A former White House adviser, Stephen Miller, accused the Biden administration of turning the United States into the “world’s epicenter” of child trafficking due to the administration’s border policies.
“These astronomical numbers defy any historical comparison. So overwhelmingly are the prior records exceeded that there is no reference point. Biden, with the unflinching aid of 50 Senate Democrats, is running the largest child smuggling operation our world has ever seen,” Miller wrote on Twitter over the weekend in response to a report finding that some 250,000 children crossed the border and were sent to “sponsors” since President Joe Biden entered office last year.
Miller, who was one of the Trump administration’s architects and currently heads the America First Legal group, added in a separate interview that the policy is creating “the largest child smuggling epidemic in human history.”
“It has enriched virtually every major child smuggler in the hemisphere and far beyond. It has filled the ranks of MS-13. It has created a monstrous industry of vast global reach,” he told the Washington Examiner on Monday. “And it has made America’s border into the world’s epicenter of labor trafficking, sex trafficking, and modern-day slavery.”
