This week, Senate Republicans charged President Biden with setting up “the biggest child trafficking ring in American history.”
The statement’s accompanying video, which features comments from several senators, including Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley, echoes the statements made by Tim Ballard, a former DHS agent whose constant pursuit of child traffickers around the world is the subject of the hugely popular new movie “Sound of Freedom.”
In the video, Cruz is heard saying, “The Biden White House has completely failed to protect the border and has urged parents to bring their minor immigrant children on risky journeys into the United States alone. After being admitted to the country, it failed to secure the safety of these kids.”
Senator Hawley is heard stating in the video, “It is a conveyor belt full of kids being shoved through the system, and what is the focus of HHS? Simply remove them as quickly as possible.”
Hawley stated at the same hearing that “this White House has permitted many thousands of kids to be sold into slavery. They aren’t doing anything about it.”
In the video provided to the Senate GOP Twitter page, Senator John Cornyn of Texas states: “Biden doesn’t care what happens to the 300,000 plus children who are unaccompanied who are being put with sponsors since he took office as president.”
That’s how many children are missing under Joe Biden.
