    MARION, Ohio (AP) — The thousand-mile journey to the Texas border was supposed to bring the Guatemalan teenagers to a better life. Instead, it was the beginning of a terrible ordeal: prosecutors say they were fraudulently plucked from U.S. custody by conspirators posing as friends or family who forced them to work as virtual slaves. As the country's immigration system was being overwhelmed by an unprecedented flow of unaccompanied children fleeing unrest in Central America, prosecutors said one of their countrymen orchestrated the scheme to force them to work on egg farms in Ohio. U.S. immigration policy dictates that unaccompanied...

    The Muslim jihadists running ISIS already have been documented shooting, drowning, burning, crucifying, beheading, raping and blowing up victims. And they’ve been suspected of trafficking in human organs in the past. Now, a new report cites social media conversations that appear to tie sex slavery to organ trafficking. The Middle East Media Research Institute cited social media reports in which “ISIS fighters and supporters openly discuss” not only sex slaves and “the going prices for them” but also “other issues relating to them – such as possible trafficking in human organs.’ The report explains: “On Sept. 3, 2014, prior...

    In 2015, slavery is no longer freedom, but it certainly is tolerance. Congressman Louie Gohmert read a portion of my article "Pull Down the Slaver Flags of Islam" on the floor of Congress which addresses the hypocrisy of censoring the Dukes of Hazzard while opening the doors to Islamic racism and other forms of supremacist bigotry and nostalgia for slave-owning cultures. When Obama condemned Christianity for the Crusades, only a thousand years too late, in attendance was the Foreign Minister of Sudan; a country that practices slavery and genocide. Obama could have taken time out from his rigorous denunciation of...

    BOGOTA (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Rampant gang violence and drug turf wars in parts of Central America are fuelling child marriage as girls seek to marry or couple with gang members and older men as a form of protection, researchers say. Traditionally child marriage has been most prevalent among indigenous communities in rural areas across Central America. But humanitarian groups working in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, say anecdotal evidence gathered in the past five years shows drug-fueled gang violence and organized crime is driving more girls to get married in cities.

The supposedly ultra-conservative Muslim fundamentalists have been forcing women in the city of Raqqa to marry them and engage in savage sex acts that result in hospital treatment, the report says. The jihadists also buy kinky lingerie — described in the report as “strange underwear” — for their reluctant brides, according to the “Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently” activist group. “A large section of ISIS members suffer from sexual...

    President Barack Obama has conned GOP legislators and the media into blaming a 2008 anti-trafficking law for his failure to block the growing wave of migrants now crossing the Texas border, according to a new legal analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies. The 2008 law does’t limit Obama’s ability to block the wave of families, working-age youths and children, says the new report. The juvenile illegal immigrants are voluntarily crossing the border to find jobs and live with parents already in the United States, and so they aren’t covered by the 2008 anti-trafficking law, said Jon Feere, a legal...

    by John HillStand With arizonaMaricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his deputies have smashed a human smuggling ring that has brought hundreds and perhaps thousands of illegal aliens in and through Arizona over the past 4 years. The daring raid comes amid concerns that a judge's ruling could curtail such enforcement actions in the future. The suspects are part of a multi-million dollar illegal alien smuggling ring. After a five month investigation, Maricopa detectives tracked the operation to a home outside Phoenix. That's where they found the ringleader, a man who'd already been deported eight times - That man...

    By Chris Mitchell, Middle Eastern Bureau Chief JERUSALEM, Israel -- From the West Coast of Africa to the deserts of Sinai, Bedouin tribes are conducting a human trafficking trade on a massive scale. It's no secret. The trade reaps millions of dollars and deals with human misery. It could be stopped but so far no one has dared. "By that time I had lost sense (sensation) in both my hands," an Eritrean torture victim told CBN News. "It was a result of the accumulated torture but mainly because (both) of my wrists were tied up so tightly, (and I was)...

    It was another devastating blow for black Africa’s most powerless from the world’s most powerful black American. Like in his 2009 African visit when he visited a former European slave depot in Ghana, during his recently concluded 2013 African tour U.S. President Barack Obama again deemed that the defunct trans-Atlantic slave trade was the only past black African slavery worthy of his attention. While paying homage to the victims of the trans-Atlantic trade is obviously necessary for myriad reasons, the U.S. president failed once more not only to mention Africa’s other historical slave trade, Arab slavery, that also involved millions...

    Central American migrants who are lured by the U.S. open border policy are getting exploited by Mexican cartels which are expanding their rackets from the drug trade to human trafficking as reported by Isabella Cota for The Guardian: "'Why? Because a dose of drugs can be bought and consumed only once, but the same human being can be exploited in many forms over and over again throughout a lifetime,' says Marcela Chacón, Costa Rica's deputy minister of interior and police." Inexplicably, the so-called immigration reform bill proposed by U.S. lawmakers contains no provisions by which intelligence data could be obtained...
