Thanks To Trump’s Anti-Sex Trafficking Policies, 368 Arrested In Human Trafficking Sweep: ‘No Question About It’

Thanks to 45th President Donald Trump making history as the first president to make a White House office dedicated to fighting sex trafficking, an “incredible impact” was made and continues to be made in the fight against human traffickers. 368 people were arrested and 131 victims were saved on February 1 through “Operation Reclaim and Rebuild” in California.

116 of the arrests were made by Los Angeles Police Department investigators. According to Chief Michel Moore of the LAPD, the operation was conducted over seven days in nine California counties, including Los Angeles, Orange, and San Bernardino counties.

“The average age of most victims was in their mid-20s, and our investigators worked diligently alongside our victim advocacy groups in providing these victims with services and resources to help them escape from this life-threatening environment,” Moore revealed.

“We’ve never had an office in the White House designated and dedicated to fighting sex trafficking,” the founder of SHAREtogether, Jaco Booyens, said of Trump’s help in an interview with NTD in 2021. 

“No former president in the history of this country has used his or her platform to denounce the exploitation of children and then appropriate funding. So we’ve seen an incredible impact over the years, over the last four years, particularly towards the support for law enforcement,” Booyens said. “We’ve seen a tremendous rise in apprehension, the arrest of perpetrators and rescue of victims under the Trump administration, no question about it.”

“In these cases that you’re seeing now such as California, and you’ll see some others coming out now, they’ve been 9, 10 months in the making under the Trump administration—in that mechanism of funding law enforcement appropriately, having special task forces,” Booyens continued.

This comes after Trump said, while speaking in Columbia, South Carolina alongside his leadership team in the state, when he returns to the White House in 2025, he will bring an end to “radical racists and perverts” indoctrinating our children in schools.

“We’re going to stop the left-wing radical racists and perverts who are trying to indoctrinate our youth,” Trump said. “And we’re going to get their Marxist hands off of our children.”

As President, Trump made it a priority to target child and human trafficking and the mainstream media still refuses to cover this.

Human trafficking is a huge business, receiving profits of about $150 billion a year and gaining an estimated 800,000 new victims every year including men, women, and children.

Here is a complete list of actions Trump and his administration took to help end child and human trafficking:

In one of his first acts in office, Trump signed the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (S. 1312), establishing a new prevention, prosecution, and collaboration initiative to bring human traffickers to justice.

On December 21, 2017, Trump signed the Abolish Human Trafficking Act which strengthened programs supporting human trafficking survivors.

On December 31, 2017, Trump designated January 2018 as a month dedicated to combating human trafficking.

On January 9, 2019, Trump signed the Human Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act which gave $430 million to fight human trafficking not only in America, but worldwide.

On October 20, 2020, Trump’s Department of Human Services (DHS) launched a brand-new center for countering human trafficking.
