling sex, as well as those profiting from the work of others.
Local police worked in connection with other agencies specializing in victims of sex trafficking.
Here is part of his announcement.
“Not only did we arrest more suspects during this single operation than we have ever arrested before, we identified 24 human trafficking victims – the highest number of victims we’ve ever rescued during one of these investigations,” said Sheriff Judd. “The valuable relationships that we have with the social services organizations who join us in these operations make it possible for these women to get help and be emancipated from this way of life.”
Of the 111 sex workers arrested, 24 were identified as possible human trafficking victims, with 14 of them being migrants from Cuba and Mexico. Some of the victims claimed that they were forced into prostitution to pay off debts owed to those who smuggled them into the country, with their families being threatened if they refused. –Breaking911
Let’s turn our full attention to a very specific part of that announcement.
Of the 111 sex workers arrested, 24 were identified as possible human trafficking victims, with 14 of them being migrants from Cuba and Mexico. Some of the victims claimed that they were forced into prostitution to pay off debts owed to those who smuggled them into the country, with their families being threatened if they refused.
There are fewer than one million people in Polk County, and yet a single week-long sting was able to emancipate 14 poor souls caught up in sexual slavery.
There are two factors to consider in this story. First, is how the victims got caught up in the modern slavery that is sex trafficking. The second is what this says about Biden’s policies more generally.
How they were enslaved
Every person that illegally enters America across the Mexican border has to do business with the Cartels. If they have money they pay money. If they don’t, they pay in favors. If they fail to provide favors in payment cartels threaten harm to family members.
The full range of favors owed to the criminal cartels once they have arrived in America are beyond the scope of this article, and fuel for speculation. The cartel’s lucrative fentanyl probably plays some role in the payback of those favors.
But we do know that at some of that repayment is recouped through sexual servitude.
The Bigger Picture
Democrats, and their media enablers, have used bumper-sticker slogans and willful ignorance to downplay the story of Biden’s Broken Border.
Record numbers of people coming in illegally isn’t a ‘bug’ for their way of thinking, it’s a ‘feature’. We can prove this by the fact that the last budget was explicitly forbidden to spend any of the federal dollars on ENFORCEMENT side of border patrol functions. That perfectly aligns with what was written in a leaked 2018 memo by Hillary’s comms director about needing Illegal Immigration to bolster their election prospects now and into the future.
They looked the other way when criminal cartels made gazillions from smuggling more than 5 million people across the border… and they asked no questions about the people victimized by those insanely violent cartels.
Even now, federal Dems are refusing to take the border seriously.
Graveyards of John and Jane Does have been filling up in border towns. Morgues use mobile fridges to keep up. And those that survive?
One County of 700k mananged to identify 14 migrant victims in a single week. How many more are out there in Polk county?
How many are out there in the rest of America?
And do Democrats and the media care more about the answer to that question than they do about their side winning the next election?
