The White House Says It’s Finally Going to Get Serious About Stopping Human Traffickers

Sometimes even progressives can’t hide from the truth. Their lies and avoidance only go so far and then a problem becomes 100 times bigger, staring them in the face and demanding action. 

That’s what’s happening now on the southern border of this country:

Thousands of unaccompanied minor kids and shelters at over 1,600% above capacity. 

Illegal aliens streaming in with up to 80% not even apprehended by border patrol. 

Human smugglers making record profits trafficking drugs and humans, even throwing babies over the border fence to force US authorities to rescue them. 

Now the Biden Administration finally says it’s about to crack down for real…

Introducing Operation Sentinel

The White House says it is now launching Operation Sentinel. The mission? To reduce and stop cross-border human trafficking and the criminals who profit from it. Current Department of Homeland Security (DHS) head Alejandro Mayorkas said that the operation will hit traffickers where it hurts for as long and as hard as it takes. 

“We know all too well that these organizations put profit over human life with devastating consequences,” Mayorkas said. 

“With the help of our federal and foreign partners, we aim to cut off access to that profit by denying these criminal organizations, the ability to engage in travel trade and finance in the United States.”

The US will do this by going after every financial and other avenue that traffickers use.

“We intend to disrupt every facet of the logistical network that these organizations use to succeed. Operation Sentinel will focus on disrupting the transnational criminal organizations that smuggle migrants into the United States,” Mayorkas said. 

Why is This Happening Now?

Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection Troy Miller echoed Mayorkas’ words, saying “Smuggling operations continue to lie & exploit vulnerable populations to promote their criminal enterprise—migrants’ health & safety doesn’t influence their lucrative ambition. This operation is designed to disrupt every facet of the logistical network of these criminal orgs.”

Biden and his administration clearly aren’t really serious about stopping traffickers. This is a public relations stunt to pretend they are responding to the kind of monsters who drop toddlers over high fences. 

The kids who were dropped over – 3 and 5 years-old – did survive but they horrified people. But Miller says that border patrol has had to rescue 4,766 migrants since October who got ditched by smugglers in the middle of nowhere.

Another video of a young boy lost in the desert left by smugglers also shocked and saddened people. 

Human traffickers are the kind of monsters who will murder an entire family for unpaid prices of smuggling, so people should realize that when President Trump called MS-13 and smugglers “animals” he was actually being nice.

Human traffickers and cartel operatives are subhuman scum who need to be eliminated at all costs.

They are parasites and murderers with no respect for human life. Those who do get across the border have a tracking number linked to a bank account and have to pay back every single cent to the human garbage who got them across.

Many of those who are taken by smugglers are sold into low-paid farm labor or sex trafficking, drug production and other illegal activities that are making this country a worse – and more dangerous – place.

Only last week border patrol came across a stash house in McAllen where there were 43 illegal immigrants and a kid being held until their families could pay up. 

The grip of the cartels needs to be forcefully removed with as much devastating force as necessary and then some extra to show them that the United States of America means business and will crush them down to their last member.

Is Operation Sentinel going to work? Maybe it will make a small dent in interrupting some bank accounts and arresting a few pieces of trash, but until someone gets serious about shutting the border down and stopping the flow of people these traffickers are going to continue doing business.
