Florida Grand Jury Slams Joe Biden’s Child-Trafficking Program

 April 2, 2023

A Florida grand jury declared, on March 30, that President Joe Biden’s progressive deputies are smuggling children and teenage migrants to U.S.- based labor traffickers and employers. In the 46-page report, published by Florida’s Statewide Prosecutor’s Office said that essentially, the federal government-

 “is facilitating the forced migration, sale, and abuse of foreign children, and some of our fellow Florida residents are (in some cases unwittingly) funding and incentivizing it for primarily economic reasons.”

Described as “stunning”, by the Miami Herald, the jury’s report, describes how foreign children and teens are delivered to employers via a relay-chain network of coyotes, cartels, federal agencies, government-funded nonprofits, and U.S.-based labor traffickers. sketching the resulting child workforce in a dramatic article on February 25, the New York Times reported that

“Cristian works a construction job instead of going to school. He is 14. … Carolina packages Cheerios at night in a factory. She is 15. … Wander starts looking for day-labor jobs before sunrise. He is 13.”

In response, Jessica Vaughan, the policy director at the Center for Immigration Studies, said –

 “It’s outrageous that we are still talking about ending child labor in the United States,”

Aided by many of the progressive groups who loudly denounce Americans’ concerns about illegal migration, this labor trafficking Vaughan said in an interview with Breitbart-

“What’s shameful is that the [groups] attempt to take this moral high ground as if they’re actually helping [migrant] people, when in fact they’re drawing them into forced labor and other abusive situation. … The [groups] are openly in partnership with the government … [and] with the cartels, and they’re participating in the supply of cheap labor to the employers who benefit the most financially from this arrangement of replacing Americans with exploited migrants.” adding “Every American should be proud to take up this cause of ending child-labor trafficking,”

-Jessica Vaughan, Policy Director, Center for Immigration Studies

Then to the outlet reportedly Vaughan added-

 “we have to remember that there are some Republicans who … are also willing to [excuse this labor trafficking] under the myth that we need these workers.” [clarifying some GOP legislators who are] “offended by this … they’re the ones that really have to take up this cause,”

After Biden took over from President Donald Trump, The Florida grand jury investigated the “Unaccompanied Alien Children” (UAC) program that Biden revived. Backed by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, the investigations are trying to show DeSantis sincere intention regarding the high-profile migration debate.

A political ally of DeSantis, Attorney General Ashley Moody over saw the grand jury investigation. Reportedly AG Moody was also able to persuade a judge to block Biden’s massive “parole pathway.” This stream of illegal migrants, is intended to import at least 600,000 workers, each year, for the jobs and homes needed by Americans nationwide.

The Florida State Grand Jury Report revealed that Biden’s pro-migration deputies, nonprofits, and federal contractors hid much evidence from the jury about the child trafficking, as it described the scale of the problem, report excerpts declared-

“Since January 2021, approximately 165,000 UAC nationwide have been given to someone who is not their parent or legal guardian, approximately 90,000 have been turned over to someone claimed to be a family member without DNA testing and without adequate document verification, and about 30,000 have been surrendered to someone to whom they have no known relation.”


ORR [the federal office of Refugee Resettlement] placed eight children with members of a human trafficking ring. The traffickers enticed the children to come into the United States, promising they could attend school. When CBP apprehended the children at the border and placed them in custody, the traffickers applied as sponsors, pretending to be family friends. Once HHS [the department of Health and Human Services] released the children to the traffickers, the traffickers forced them to work on an egg farm in Marion, Ohio for 12 hours a day, six or seven days a week. The children lived in poor conditions, and the traffickers threatened them and their families with physical harm and even death if they did not work and surrender their paychecks.”


One [delivery] address in Texas had 44 children sent to it; another had 25. One sponsor in Bonita Springs, Florida, had multiple children sent to multiple addresses, and he applied using different versions of his hyphenated surname. One address in Austin, Texas, had more than one hundred UAC released to a single-family dwelling”

Quoted in the report, a contractor’s employee, who escorted teens and children from government shelters to the labor traffickers reportedly said - “As one witness put it, ‘I was there. I saw what was going on. These people [ORR and its contractors] are aware of what’s happening. They aren’t naive—they’re complicit.’

Concluding that Biden’s reckless participation in the labor trafficking system, may violate state law, the Florida State Grand Jury wrote-

“This could be construed as facilitating the trafficking of those children, or at a minimum, abandoning them to neglect. To quote §787.06, Florida Statutes (4)(a) Any person having custody or control of a minor who transfers custody or control of such minor, or offers to transfer custody of such minor, with knowledge or in reckless disregard of the fact that, as a consequence of the sale or transfer, the minor will be subject to human trafficking commits a life felony[.]”

As top Democrats, government-funded migration groups, and their media allies try to hide the problem and dodge the blame for the industrial-age workplace abuse created by their delivery of the coyotes’ child clients to U.S. employers, this report, as released, comes at an inconvenient time.

In an effort to evade the problem and shift the focus on this rampant child trafficking issue, Democrats such as the nation’s border chief, Alejandro Mayorkas, at a March 28th hearing on the matter conveniently said-

 “We are focused on addressing the employers who abuse these children and other vulnerable individuals.”

-Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of Homeland Security

And according to the Boston Globe who reportedly published some of the excuse-making, Danielle Pocock, a human trafficking attorney, at Ascentria Care Alliance in Worcester said-

“For some children, earning money is a matter of life or death. Smugglers are often involved with international cartels, said If migrant youths don’t pay what they owe, the cartel may threaten to kill family members or kidnap the child”

-Danielle Pocock, Attorney, Ascentria Care Alliance in Worcester

Back in November of 2020, Maria Woltjen, Executive Director and founder of the Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights, reportedly told a ProPublica reporter-

 “Honestly, I think almost everyone in the system knows that most of the [migrant] teens are coming to work and send money back home,”. “They want to help their parents,”

Maria Woltjen, Executive Director/Founder, Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights

In another comment, Vaughan, added-

“Many social justice organizations are falling all over themselves to expose child labor in other countries and demanding that American corporations stop using products made abroad with child labor,” …”I don’t see anybody out there talking about boycotting Ben & Jerry’s, or divesting themselves of stock in [cereal] factories that children were working in, or calling for a boycott of Hyundai automobiles because of the child labor in their manufacturing plants. They will look the other way if it’s an [politically] inconvenient type of child labor.”

Sadly, the federal government has long operated an unpopular economic policy of ‘Extraction Migration’. This policy uses the - America is a  “Nation of Immigrants” excuse - to hide the extraction of human resources from poor countries, reducing beneficial trade but using the imported workers, renters, and consumers to boost Wall Street, federal tax revenues, and the economy. It’s a financial boost for employers, landlords and some parts of the economy at a terrible price to America’s working poor.

Essentially, increased migrant inflow, forces down American wages, boosts housing process and rents, pushing many Americans out of careers in a wide variety of business sectors and contributes to the rising death rate of poor Americans. Effectively, the policy robs jobs and wealth from Heartland states, as it subsidizing coastal investors, with a flood of high-occupancy renters, low-wage workers, and government-aided consumers. It literally robs those American’s who are naturally born citizens, those who need help the most, from gaining economic ground, pushing them backwards as they compete for the jobs these illegal migrant workers take for less money.

“Workers at the edge of poverty are essential to America’s prosperity, but their well-being is not treated as an integral part of the whole. Instead, the forgotten wage a daily struggle to keep themselves from falling over the cliff. It is time to be ashamed.”
