Which is worse? Children being detained at certified detention centers, or children being sex trafficked?

Who profits from international human smuggling and sex trafficking?

If You Dont Want to be Separated From Your Children Dont Cross the Border Illegally

The reason the media wants open borders is because they’re a part of a global corporate machine that profits from drugs and weapons smuggling, and from human smuggling and sex trafficking….

What about sex trafficking?
“Sex trafficking is a $99 billion a year industry.”
“4.5 million people are victims of sex trafficking. The average age is 15, but 20% of sex trafficking victims are children.”

And what about human smuggling?
“2.5 million people were smuggled in 2016, for an estimated profit of $7 billion.”

Where does all of that profit go?

Does it all stay as billions of dollars in cash?

No. It gets laundered by global banks, and is in turn funneled to complicit politicians…

The law that separates children from smugglers was on the books since 2002. The law states how unaccompanied minors and minors being smuggled by smugglers should be detained and moved into foster parenting or kept in certified centers…

In 2014 Obama announced that they would no longer enforce the law and would allow undocumented, illegal border crossers to not be immediately deported…

Since the Obama executive branch stopped enforcing the law, child smuggling and illegal border crossings increased to emergency levels..
“The Obama administration last year initially blamed bad economies and growing gang violence in Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala for sparking the surge, but later acknowledged that human traffickers were marketing the journey by pointing out a loophole in U.S. immigration system that requires non-Mexican children to be released into the U.S. while they await final immigration decisions. That gives them a chance to abscond and disappear into the shadows with the more than 11 million other illegal immigrants in the country.”

The law, if properly applied, is to NOT separate children from families that seek asylum and cross the border LEGALLY…
“Children continue to be released to their relatives or to shelters. But since the zero-tolerance policy took effect, parents as a rule are being prosecuted.”

But there has been a rise in people falsely claiming to be relatives of smuggled children…
“…a growing number of cases, illegal immigrants who aren’t even related to the children are showing up and fraudulently claiming to be families.Homeland Security recorded 191 cases of children having to be separated because of fraudulent family claims during the first five months of fiscal year 2018. That already eclipses the 46 cases reported for all of 2017.”

Should people crossing the border illegally not be prosecuted?
Should children being smuggled across the border illegally be put in jail with the adults that smuggled them?

How much should we encourage illegal entries when we know that they are fueling an illegal industry of human smuggling, sex trafficking and drug and gun smuggling?
