Townhall reports that democrats profit off the border crisis and human trafficking:

“The same Democrats who paint themselves as belonging to the pro-immigrant, humanitarian party are championing cruel policies that have left nearly five hundred thousand immigrant children separated from their parents and vulnerable to human trafficking and sexual abuse. Why would they change the status quo when they are getting rich exploiting it?

“Amid the last border crisis in 2014, when staggering numbers of UACs, or Unaccompanied Alien Children, were being smuggled across the border from Latin America, then-Vice President Joe Biden told the press he was “greatly concerned by the startling number of… children and teenagers who are making a very perilous journey through Central America to reach the United States.. between 75 and 80 percent — rely on very dangerous, not-nice, human-smuggling networks that transport them through Central America and Mexico to the United States.”

“Biden, along with then-President Obama, supported changing the law to give those children the same treatment as UACs from Canada and Mexico. Under the proposed change, instead of allowing children from non-contiguous countries to go through the entire process of seeking asylum without any parents or guardians, they would be quickly screened and returned home to their families. In addition to reuniting children and parents, the changes would deter UACs from making the trip in the first place and greatly reduce the prevalence of human trafficking.”
