Why? Were any of these kids shown to be human trafficking victims? Talk about your "feelings over reality." Wait! Are you some sort of leftist? :eek:

You think this pilot program was designed to see how many families with step parents are coming into the country? Brilliant.

YOU jumped to the conclusion that the 30% were human traffickers, based on ZERO evidence. Typical leftist!


Why do you hate our country so?

Makes me think that it is likely that there are literally thousands of human trafficking victims every month at our border, and the impotent feelings-over-reality leftists don't want to do anything about it. Not good for their narrative.
So this somehow makes you believe what you already believe and what you desperately _want_ to believe? What an odd coincidence.

To clarify, you think it's more likely that those 30% of $unknown number are human traffickers, rather than non-genetic family members? How many human traffickers do you know vs non-genetic family members? What does Occam's Razor tell you?

If a human trafficker is traveling with a genetically related family, how does that get tallied? Fraudulent or real?

Of course you think this, because the only reason this garbage study exists is such that brainless quislings like yourself will naturally think this way. Reality doesn't matter. Your brain is captured, and your captors exist for the sole purpose of destroying the United States of America

So, fuck off you willing, prideful quisling.

As usual, playing a deliberate shell game with the stats to exaggerate their significance. Unless we know how many people are suspected, the data doesn't mean much... and in fact, it suggests that the pilot program is wildly inefficient, since less than a third of suspects turn out to be real problems.

I'm shocked that Spidey cares more about mythical trafficking victims than actual children stolen from their deported parents and put up for adoption.

What can the “leftists” do about it when Republicans are in charge? GOP don’t care, otherwise they would’ve started looking for a solution. All they did was drive up the prices coyotes command for border crossing, making it more lucrative for organized crime.

Also...how many leftists have you heard here complain that fast DNA testing is a “bad” thing?

Wait, you think human trafficking over our border is a myth? You think they started these DNA tests to see how many families had step parents / step children? Let's start at the base level. Why do you think this pilot program was put in place? (hint: human trafficking)

So, if less than 1% of gun owners murder people, and less than 1% of guns are ever used to harm, than you lefties are fine with that, right? I mean, 2/3 is the magic line in the sand, amirite?
Care to bring any other ridiculous comparisons like Nazis??

This thread has been shown to be another one of your failures.

Program is over, it's not "in place".

When your government steals brown children and sells them to other people, you're perfectly fine.

Jumping to conclusions is what Trumpsters have been trained to do. If the story doesn't say what you want then embellishments are obviously necessary. The original Examiner story doesn't mention human trafficking at all. The headline of the Federalist article is an outright lie. The testing didn't reveal human trafficking in any way. Not that Slow would even notice.

Why do I think the pilot program existed? To throw shade on the honesty of migrants in general. I mean, everybody already knows they're disease ridden drug smuggling rapists, murders & degenerates, right?

Yes, I'm fine not separating 100% of families of gun owners as a policy to try to combat gun violence.

From your article:

DHS officials say the pilot is just a small-scale evaluation to see if the technology can help root out cases of criminal fraud, including human trafficking and “child recycling.” Last month, former DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told a congressional committee that the agency had discovered multiple incidences of young people being passed around, or “recycled,” to help migrants gain illegal entry. In a speech last month, she claimed that “cases of fake families are popping up everywhere.” But the numbers tell a different story.

Since April 18, CBP has referred 101 families for suspected fraud to ICE special investigators, a DHS official told reporters Wednesday. Of those, 29 were determined to be fraudulent, resulting in 45 people being referred for prosecution and 33 being accepted by prosecutors. CBP doesn’t have figures yet for April, but in the month prior, 53,077 family units were apprehended at the southern border, placing best estimates for the rate of fraud somewhere below half a percent.

LOL leave it to the OP to lie blatantly.

Thread topic is wrong.

Yet another conservative reveals that if it weren't for shit he'd have no brain at all. Granted, this is like the 1000th (I honestly doubt I'm even exaggerating) thread that the OP has done this, but let it be a lesson kids, if you subsist on brain food that is just shit, your brain will follow.

Thread title is 100% accurate. 30% of those suspected are indeed found to be made up of unrelated "family" members.

So, for argument's sake, let's go with those leftist-sourced numbers. That's only several thousand human trafficking victims per year, so who cares, right? That's what you're saying?
