The Trump Administration and Human Trafficking
 
The Trump administration has deliberately set a policy to separate parents from their children at the borders in order to discourage families from trying to enter the USA. They've done a great job of terrorizing these families, but they haven't done as good a job of keeping track of the children they take away from their parents. They've lost track of nearly 1,500 children after forcibly removing those children from their parents.

Trump does a lot of shameful things. This may be the worst of all.

Taco John started multiple threads about "Pizzagate" on this site, and he repeated over and over a bogus claim that Hillary Clinton was involved in child sex trafficking.

Now we see who the REAL traffickers are. It's the Trump administration.

1,475 Disappeared Children
From The American Conservative

The Arizona Republic writer E.J. Montini has a story that is so horrible that it can’t be true … can it? Yes, it’s true.

The Trump administration recently announced a new, get-tough policy that will separate parents from their children if the family is caught crossing the border illegally.

It was a big news story. So big it overshadowed the fact that the federal government has lost – yes, lost – 1,475 migrant children in its custody.
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told Congress that within 48 hours of being taken into custody the children are transferred to the Department of Health and Human Services, which finds places for them to stay.

The Office of Refugee Resettlement reported at the end of 2017 that of the 7,000-plus children placed with sponsored individuals, the agency did not know where 1,475 of them were.

Last month, PBS’s Frontline reported that some of these children were released by the feds into the hands of human traffickers.

In 2014, at least 10 trafficking victims, including eight minors, were discovered during a raid by federal and local law enforcement in Portman’s home state of Ohio. As FRONTLINE examined in the recent documentary Trafficked in America, HHS had released several minors to the traffickers. The committee said the case was due to policies and procedures that were “inadequate to protect the children in the agency’s care.”

After unaccompanied minors arrive in the United States, often to reunite with family members or to flee violence or poverty in their home countries, they are typically transferred from border patrol or customs officers to the custody of HHS, which often reunites the minors with a relative or another sponsor. The department is supposed to place check-in phone calls 30 days after a minor’s placement, but during the hearing, Wagner acknowledged gaps in that system.

In an interview with FRONTLINE for Trafficked in America, Portman said that HHS cannot ignore its responsibility for unaccompanied minors.

“We’ve got these kids,” he said. “They’re here. They’re living on our soil. And for us to just, you know, assume someone else is going to take care of them and throw them to the wolves, which is what HHS was doing, is flat-out wrong. I don’t care what you think about immigration policy, it’s wrong.”

Nearly 1,500 kids, disappeared. I agree with Sen. Portman: no matter what you think of US immigration policy, this is horrifying.

Why is this not a massive scandal? We’re talking children here. I suppose that’s one way to guarantee that people don’t try to cross the border illegally with their children: tell them that the US government will take their kids away, and oops, might even lose them, or even hand them off to human traffickers.

We can’t stand for this, America.

I imagine this is probably the first time most of the right wingers on this site have heard this story, as this is not a story that Faux News is likely to cover (unless they are trying to blame this on the Democrats, as Trump has already done).

They should blame it on dems. If we didn't have open borders, this wouldn't happen.

Hey Mongo,</br></br> Do you remember that guy RandelFlag you called a ranting, crazy old man? I bet he knows a lot more about this from real life, on the job experience than some article you searched for on the intraweb from his career before he retired.</br></br> But, that wouldn't fit your narrative now would it sweetheart?</br></br>When you sign up to be a libtard is there a waiver on self-respect you have to sign?</br></br>It's SHOEZZZzz dropping time folks! Mongo is on the case!

Lex will be along to explain how that, too, is Trump's fault.

I wonder how long these morons will keep crying "but trump" before they're able to put into correlation why "racist" holds no exchangeability any longer.</br></br>The butthurt is amazing.

Watching a few of them slip further and further into insanity is a joy. Lex went from someone who was generally at least capable of maintaining a conversation to someone's who's essentially a drooling idiot flinging his own feces at passersby.

I don't know if I've seen you have a productive conversation on this forum yet.

What's interesting is that the 1,475 children whose location they were unable to determine was from the results of a phone call campaign. This is apparently new under Trump, there was no such follow-up under Obama or any previous administrations. If we follow the same rules, we could say that 100% of the unaccompanied minors were lost under Obama.
