Feds Make Record Gains On Human Trafficking As Global Networks Broken Up

While the mainstream media’s attention has been fixed on political drama in Washington D.C., federal and state law enforcement have been quietly working to dismantle a shockingly large number of human trafficking and child abuse networks across the United States. The busts in America come at the same time as a number of other successful international law enforcement operations against networks engaging in human trafficking of women and children.

Since the inauguration of Donald Trump on January 20th, 2017, the number of trafficking arrests for human trafficking in 2017 have doubled the total numbers provided for the entire year of 2014 by the Department of Justice. Each individual law enforcement operation has been listed below for reader convenience:

Domestic Trafficking Busts

January 27th: 42 arrested in Memphis, Tennessee during a human trafficking operation led by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. Arrestees included a medical professional, engineers, a law student, a tow truck driver and construction workers.

January 29th: 474 arrested, 27 adults and 28 sexually exploited children saved in an operation spearheaded by more than 30 federal, state and local law enforcement agencies and task forces in Los Angeles, California. The bust of the sex ring was the largest human trafficking operation in United States history and was largely ignored by the media.

On the same day, five individuals were arrested in Bucks County, Pennsylvania as part of what authorities described as a fetish-themed child predator sex ring. The Pennsylvania Attorney General stated that the arrests were part of an ongoing investigation and that they believed the child abuse sex ring involved more victims and predators.

February 1st: 11 women rescued in an operation lead by the New Orleans Violent Crime against Children and Human Trafficking task force. No arrests were reported.

February 5th: 108 arrests were reported in Illinois as what was described as part of a national sex trafficking sting operation occurring in 15 different states.

178 individuals were arrested in Texas on the same day as part of the same John’s Suppression Initiative. Arrestees included the sports agent responsible for getting Roger Clemens the highest ever single-season Major League Baseball contract.

In addition to the arrests in Illinois and Texas, 464 other individuals were arrested in the same interstate operation on Super Bowl Sunday. Police stated that six minors and 86 adults were rescued during the operation.

February 10th: 160 individuals were arrested during an immigration crackdown in Los Angeles, California. 150 of the individuals arrested had criminal histories, many including child sex offenses.

February 13th: 22 arrested, 15 adults and 2 child victims saved at Detroit’s North American International Auto Show.

February 14th: The FBI raided the adoption agency European Adoption Consultants (EAC) in Strongsville, Ohio. In December the State Department debarred the agency from continued operation, citing failures “to adequately supervise…preventing the sale, abduction, exploitation, or trafficking of children.”

February 15th: 11 men were arrested during a child sex sting operation in Spotsylvania County, Virginia. One of the arrestees was working part time at a local Christian school.

42 individuals were also arrested in Polk County, Florida as part of a child pornography and sex offender investigation.

International Trafficking Busts

January 27th: 13 individuals were arrested in connection with a pedophile ring in Quebec, Canada. Several of the arrestees held positions as teachers and scout leaders.

February 5th: 9 individuals were arrested and 31 children and women rescued during a police raid at the Kaliko Beach Club resort in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Users online speculated that the arrests may have been related to an announcement two days earlier from the Clinton Foundation that they would be quitting their projects in Haiti.

February 10th: Six men aged 20 to 66 were arrested on child pornography charges involving 168 underage male victims in Japan

February 13th: 16 suspects were arrested and 24 children freed by the Ghanan Police Anti-Human Trafficking Unit (ATHU) from the the Volta Lake in the process of being transported to other parts of the country to be sold into forced labour. Online users have pointed out the the now closed Clinton Global Initiative partnered with a program known as The Post Harvest Project (TPHP) in the Volta Lake area of Ghana, though at this time there is no definitive indication as to whether the arrests were related the project or not.

Notable Individual Arrests

February 13th: Jeffery Sandusky, the adopted son of disgraced child abuser Jerry Sandusky, was arrested on child molestation charges. He is accused of solicitation of statutory sexual assault, solicitation of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, six counts of unlawful contact with a minor and two counts each of solicitation to photograph or depict sexual acts, sexual abuse of children and corruption of minors.

February 15th: A man was arrested in Wayland, New York on charges of Possessing a Sexual Performance of a Child and Promoting Sexual Performance of a Child. Users online speculated that the individual was the Chief Analyst for the New York National Guard after a Linkedin profile was discovered under the same name as the arrestee.

Additionally, a newly appointed special prosecutor in Cleveland, Ohio reopened over 70 child sex cases according to reports on February 14th. A Jane Doe Plaintiff has also filed a new civil case on January 26th against notorious billionaire pedophile Jeffery Epstein and his associates Ghislaine Maxwell, Lesley Groff, Sarah Kellen, and Natalya Malyshev. The charges relate to the underage sex ring being run by Epstein that was uncovered in 2005. A pretrial conference will occur on March 9, 2017, in New York City.

  1. I’ll weigh in to say … I’m doubtful. I’m pretty sure that if you looked in detail on what actually happened in those cases you’d find this. 90% of those arrested are older gents whose fat wives have decided they don’t have to have sex anymore. After years of suffering and facing prostate cancer for not having sex for years they decided to try an Escort. Who are usually 20s-30s broke, single mom’s with kids. And the Dad is usually in jail (drugs) and to make ends meet they meet these older gents for a BJ for a couple of hundred bucks. Quick Ad on CL or Backpage. No pimps. No pro’s. Nobody forcing anyone to do anything. Just girls who need to feed their kids and older married guys who need to get off. In other words 2 consenting adults just trying to get by … only to have their lives destroyed by the Feds in their witch hunt for pedos.

    Of the 10% remaining … 9% probably did involved pimps or drug addicts. But usually < 1% of these involve "human trafficking" or pedos. Both of which I think everyone can agree … need to be behind bars. As well as the pimps. As for the girls doing it because of a drug habit … How about treatment program ???

    But like the war on drugs … arresting a very few while destroying the lives of many … IS IT WORTH IT ??? Tell that to the single mom with 3 kids who just had her photo with the word WHORE splashed across the local news. Good luck getting a job now to support your kids. Or tell that to the 50 something woman who ends up old and alone after she ditches her hubby of 40 years because HIS photo ended up on the local news.

  2. Those officers men and women who wear that badge bring tears of both sadness and joy to my eyes. I can barely see the screen for tears reading this post. Fantastic busts concerning this filth. No wonder The 7th Floor Group wanted rid of Flynn as he also knows it goes way, way beyond child molesters. For all readers of this comment GET TO GEORGE WEBB ON YOUTUBE…AND DO IT NOW… Total and utter respect goes to this website and Billy Craddick and the team…G…

  3. I’m just wondering why Donald Trump was credited with this. Did he have something to do with it? I’m imagining that all the work of investigating and gathering evidence for these arrests must have taken much longer than the few weeks he was in office. Apart from that, I am heartened and elated by the good works happening in the US. We need to do some catching up here in Canada with regards to sexual slavery in all its forms.

    1. Trump signed an executive order to actually go ahead and enforce the laws regarding trafficking. He took the gloves off basically and let law enforcement do their job.

    2. one could speculate that since Trump has been marketed as an outsider that the insiders were preventing the arrests… although if you think about the logistics that were needed to orchestrate almost 500 arrests across the country it is likely that this has been in works for months probably and weeks most definitely… thus very unlikely that it started after Jan 20th
