Child Protection Services (CPS) putting children into Sex Trafficking is a Huge Problem (Part 1)

Human Trafficking is a hot subject and we need to keep it that way and keep it to the forefront until we stop this atrocity! Now, this article by Brian Shilhavy will blow your mind! Can you imagine a government agency that was created to help children and their families is a source for the human traffickers.

Think about this, a child is conceived and the choice for whether that child will live, or die is made by another. A child is taken from his/her parents into foster care, given to a relative or trafficked is again made by someone else’ choice. Whatever happens to that child from that point on is made by other people’s choice.

As I research this evil and dark issue, I’m more than ever passionate about bringing Trauma To Triumphant Family Ranches to fruition! It’s more than being a safe and supportive environment as a preventive to the trauma and loss of what is currently available, but it is a place of healing and restoration after a child or family is rescued.

Child Sex Trafficking through Child “Protection” Services Exposed – Kidnapping Children for Sex
by Brian Shilhavy Health Impact News Editor

In this Buzzsaw interview (below), filmmaker Sean Stone interviews Tammi Stefano, the Executive Director of The National Safe Child Coalition (NSCC) and exposes much of the corruption happening within Child Protection Services and Family Courts. This might be one of the few interviews currently available on the Internet that gives this much information on the child sex trafficking business that exists in LA County, and across the nation. Tammi Stefano reveals some very shocking information about the child and human trafficking business currently operating in the United States, which is a huge illegal business that brings in more money than the illegal drug trade and illegal arms trade combined.

Tammi Stefano has spent over two decades on front lines fighting for child safety. She understands the emotions of being victimized, having survived a kidnapping in her younger years. Determination was the driving force that prompted her to go undercover to catch a pedophile schoolteacher.

Child Protection Services Do Not Protect Children – Hundreds of Children Murdered in CPS Care

Picking up the interview at about the 9-minute mark, Stefano begins to explain that when there is an allegation of child abuse, law enforcement and child protection services (CPS) are the two entities that get involved. According to Stefano, the social workers working in child protection services across the country do not have the training to truly investigate child abuse, because child abuse is a crime. Stefano encourages the listeners of the program to call law enforcement, not CPS, if they encounter sexual or physical abuse of a child, because this is a crime, and CPS is not trained to handle crimes. Stefano says:

The minute you call child protection services, you can rest assured that the investigation will not be done properly. Chances are the child will not be protected.

She then gives the example of Los Angeles County, where in 2013 CPS took “thousands of children away from parents,” and that 570 children were murdered while in the care of CPS and away from their families.

Foster Children Bring in Great Profits to the State

At another point in the interview, Stefano relates how California benefits financially from having children in foster care. She states that adults who are incarcerated in the penal system on average cost the state about $48,000.00 per prisoner. Stefano gives one example she encountered where a Los Angeles judge sent one mom’s son to a “behavioral modification camp” because he was allegedly labeled “defiant.” He was given electro-shock treatments, and these treatments were billed to the mother at a cost of $7000.00 per week. Stefano stated that the mother is still making payments on these “treatments,” while her son is now 23, and she still has 10 years left on her payment plan. To this day she does not know where her child was sent for these “medical services.”

Los Angeles (LA) CPS Turning Foster Children Over to Known Sex Abuse Offenders

When Stone asked her who CPS was turning these children over to with such “gruesome” statistics, Stefano replied that what she discovered, and what the Los Angeles Times was kind enough to publish, was that 1000 “convicted sex offenders” had been given a “green light” by CPS to become “approved foster parents” just in Los Angeles County.

Child Protection Services (CPS) Putting Children into Sex Trafficking is a Huge Problem

At around the 25:15 point in the interview, Stone and Stefano begin to discuss the child sex trafficking problem. When Stone asks Stefano if she has encountered sex trafficking among children, she replies: “We need to cover it a lot more.”

As an example, she mentioned a sex trafficking case with CPS in Orange County California last year. Stefano says that of 105 sexually abused victims that were found in this case, 65% of those victims were in the foster care system under CPS control, and they were allegedly never reported missing. Stefano says:

What we are finding now is this trafficking is a lot bigger, and a lot more involved politically than we care to look at, or the media won’t cover. Everybody is afraid because there are some really big heavy hitters that are very influential that are involved.

Children have been sold, and there have been cases, where children have been sold up to 75 times in one day. 75 times in one day…. someone has abused this child.

Stefano then relates the following story:

Last year I had a case where a lovely young girl, a single mom – her mom was a great Italian woman who lives in Burbank. She was having some problems with her daughter. Her daughter started hanging out with the wrong crowd – good girl though – she just needed to be pulled back in.

So her mom calls a friend at the police department, and she says, “You know, let’s put a little scare – I want to do something. I want to make sure she is OK.”

He says, “You know, call Child Protective Services.”

“Ok, I’ll try it.”

She called Child Protective Services. They said, “We need to take her, and help out here.”

They put this child – gorgeous – I mean she looks like a model – 16 years old – (actually) 15 at the time – (and they put her) in this group home.

The mom goes to visit her. It was near the holidays. She feels like “Alright, she is going to learn her lesson. She’ll never mess up again. This is a hard-core lesson.”

Her daughter’s gone. Her daughter and three other beautiful young girls.

Now you have to be reminded that the gates around this group home, locally, are high. They are too high for anyone to escape, and they are locked electronically. You are not getting out. And there is a full staff.
While this staff says, “Gee, we were short staffed, and we just don’t know how this gate got open.”

This mother daily for over one year posted – I mean she came on my show. She did not stop looking for her daughter. Her daughter is home (now.) She found her through the efforts of a combined community effort. And she is still healing. She was passed on to more people – she was so abused. She was locked up. She was a prisoner.

Her and three others from a State-run (foster) group home. And how did the gates get open? It was near the holidays and they just don’t have an answer.

Stefano then talks about an organization called “The Humanitarian Alliance” and a report they have that found within 48 hours after a child has aged out of the foster care system, because they have become 18 and have left their foster homes, 65 to 70% of them are captured into human trafficking syndicates. Stefano believes the only way this can happen is because those inside the foster care system are helping to arrange it to happen, for a fee.

Human Trafficking

Speak Up with Monica

This is what Wikipedia says about Human Trafficking:
Human Trafficking is the trade of humans for the purpose of forced labor, sexual slavery, or commercial sexual exploitation for the trafficking or others. This may encompass a spouse in the context of forced marriage, or the extraction of organs or tissues, including for surrogacy and oval removal. Human trafficking can occur within a country or trans-nationally. Human trafficking is a crime against the person because of the violation of the victim’s rights of movement through coercion and because of their commercial exploitation. Human trafficking is the trade in people, especially women and children, and does not necessarily involve the movement of the person from place to place.
According to the International Labor Organization (ILO), forced labor alone (one component of human trafficking) generates an estimated $150 billion in profits per annum as of 2014. In 2012, the ILO estimated that 21 million victims are trapped in modern day slavery. Of these, 14.2 million (68%) were exploited for labor, 4.5 million (22%) were sexually exploited, and 2.2 million (10%) in state-imposed forced labor. The International Labor Organization has reported that child workers, minorities, and irregular migrants are at considerable risk of more extreme forms of exploitation. Statistics shows that over half the world’s 215 million young workers are observed to be in hazardous sectors, including forced sex work and forced street begging. Ethnic minorities and highly marginalized groups of people are highly estimated to work in some of the most exploitative and damaging sectors, such as leather tanning, mining, and stone quarry work.
Human trafficking is thought to be one of the fastest growing activities of trans -national criminal organization.
Human trafficking is modern day slavery. It is the exploitation of men, women and children for forced labor or sex by a third party to profit or gain.

Ken Paxton, Attorney General of Texas – texasattorneygeneral.gov
Texas, my home state is in the forefront of combatting this hideous crime. In 2016 – in one of his first major initiatives – Attorney General Paxton formed the Human Trafficking and Transnational/Organizational Crime Section (HTTOC), tasked with combatting human trafficking across our state. There are 234,000 Victims of labor trafficking in Texas any given time. This section has already won significant battles against human traffickers, including developed and produced a powerful training video – designed to mobilize all Texans to “Be the One” in the fight against human trafficking.

Texas ranks first in the nation By Drew Knight – kvue.com
According to a report from The Human Trafficking Institute, 74 criminal human trafficking cases made their way through federal courts in Texas last year.
Austin, Texas – The state of Texas has some work to do when it comes to human trafficking, according to a report from The Human Trafficking Institute.
The report, released Tuesday, shows Texas ranked first in the nation for the number of criminal cases that wound their way through the federal courts last year. Of those 74 cases, 68 involved sex trafficking and six involved labor trafficking.
Texas also ranked first for the number of new criminal human trafficking cases in 2018 with 19 initiated cases. That’s well above the national average of five new cases per state or territory.
Of the new criminal cases, the report shows Texas initiated two criminal labor trafficking cases last year, making Texas one of seven states or territories to initiate a new labor trafficking prosecution.

My thoughts
The trafficking industry is a $32 billion industry, that is the third largest criminal industry in the world, only lagging behind drugs and guns. Most being sex slavery and a high percentage being female. Almost impossible to catch and bring to justice. With people becoming more aware and pay attention to their surroundings some victims of trafficking are being noticed but this is very rare.
What is it like to be a slave, well your freedom is taken from you. From the moment you were trafficked you have no more free choice; you do someone else’s bidding. If you become a labor slave, you work long hours with not much to eat and no free time, beatings and endless work, often hidden away not to be noticed by others. If you become a sex slave, your used and abused so many times a day and night that you lose all track of time and your emotions become frozen. I can’t think of anything worse than to have no free choice. Bad treatment and abuse become the norm even though you never become used to it.
A passion burns inside of me of various emotions, anger, sadness, horror of what is happening to people who have been stolen who have been trafficked and why, because of evil, greed, lusts, selfishness…. No one is safe from sexual slavery; a baby, toddler, young child is desired by some evil person because he wants a young tight helpless child to get his gratification from…. that’s the harsh reality, no sugar coating here. Childhoods are stolen, lives are taken as you enter a nightmare underground world.
Atrocities are going on, people dressing up as the opposite sex and reading to kids in the libraries – I saw one video where one of these people was actually on the floor imitating a sexual act…. To young children no less!!!! It’s beyond my understanding why parents would allow a child to participate in such activities. Parents need to be diligent, keep their kids close and yes, we need to get back to a traditional and moral way of life.
I will continue on this topic.
