Secretary Tillerson and Ivanka Trump Discuss Human Trafficking…

The U.S. State Department has released it’s 2017 ‘Trafficking in Persons Report” (TIP report), as annually mandated by U.S. law.   Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Senior Counselor to the President Ivanka Trump discuss the ongoing initiatives to combat human smuggling, sex trafficking and modern slavery.

You can read the full Trafficking in Persons Report HERE.

Human trafficking is one of the most tragic human rights issues of our time. It splinters families, distorts global markets, undermines the rule of law, and spurs other transnational criminal activity. It threatens public safety and national security.

But worst of all, the crime robs human beings of their freedom and their dignity. That’s why we must pursue an end to the scourge of human trafficking.

Today we take another key step towards that goal. The 2017 Trafficking in Persons Report highlights the successes achieved and the remaining challenges before us on this important global issue.

In particular, the introduction of this year’s Report focuses on the responsibility of governments to criminalize human trafficking and hold offenders accountable. To that end, this Report is intended to assist governments in identifying threats so law enforcement agencies around the world can respond effectively and gain insight into where human trafficking remains most severe. The Report will also equip local and sub-national law enforcement agencies to better assist in efforts to target and prosecute those who commit these terrible crimes.

Because human trafficking is global in scope, international partners are essential to success. That’s why the State Department will continue to establish positive partnerships with governments, civil society, law enforcement groups, and survivors to provide help for those who need our support.

The United States is a leader in the fight against human trafficking. We seek justice for victims and accountability for offenders. This Report is instrumental to our strategy to end human trafficking. I am proud of the work and dedication of the Department towards that end, and remain committed to the elimination of human trafficking here and abroad.

Sincerely,

Rex W. Tillerson
Secretary of State

      American Made Man,

      Although, we agree that this heinous crime against our children is an “incredibly important issue…” But, there is no way that the Left ‘Ignores’ human-sex trafficking of minors. Conversely, they are up to their eyeballs in PizzaGate (aka: Pedogate) with John Podesta as the Clinton’s favorite ‘delivery man’.

      But, we might be able to use your “virtually ignores…” term by the MSM after the Pedophile-In-Chief Podesta testifies to Congress, in a CLOSED DOOR HEARING. The closed-doors are because Congress is deathly afraid of what Pedo-John, who is now like a revengeful cornered rat, might testify against many of them, to get even…. No You won’t hear a word about Pedo-John’s testimony…

    This is where a commitment to results and not words would reap massive benefits for the future of the #MAGA effort. The left dutifully gave their annual speech this time of year because the law requires this report to be released. John Kerry telling us how terrible human trafficking is.

    How wonderful would it be if law enforcement over the next year could report multiple busts of slavery rings both in the US and worldwide so that next year’s report (in time for the midterms) could make clear that actions speak louder than words.

    (And yes, I realize the human lives involved far outweigh any political advantage discussed in my post. They obviously would be the greatest beneficiaries of a government that used it’s power and influence to actually HELP in ways they CAN help, as opposed to the meddling and tinkering with a million different economic or social regulations and nanny-state intentions)

    Human trafficking and child predators are major issues with attempted murder victim, Steve Scalise.

    WASHINGTON, D.C.— U.S. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) issued the following statement regarding the House of Representatives’ passage of the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act (S.178), which increases critical protections and services for victims of human trafficking:

    “One of the great American values we share is our strong belief in the inherent worth of each and every human life. Human trafficking is a direct assault against that core value, and it affects millions of victims who need our help—including right here in America,” Scalise said. 

    “No single law alone will put a stop to human trafficking, but the House’s passage of this bill, which now goes to the President’s desk, is a strong step forward in combatting this abhorrent crime.

    Congress must continue to do everything in our power to combat this scourge and provide protections, and ultimately justice to the victims of human trafficking.”

    https://www.majoritywhip.gov/news/press_releases_newsroom_supporting-justice-for-victims-of-human-trafficking/

    Praying for his ultimate recovery and being able to carry on his work with Sec. of State Tillerson to eradicate this scourge of human suffering.

    It is really mind blowing when you here some of the data pertaining to Human Trafficking.

    TREX shared some of the following:

    1) 20 million victims this past year in human trafficking
    2) NK has anywhere from 50,000 to 80,000 of their citizens forced to work in China and Russia. The citizens receive hardly any money but NK racks in hundreds of million dollars for their forced labor from those two countries
    3) Last year there were a total of 9,000 convictions of human trafficking crimes worldwide
    4) Afghanistan has a real terrible problem with young boys being trafficked for social & sexual entertainment (being done by police officers)
    5) Convictions of police officers. A teacher at a gov’t run boarding school was arrested for trying to sell a child
    6) In the Philippines there have been 500 trafficking cases and the arrest of 272 suspects (an increase of 80% from the previous year)
    7) The United States has developed a State Department initiative known as The Program To End Modern Slavery. They are hoping to raise $1.5 billion dollars from other countries and private donors

    Reading the linked State Department report, it came as no surprise that the countries that are all-in to combat this scourge are the Western, civilized countries, and the ones who basically aren’t participating, or are making a half-hearted effort are all of the countries in Africa, Asia – well, basically the rest of the world. I was surprised that Japan is not 100% in on this effort.

    I wish there was more information disseminated to Americans about this issue and how easily our own children can be sucked into being trafficked. After a family from our church had their daughter kidnapped by traffickers we learned what a big business this is here in the U.S. The FBI agents told the family that Facebook is pretty much used as a catalog for cretins who want to buy children and for traffickers looking for their next victims. This family’s 15-year old daughter posted some rather provocative selfies on her Facebook page, I suppose in an effort to attract boys from her school. Instead she came to the attention of Mexican traffickers in Atlanta looking for some young flesh to spirit away to Mexico and sell to the highest bidder. Because she posted her daily activities constantly on both Facebook and Twitter, she made it very easy for these guys to find her, give her a false sense of security then offer her a ride home. That “short ride” landed her in Mexico, strung out and turned out as a prostitute. Once she was across the border the FBI said there was nothing they could do, so the family hired a private investigator who found her a few months later, “kidnapped” her and brought her home.

    Parents need to be informed and reminded how dangerous Facebook, social media and, frankly, the internet can be for their kids.

      The problem with Michelle Obama is that her husband aid and abetted the traffickers by opening up the border to lawbreakers who would use it as enticement for S. American families to purchase a “ticket to America” for their young.Michelle had zero interest in helping keep children anywhere safe.She said full term baby abortions were a safe medical procedure. It is for the adult mother maybe, not for the vulnerable defenseless baby.

    News report that the prosecutors on the Jeffrey Epstein case were speaking out. I think child sex trafficking is a Globalist favorite for the rich. Too many rumors plus media black-out. Wonder how many of them subscribe? Hope we find out.

    I watched this whole ceremony and it brought tear to my eyes. Remember how I harangued everyone during the primaries? Telling everyone who would listen how the globalists wanted to destroy national identity, especially our American national identity with our Constitution and Bill of Rights. I think it was Jeff Sessions who I first heard use the term “corporate widgets”. I asked in comment after comment: as we begin exploring the universe are we going to into space as free men and women who are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights or as disposable corporate widgets?

    As I watched the ceremony I thought of all the slimy filth we learned about prominent people who exploit children and I have to say Rex Tillerson and Ivanka Trump looked like Archangels standing there. And I knew they were good and clean and could be trusted and had things well in hand.

    I am so grateful to God for president Trump and the magnificent people called to support him. I feel certain that we are going into our future as autonomous members of the human race.
