(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) Several U.S. senators sent a letter to Sen. Gary Peters, D-Mich., chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, demanding that the committee investigate numerous claims of child trafficking happening right under the Biden administration’s nose.
“We write in response to recently reported claims by federal employee whistleblower that the Department of Health and Human Services is knowingly transferring unaccompanied migrant children in the custody of criminals, including sex traffickers,” began the letter from Republican Sens. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Rick Scott of Florida and Josh Hawley of Missouri.

According to the Post Millennial, the letter was written largely in response to a video released by Project Veritas featuring a woman named Tara Lee Rodas, a former HHS employee at an emergency intake site in California, making claims about her work.
“We are paying to put children in the hands of criminals,” the senators wrote in response. “We know that children have been trafficked through the [Unaccompanied Children] program,” to which Rodas referred in the video.
Rodas makes several claims in the video, including that the site where she works encouraged staff to push kids out as quickly as possible to avoid lawsuits.
“It angers us that this Administration is more concerned about lawsuits than about protecting a child from sex slavery,” the senators wrote.
“We have long known that the Biden Administration’s open border policies are fueling human trafficking and child sex trafficking, as migrants repay debts to the cartels who transport them to illegally cross the border.”
The senators mentioned that they have brought up concerns about the burgeoning human trafficking problem brought in by the nigh-open southern border in committee hearings or briefings with HHS and the Department of Homeland Security, “however, this Administration is either unable or unwilling to answer our question.”
Several whistleblowers on child trafficking rings have come out of the woodwork in recent days, concerning mainly America’s corrupt administrative organizations and the porous southern border.
Child Protective Services is also suspected to be involved in child trafficking after videos of CPS agents trying to push children in to prostitution went viral.
