Hundreds of Thousands of Children in the U.S. are Being Separated from Their Parents – Many are Sexually Trafficked
The corporate sponsored "mainstream" media has been fixated in recent days with reports that children are being separated from their parents at U.S. borders. For the news sources that are critical of the current administration, one is led to believe that this is a recent problem that just started. However, this limited and biased view is not even close to the truth. Health Impact News has covered the issue of child trafficking of minor children coming across the U.S. borders since 2016, when Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) published a six-month investigation into the matter during the Obama administration. Focusing on a couple of thousand children currently in border facilities without their parents also ignores a far greater problem, one that is a national crisis, and that is the 400,000+ children who have been taken away from their parents, and the practice of child trafficking that is continuing to happen in every U.S. state every single day. The overall real problem in this tragedy is one of child trafficking, and it is time that this issue gets public attention.
