FACTS

    The Department of Justice (DOJ) gave $35 million in grants to Ivanka Trump’s human trafficking campaign early last week. The money will be allocated to 73 different organizations which focus on housing for victims of trafficking, as well as for training, employment help, and counseling. Human trafficking is said to be one of the biggest and fastest-growing crimes with nearly 30 million victims worldwide.

    “In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, combating human trafficking in the U.S. and abroad is critical work. DOJ’s grant recipients are on the frontlines of this fight, ensuring that survivors across our country are afforded safe and stable housing and empowered with the support and resources they need to rebuild their lives.”

    RIGHT

    Attorney General William Barr said the administration will continue to do everything in its power to “investigate, prosecute and punish” those involved in the crime. Following the announcement, conservative political commentator Samantha Marika tweeted, “I don’t see Joe Biden saying he wants to end human trafficking, which is exactly why Hollywood is voting for him.” Genevieve Collins, a US House of Representatives candidate from Texas, applauded their efforts and noted that trafficking is “something we don’t hear nearly enough about.”

    LEFT

    The Left supports the grants, but has been critical of the Right’s trafficking-ring “conspiracy theories” involving high-profile politicians (such as the Clintons) and Hollywood elites (such as Tom Hanks and Ellen Degeneres). One writer noted, regarding the grant:

    “They’re using the story as more evidence that Trump is breaking up a child-trafficking cabal run by Democrats.”

    Others have pointed out that while elite trafficking rings may indeed be a reality, President Trump himself had many ties to pedophile and trafficker Jeffrey Esptein. Trump has also formerly been accused of making trafficking worse by repeatedly removing legal protection from the LGBTQ community, a demographic “highly vulnerable to trafficking.”
