Human Trafficking

I was pleased to see Trump including human trafficking in the list of reasons for having a border. 1/25/17 Chicago Sun-Times:
HOUSTON — President Donald Trump announced his long-awaited plan Wednesday to build a wall on the 1,954-mile U.S. border with Mexico, calling for its “immediate construction” to stop illegal immigration, drug and human trafficking and acts of terrorism.
I have libertarian friends who find it hard to believe there is much demand for underage prostitutes.  1/26/17 Idaho Statesman:
In November 2013, a month after being released from prison, Michael Wayne Wade met a girl.
Wade, 31, had served a five-year sentence in state prison for failing to register as a sex offender. In a phone call recorded by the 15-year-old girl — identified in court documents as “MV” — Wade told her he wanted her to “hustle” — to work as a prostitute with him acting as her “daddy,” or pimp.
Even Obama's DOJ acknowledged the problem of cross border child sex trafficking.

  1. On immigration I'm at odds with almost everybody it seems. Unlike the Democrats and most libertarians I support our immigration laws. Unlike a lot of others I oppose the wall because it is a very expensive band-aid that doesn't address the root problem: Mexico is broken. It has too much crime and too little economic freedom. We need a foreign policy aimed at encouraging reforms, and there may be some things we can do to assist in the private-sector end of its crime problem.

  2. We are a pressure relief valve for broken Mexico. Closing that valve will force reforms.

    the US can no longer afford to attempt to fix the world's problems. IT DOESN'T WORK! The people in other nations don't want to fix their own problems.
    You cannot impose our culture on others. We sure don't need them doing it to us, with these damn illegal aliens.
