Human Traffickers Made Up To $14 Million Per Day In February Border Rush: Report

Human trafficking organizations sending men, women and children over the US-Mexico border to take advantage of President Biden's backfiring immigration policies earned as much as $14 million per day in February, according to Fox News, citing sources within the US Border Patrol.

"Trafficking is a multibillion-dollar industrym," according to just-retired Tucson Border Patrol Chief Roy Villareal, who had been with the agency for 30 years. "A lot of these vulnerable populations use their life savings. Some are essentially indentured servants and they're working off this debt for a long period of time. In other cases, some of these migrants are asked to transport narcotics or some form of crime to work off a different part of their debt."

The human smuggling windfall comes as U.S. taxpayer costs for the border crisis continue to spike, topping $5 million a day, based on 2019 figures provided by Health and Human Services that put daily "influx" shelter costs at $800 per migrant. Additionally, last week the Biden administration awarded a $86 million contract for hotel rooms to hold 1,200 migrant families as the crisis exceeds ICE holding capacity.

Additional costs will include overtime and hotel costs for the hundreds of agents reassigned to Texas from other areas. For context, in 2019 Congress appropriated an extra $4.6 billion to handle a similar migrant surge. In 2014, Congress gave President Obama an extra $2.7 billion to deal with his border crisis. -Fox News
