Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivered the Trafficking in Persons report, Human trafficking in America among worst in world

The United States is again ranked as one of the worst countries in the world for human trafficking. According to a recently released report by the State Department, the top three nations of origin for victims of human trafficking in 2018 were the United States, Mexico and the Philippines.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivered the Trafficking in Persons report, which is created annually by the State Department to document human trafficking in the year prior, and highlighted the growing focus that government agencies and nonprofit organizations have dedicated to stopping human trafficking. The Department of Justice provided more than $31 million for 45 victim service providers that offered services to trafficking survivors across the country. It was a demonstrable increase; the DOJ only provided $16 million to 18 organizations in 2017, according to the report.

At the heart of the human trafficking trade in America is simple economics: Supply and demand.

Over the last two months, Fox News has investigated human trafficking. We followed the enforcement efforts of FBI agents and police officers, documented the ways advocacy groups protect and serve survivors, and heard heart-wrenching stories of abuse, rape and recovery from numerous victims.

"The United States is the number one consumer of sex worldwide. So we are driving the demand as a society."

It never ceases to amaze me.  Authorities can tell us how many people are trafficked and from where to where, but just can't seem to put a finger on the people doing the trafficking.  Look, I have a theory, it's mine alone and it's simply a thought provocateur.  Follow the money!  There is a reason that so many politicians want the borders to remain open.  Has it ever occurred to law enforcement that money funneled too and from politicians cause the authorities to somehow lose track of the traffickers, or somehow look the other way, oh, you know for just a second or two while the money changes hands.  If anyone honestly thinks that Leftists are just truly concerned about the welfare of so-called immigrants and their plight, then gullibility is rampant in this nation.  Don't doubt me on this, if there is money to be made, then there are crooked politicians willing to be on the ground floor of this despicable enterprise.  Be it drugs, human trafficking, Coyotes scamming Illegals, or simply destroying this Republic, there will be a money trail.  I just wonder what agency is willing to follow it to the city and town halls, state capitols and yes, the Washington, D.C. "Culpable, Corrupt Cooperative", better known as U.S. Congress.  Keep the borders open, really, why???
