Washington (CNN) -- In what it called its largest crackdown to date on child prostitution, the FBI announced Monday that a nationwide operation over the weekend resulted in 150 arrests, with 105 children rescued.
Authorities said the operation, which took investigators to race tracks and truck stops, also targeted the use of social media sites for child prostitution activity.
Overall, the three-day undercover roundup Operation Cross Country took place in 76 cities and involved 230 law enforcement units, according to the FBI.
He said at a news conference that a prime environment for child prostitution is major sporting events such as the Super Bowl, where authorities had "multiple recovery of children" in the past.

Lock them all up and throw away the key.
so are these all related to each other?
Or did they wait to organize a big show?
How many poor children were forced to have sex while they waited to stage their act?
I keep reading the headline as...
Soros arrested in child prostitution crackdown.
Sen Martinez, cough cough.....
Why haven’t they arrested this ADMITTED child prostitution user...?
Answer, there are a LOT of perverts in Washington....
No mention that the pimps were Illegal Aliens
Good questions that the article doesn’t answer.
Heh, had to re-read the headline 3x. Thought is said, “Soros arrested in child prostitution crackdown (150 arrested)”... damn, wish that was true.
Not Soros? - Yeah - what a disappointment...
They dinged 59 people in four counties here. (Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Genesee)
It is a joint operation with Feds, state and locals. Not a show, an organized effort.
Somebody needs to open a millstone factory.
“..better that they be thrown into the sea with a millstone...”
Hanging with piano wire.
Its nice to know that the FBI can still do something useful under Attorney General Holder.
I think I would have used the word “despite” instead of “under”.
Still working on arresting the pres_ _ ent ??!
Really? I was under the impression that they were all born that way, and we don’t have any right to judge who they fall in love with.
It's true ... every time I see a Super Bowl kick-off ... or the flag drops on the Indy 500 .. I get this incredible urge to violate a 12 year old.
That could work too.
But you have to understand that I have not held the FBI in any great esteem for quite some time; long before Obama and Holder.
FBI not the great police organization that its reputation would suggest.
Just as an example the 302 interview process is grossly outdated and any judge that holds any information recorded on a 302 as admissible evidence should be impeached and removed from office.
First publish their names, addresses, pictures.
But are THE TARGETS all related to each other some how?
This could be the man-boy equivalent of Stonewall. After all, eliminating the age of consent IS the next "civil rights struggle" in the prog pipeline.
Boy that sure put a dent in mac daddies future administration pool.
Soon he will have to gain access to those resources in Iran.
Why havent they arrested this ADMITTED child prostitution user...?
That sure as heck disappeared off the radar real quick.
Since this sting operation has anyone seen Senator Menendez?
Most aren’t directly, but many are in communication through prostituting websites. There are now websites that are like Craig’s List for prostitutes. A concentrated operation gives you a small window to round up a fair number of people before they can burn the op by posting their arrest on those websites.
I am waiting on the names..and I bet they have a Latin ping to them....
All jokes and politics aside for this one...I applaud all of these agencies for their efforts. Bravo, well done, thank you, and I hope you catch every last scumbag involved.
It really depends on the area.
A lot of wives and girfriends are going to read that, and a lot of guys won't be attending any more big games.
Hear! Hear! Provided, however, that "them" only includes those arrested whom the government can prove guilty beyond a reasonable doubt before a jury of their peers.
I think you meant Menendez. Martinez was a disappointment but I doubt he was into something as vile as this.
Just scratching the surface, but you’re welcome. Worked a butt load of unpaid OT last week on this op.
That's called a "shit sandwich".....the good stuff is on the inside but ya got to ruin it with whatever you wish to coat it with.
I used to work for a manager like that, no matter what contribution one made, he could never bring himself to offer congratulations but rather more negative criticism.......I'm sure it sucked being him.
I'm glad they're getting attention and probably help (although it is quite likely they'll be back to the "trade" in no time), but I'm not sure I'd be bragging about the production numbers in this way, if I were the LEO in charge of the PR on this one.
The Child Prostitution Ring that Reached the Bush Whitehouse
Originally scheduled to air in May of 1994 on the Discovery Channel, " Conspiracy of Silence" was yanked at the last minute.
I don’t get it. Are there really that many men who hire prostitutes? And child prostitutes????
If so, it’s very depressing. I know there is evil in the world, but I don’t understand this at all. How could anyone get pleasure from hurting and exploiting a child?
have you ever worked for any of these agencies?
Showmanship sometimes costs people dearly
In all likelihood, so are the children. Human traffickers use promises of a better life in another country to lure people to use their services--the people think they are just getting help to cross the border. By the time they are sold into slavery and figure out what was really going on, it's too late.
Failure to enforce immigration laws is failure to stop human trafficking (aka slavery).
I wasn’t always this cynical, but I am now, and just because the media reports something that the government (or Wall st or the corporate world) says, is not something I necessarily and enthusiastically accept as the truth.
For instance a bi-partisan government that for over 35 years has not enforced existing immigration law is a big part of this problem, and they still refuse to admit it. The elites that push for immigration amnesty do not want it tainted by reality and truth. Propaganda and misinformation now runs rampant here just like in the Soviet Union.
How many are "upstanding citizen" principals, coaches, politicians, clergy, and...Boy Scout leaders??
If a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it, does it make a sound?
How many homosexuals were nabbed with underage male hustlers in runaway/drug/gay districts in Houston and San Francisco?
How many of these underage prostitutes were advertised in the corrupt Village Voice Media ads from coast to coast in “alternative newsweekly papers”?
Regardless, even one young woman returned to her family is a win. Also, at least ‘scratching the surface’ now and then may be a deterrent.
Somehow, somewhere, 0dumb0 & Holder have to be the root cause & main driving force behind this. If not, I will still blame them & hold them accountable for yet another despicable atrocity in their 5 1/2 yrs house of horrors so far.
