(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- In September 2020, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law a bill that reduces penalties for adults who have sex with minors as young as fourteen as long as the adult in within ten years older than the minor. Specifically, the law gives judges the discretion on deciding whether or not the adult should be required to register as a sex offender.
This despite the fact that the state of California is the second worst state for human trafficking in the United States.
The bill was introduced by radical progressive State Senator Scott Wiener, who was also responsible for the California law decriminalizing knowingly transmitting HIV to another person.
In early July, the US Department of Homeland Security announced that it had rescued 31 individuals during a recent human trafficking operation in Missouri and Kansas. Seventeen of those rescued were adults, another fourteen were missing children – including one as young as four years old.
The surge in illegal aliens crossing the southern border has also brought a surge in child trafficking. And while Kamala Harris pretends to be on a hunt for the “root causes” of the border crisis, children are being exploited.
According to the Human Trafficking Institute, drug addicts, runaways and illegal aliens are the three top targets of sex and forced labor traffickers. But the majority of prosecutions in 2020 involved sex trafficking.
The vast majority (92%) were women, 62% of whom were young girls. Of the 8% who were male, the vast majority (6%) were boys. For these child victims, 63% were runaways and 22% were from the foster care system.
A San Diego-based non-profit group “Saved in America” is working to get these children out of the hands of traffickers. Working with law enforcement and parents, “Saved in America” helps to track down and locate these missing, runaway and exploited children.
Last Friday on One America News, Alicia Summers spoke with “Saved in America” Advisory Board member Stephanie Myers about the organization’s efforts to combat child sex trafficking in the US and to get those children home.
