from Humans Are Free:
This past Friday (June 26, 2020) US District Judge Dolly Gee ordered the release of migrant children who are currently being held in ICE family residential centers, due to fears of COVID-19 spreading.
While this may sound like a good thing on the surface, it is not. Judge Gee only ordered that the children be released, but not their parents or adult family members. She left the decision to release adult family members of the children up to ICE.
This is a peculiar ruling, given that children have almost a ZERO chance of dying from COVID, while older adults with pre-existing conditions are most at risk.
So if the children’s parents or other adult family members are not released, where will the children go?
They are to go to “non-congregate settings” that include “suitable sponsors.” This is basically the foster care system, which we know is the main pipeline for supplying child sex slaves in child trafficking.
Children coming across the border with no birth certificates and other documentation are ripe for child trafficking, and this was highlighted in a 2016 report by U.S. Senator Rob Portman which showed just how widespread this is.
His Senate report noted several “Systemic Deficiencies” in the government’s failure to protect these vulnerable children from organized criminal trafficking:
- HHS’s Process for Verifying a Category 3 Sponsor’s Identity and Relationship with a UAC Is Unreliable and Subject to Abuse
- HHS Is Unable to Safeguard Children from Sponsors Attempting to Accumulate Multiple Children
- HHS Failed to Require Background Checks on Non-Sponsor Adult Household Members or on Backup Sponsors
- HHS Policy Allowed Non-Relatives with Criminal Histories to Sponsor Children
- HHS Does Not Ensure a Sponsor Has Adequate Income to Support a UAC
- HHS Approves Placements with Sponsors Who May Not Remain in the Country
- Sponsors Often Inflict Legal Harm on UACs by Not Ensuring Their Appearance At Immigration Proceedings
So these migrant children in ICE family residential centers were already in the safest place they could possibly be, but now due to a federal district judge they could potentially be released and enter the lucrative child trafficking network, all under the excuse of “protecting them” from COVID-19.
We have also previously reported how COVID is being used as an excuse to take American children away from their parents.
In another bad news report for child sex trafficking, it was reported that the top attorney representing victims of Jeffrey Epstein’s child sex trafficking crimes was fired last week. Matt Agorist reports:
Geoffrey Berman, the powerful US attorney for the Southern District of New York has been the lead investigator into the Jeffrey Epstein child sex trafficking case since before the billionaire’s suspicious suicide.
However, this friend of President Donald Trump who contributed to his campaign, was surreptitiously removed from his post by Attorney General William Barr — who falsely claimed Berman “resigned.”
Now, the lawyer for several of Epstein’s victims, Spencer Kuvin, is speaking out about the “highly suspect” removal of the top attorney.
He is speculating that Trump or one of his staff may have asked Berman to stop investigating Prince Andrew over his ties to the billionaire pedophile and then fired him when he refused.
As the Guardian points out, Berman and the Duke of York have become embroiled in a series of public rows over what the US prosecutor alleges is his refusal to answer questions in their investigation into allegations of sex trafficking and other crimes against Epstein.
This has put a target on Berman’s back by the ones who continue to protect those involved in the elite child trafficking scandal.
In a scathing interview, Kuvin told The Sun Berman’s firing was a massive step backward in the progress they’ve made for obtaining justice for the victims.
“The timing of this is highly suspect for an internal favor having been requested by the President,” Kuvin told The Sun.
“Because we know that the investigation and requests for repeated interviews with Prince Andrew ramped up in just the past month. And now all of a sudden the one man that’s been pushing for those requests has been fired for no reason.” (Source)
