In a Buzzsaw interview by filmmaker Sean Stone, Tammi Stefano, the Executive Director of the National Safe Child Coalition (NSCC), exposed the internal corruption of Child Protection Services and Family Courts. Stefano stated “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.” She also stated “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.” Child Protection Services in America does not have a duty to report a child missing when the child is a ward of the State. Stefano then reveals a report from an organization call “The Humanitarian Alliance” found that within 48 hours after a child has aged out of the foster care system, 65 to 70 percent of them are captured into human trafficking rings.
On May 29, 2015, the “Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act of 2015” was signed into law after much political fighting. Will this bill actually maintain the problem and make it worse by funneling even more federal funds into social services for children and troubled youth, or will it actually help put an end to this heinous industry?
