The Department of Justice has been moving in silence.
The DOJ is facing criticism after quietly removing sections related to international and domestic sex trafficking of minors and to child victims of prostitution.
Jaco Booyens, who works to rescue trafficking victims joins Sara Gonzales to discuss the shady move.
“There’s so much to be said,” Booyens comments, continuing, “there’s zero conspiracy here.”
“We rescued three children in the last 10 days in Dallas, Texas. American kids are the number one type of child that’s being trafficked — even more than migrant children,” he adds.
While American children are in danger, the recently released hit film "Sound of Freedom" brought attention to international sex trafficking — and raised further questions about border security and the safety of these children.
“It’s placed a lot of pressure on the border. This is 100% a border move,” Booyens explains.
“To tell the American people, ‘It’s a lie, it’s conspiracy, nothing to see here, our border is secure; we’re so confident that kids are not being sold for sex across our border that we’re going to lower the prioritization level of this.’”
Booyens believes that while there are many other reasons the Biden administration would react to the film by lowering the prioritization level of international sex trafficking, the number one reason remains the border.
“Yes, they are covering for their buddies. And yes, many of their friends are in it, and buy children for sex — but it’s bigger than that. It’s got to do with the security of our border.”
