The Federal Branch Institutionalizes Human Trafficking

When a government engages lawlessness, the powerful must be confronted and brought to account.  When the Federal branch institutionalizes human trafficking of an uneducated peasant class of children, ugly truth must be addressed.  The federal branch is aiding the creation of a future social strata of cheap labor. This is a form of soft slavery. This action is immoral. And yet it is a policy which is being aggressively pursued by the current U.S. administration.

The U.S. State Department releases a yearly “Trafficking in Persons Report”.  The tenth edition includes a forward written by Hillary Rodham Clinton.

“I am pleased to celebrate and reflect upon the last decade of progress identifying and fighting the phenomenon of modern slavery…This annual assessment is an opportunity to diagnose the world’s efforts to implement the “3P” paradigm of prevention, protection, and prosecution… Ending this global scourge is an important policy priority for the United States.”

Quoting from the body of the report, “According to the Palermo Protocol, repatriation of trafficking victims should preferably be voluntary and done with the victim’s safety in mind. Many governments, believing they are acting in the victims’ best interests, make concerted efforts to return victims to their countries of origin as quickly as possible.”

So let’s take a look at the “3P” paradigm and examine how the federal branch is embarking on a subtle course to institutionalize human trafficking whilst *cloaking their deeds in darkness, and *attempting to deceive the American public.


Prevention went out the window when President Obama initiated the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program.  More commonly known as the DREAM act, the 112th Congress declined to enact the statute. The President did not choose to issue an Executive Order. He surreptitiously created a wedge policy by directing Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano to draft guidance on applying “prosecutorial discretion” toward younger immigrants lacking legal status. Then he put out the welcome mat. The dynamic of what has  transpired is best expressed by journalist Cameron Smith in an opinion piece written in July.  “With this action, the Obama Administration structurally changed immigration law by awkwardly attempting to shoehorn an agency-wide enforcement change under the purview of individual discretion outlined by Napolitano’s directive.”

“If you build it, they will come,” has a twin. If you implode it (a suite of laws) they will also come.

Here is the crux of the matter. Americans are strongly humanitarian. But human rights  must never be allowed to trump  civil law and national sovereignty. Human rights is the latest political tool being wielded in the battle between the “haves” and the “have nots”. Unfortunately, the vast majority of the world reside in the “have not” category.  Primarily, this remains an issue of poor governance. But American taxpayers can no longer shoulder the financial burden for the hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants who  stream across our borders.


Parents remain the strongest source of protection for children.  This model is not by accident. It is by Divine design. The vast majority of children streaming across our borders are coming from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.  Within these caravans, are also women and small children. But unaccompanied minors are arriving by the thousands each month. They are not orphans. Simple question.  Can a child walk thousands of miles alone, ford rivers, climb mountains, or much less, plan a travel itinerary?  The children are being transported to the United States by human traffickers.  Second question.  How many of these children survive the trip without being raped?  Third question.  Why are the children not released into the custody of staff from their national embassy to be repatriated with their parents? Instead, the federal branch is warehousing the children. They are dropping older children off with a pat on the back and a letter written with disappearing ink reminding them to show up for an immigration hearing at a later date.

On January 29th, 2014, the Department of Homeland Security posted a job listing (Solicitation Number: BERKS-RFI) for “Escort Services for Unaccompanied Alien Children”.  Why are we institutionalizing the trafficking of children on U.S. soil? We have laws against transporting unaccompanied minors across  state lines.


There is no such thing as enforcement of our laws when those tasked with guarding our borders are  reduced to functioning as untrained nannies. There is no such thing as prosecution because our military bases have been degraded to miniaturized IDP (internally displaced persons) camps for illegal immigrant populations. The use of military personnel to care for unaccompanied minors seems a violation of the oath of office. The oath, is to protect and defend against enemies foreign and domestic. The oath, is not to aid the federal branch in breaking the laws of the land.

The government is loading children onto aircraft, making them run to awaiting buses, and seeking to quietly house them in multiple states.  My own residential neighborhood already has two homes which are ghost dormitories for illegal immigrant males.  How long until  a residence becomes a federal ghost dormitory for a dozen children? Immigration officials dumped hundreds of women and children in Arizona without notification to the governor’s office.

Americans are awakening to a new reality.  We are Americans by default. Those who violate our laws receive greater respect and more generous rights.  In lawful manner we use  freedom of expression to show our displeasure for the federal branch violating our immigration laws. Non-violent citizens are blocking the buses. Communities are refusing to harbor the children.  Americans are not inhumane. We take in many immigrants each year but we want it to be done legally. We utterly despise  the federal branch for trafficking children.

They are coming in trafficked bundles of 1,200 children per week. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson projects 90,000 children by October. They create a  future class of low-wage stoop labour. They are also being absorbed into the vast federal network of entitlement plantations. Cheap labour, life-time taxpayer burden, corporate America’s unique poker chip. This is lawlessness.
