Interesting contrast

To the editor:

January is National Human Trafficking Month in the U.S. and is defined by Wikipedia as "trade of humans most commonly for the purpose of forced labor, sexual slavery or commercial sexual exploitation for the trafficker or others." According to the same source, "Mexico is a large source, transit and destination country for victims of human trafficking." Also, according to the Global Human Trafficking website, the United States is the number one destination of trafficked people in the world.

So, in addition to drug dealers, gang members, criminals escaping justice in their own country and terrorists entering the U.S. through Mexico, we have an open border with our neighbor to the south encouraging, aiding and abetting the continual flow of slaves, adults and children, being bought and sold for the purpose of profit.

What a contrast! Our porous border and broken immigration system is promoting and enabling the very industry that we have dedicated an entire month of awareness in order to eradicate.

Democrats' ideals of open borders, abolishing ICE and creating more Sanctuary Cities in defiance of federal law is music to the ears of these modern-day slavers. If you are truly a supporter of human rights, wanting to help in the destruction of an industry that steals lives, demoralizes human beings and encourages sexual exploitation of our most innocent and defenseless humans, then you must stand for one and oppose the other.
