Is Anyone Protecting The Children?

On Monday, PJ Media reported the following:

The Biden administration admitted in a letter to Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) that it has lost track of nearly 20,000 unaccompanied migrant children since January 2021.

“Of the 108,981 Safety and Well-Being Calls conducted since January 2021 for children discharged from ORR care, there are 19,726 sponsors who could not be reached,” reads the letter from Acting Assistant Secretary Jennifer Cannistra of Administration for Children and Families at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

And they have no plans to look for them.

“While ORR’s custodial responsibilities end when a child is released from ORR care, ORR provides post-release services for children and sponsors who would benefit from ongoing connections to community services,” the letter sent to Biggs on February 24 reads. “Although ORR has no legal custody after a child is discharged, ORR does follow-up by phone.”

“It took HHS 5 months to respond to my letter and admit that they’ve lost track of nearly 20,000 unaccompanied alien children. More troubling, they don’t seem that worried about it,” Biggs tweeted.

The problem here is that many of these children will wind up being sex trafficked.

The article concludes:

Under Obama and Biden, the Office of Refugee Resettlement, “failed to do proper background checks of adults who claimed the children, allowed sponsors to take custody of multiple unrelated children, and regularly placed children in homes without visiting the locations.”

What happened to all the children lost by Biden? Have they been sex trafficked? It’s highly possible that many have, and with the Biden administration feeling no sense of responsibility for the safety of these children, I dare say we’ll never know just how many. But it happened under the Obama-Biden administration, and so it’s safe to say that it’s happening now under the Biden-Harris administration. In fact, journalist Heather Robinson predicted back in April 2021 that Biden’s border policies would increase the sex trafficking of children.

The Biden administration’s border policy is a disgrace. What is even more of a disgrace is that Congress has not be screaming from the rooftops that this is going on. Unfortunately the Chamber of Commerce Republicans and the Democrats both want an open border–cheap labor and future voters. We need to primary every Congressmen who is not visiting the border and speaking out about the conditions there.

Some Good News

On Tuesday, The Conservative Review reported:

On Monday, the FBI announced that it had located 84 underage victims of child sex trafficking and 37 missing children during a nationwide sex trafficking operation conducted this month. Of the minor victims rescued, the average age was 15.5, and the youngest victim was 11 years old. The FBI also located 141 adult victims of human trafficking.

Operation Cross Country,” the nationwide enforcement campaign, was an FBI-led operation that partnered with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children and state, local, and federal agencies to initiate 391 operations across the nation during the first two weeks of August.

“The initiative really just takes a concentrated period of time where we’re just focused on the problem of child sex trafficking,” said FBI Section Chief Jose Perez. “What we do is we sit down with our local partners and our task forces and identify certain areas where we know sex trafficking is prevalent, and we’ll dedicate resources and efforts to identify and remove victims from those areas.”

The article concludes:

According to the NCMEC, runaway children make up the majority of missing minor cases reported to the non-profit. In 2021, the organization worked with authorities, families, and child welfare on 27,733 missing children cases. It reported that 19% of children who ran away from social services were likely victims of sex trafficking.

Cases of missing children are not required to be reported to the NCMEC. However, cases of missing children from social services care must be reported to the non-profit.

President and CEO of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children Michelle DeLaune said, “The success of Operation Cross County reinforces what NCMEC sees every day. Children are being bought and sold for sex in communities across the country by traffickers, gangs, and even family members.”

Our open southern border is an invitation for the cartels to engage in trafficking the minors they are illegally bringing into the country. Enforcing that border would help in the war against human trafficking.

Making a Difference–One Life At A Time

This is the story of a woman who is making a difference:

A Women’s Touch, Ending Slavery

Slavery? Does it still exist? Are you asking yourself that question? My personal experience will answer with a resounding, YES! Human trafficking, modern day slavery, is a great evil that is alive with an estimated 32 million people being enslaved around the world. It has been called the crisis of our time, as the vulnerabilities of innocent women and children are being exploited. What can a woman do to combat such vile atrocities against our own?

Open Our Eyes

In the winter of 2011 my dear friend, Jen, had just returned from a Joyce Meyer conference. She just could not get over what she heard and so she shared with me her heart concerns. Over 800,000 people are transported through Greece every year to be sold as slaves. Greece truly tugged at my heart, I had traveled there many times to see family (my husband’s family is still on the island of Chios) and partner in missions to refugees. My quick response to Jen’s concern was for us to GO do something about it! This minivan driving mom with three kids and an adored husband, was on a mission! My eyes were being opened and little did I know there was no turning around……


The adventure began immediately, as a dynamic team of 8 women came together from North and South Carolina to began a journey of a lifetime. We started with a strategy, PRAYER! We mapped out streets and began a commitment to prayer walk with focused intention, to transform our hearts and minds into a deeper love for all those we will meet, to set captives free and let’s be honest, to be PROTECTED! Our passionate and fearless perspective was rooted in our calling and in the mighty God we serve. We were ready to encounter the evil and to bring light and hope for the trafficked women in the brothels of Athens.

The streets were dark, drug infested and it was in one of those dingy, crowded brothels that I met face to face barely clothed women, some even mothers, dazed, distraught, and feeling helpless. I gave out hot coffee, prayed with them and offered them a chance for freedom. It was also in those same brothels that I encountered the power of answered prayer as miracles unfolded before my eyes; culminating with the ultimate freedom of one of one beautiful 16-year-old girl we ministered too, Maria.


Freedom began running through my veins and the power of Christ’s loving guidance was setting captives free!

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” — Harriet Tubman

I dreamed and founded True Justice International (TJI) which became a 501(c)(3) in 2012. Our mission is to execute True Justice on a local, state, national and global scale. We work diligently raising awareness in communities and churches, promoting prevention programs in schools, along with offering free counseling and mentoring services to those who have been exploited. From our work this past over 20 people were placed in safety from trafficking situations, 300 people removed from situations of exploitation and five thousand youth and young adults were educated. TJI also has a safe house in Honduras where we care for 11 little girls, all recovering from sex trafficking. These girls now have hope and a new life.

Our goal over the next several months is to open a safe house in the eastern part of the United States to serve US citizens and internationals trafficked into the US. There is an urgent need!

William Willberforce, a great English abolitionist and statesman who carried the mantel to eradicate the African slave trade, outlined three things that people can do to end slavery.

1. Prayer

2. Awareness
