Surprise! I think there are higher ups in government making money off this illegal activity.
Just like somebody is tipping off criminals running drugs and guns for kickbacks, getting big payoffs to look the other way or even to help by providing cover and transportation networks of a legitimate American business. The same with human trafficking.
Its big business.
Impossible? We were so surprised to hear the Catholic Church has anything to do with child molestation yet went on for years under our noses. People we trusted with secret lives we knew nothing about.
Remember the Haitian children who were almost spirited away?
The black market includes slave traffickers and this is only the Mexican connection.
This is not just the Mexicans.
This is a global trade group a business, a black market corporation just like any other black market corporation like guns and the drug trade - legal and illegal. Human trafficking.
Once you know how deep ugly goes you will try to root it out at the source.
If you keep cutting off only the tip of the problem,
they only get smarter, better organized, grow bigger and worse.
I ran a thread like that some three weeks ago - Mexico immigration agency fires top officials amid reports of collusion with kidnappers www.abovetopsecret.com... It ran in Breaking Alternative News and received one flag and only my two comments. This was plainly about government collusion with kidnappers. Only one person cared enough to flag it.
