Immigrants so desperate to come to America are in many cases victims of perople promising freedom for large sums of money.
As President Trump declared January as National Slavery and Human Trafficking Awareness month, human trafficking is rocketing out of site.
Strict immigration policies make immigrants an easy target for human traffickers to exploit their victims. Detention centers, family separation, and threat of ICS raids make it easier to entrap the vulnerable.
I don’t mean paying $500 for a one way ticket, no thousands. They make false promises of jobs in the US. Deceived and desperate, vulnerable people place their trust in a person promising security and stability, only to find the horror that awaits them when they cross the border. NO refunds.
Our country needs humane immigration policies that help eliminate human trafficking, not encourage it.
