Zero tolerance for human trafficking

While much attention has been given to the immigration crisis at the Southern border, little notice has been given to the tens of thousands of women and children trafficked there every day.  In her latest Feisty & Feminine column at Newsmax, Concerned Women for America CEO and President Penny Nance points out that January was human trafficking awareness month, but politicians were nowhere to be seen on the issue.

“Seventy-two percent of human trafficking victims in the U.S. are immigrants. In 2023 —147,000 unaccompanied migrant children entered the U.S.; that’s 12,000 children per month. Why are these children crossing the border alone? Where are their parents? The drug smugglers, transnational criminal organizations, or single, adult males step into that role and soon use and abuse them to get across the border and make money.” 

It is time for zero tolerance for this heinous activity and strategies to end this human tragedy.
