For Jaco Booyens, an anti-sex trafficking leader, filmmaker and activist, there is no doubt that President Donald Trump and his administration’s fight against human trafficking is the most effective when compared to other presidents, even with what former President Barack Obama has done.
This was stated in the program “Life, Liberty, and Levin,” presented by Fox News on Aug. 11, when presenter Mark Levin asked him if President Donald Trump had done more against human trafficking than previous presidents, including former President Barack Obama.
“No question,” he replied. “Not just done more to try to address, but actionable work, where there’s rescues, where he has empowered ICE,” Booyens responded.
In the same interview, he highlighted ICE’s work in the fight against sex trafficking.
“These are incredible men and women that help us … incredible people who actually go and keep America’s children safe. This president has empowered them to do so,” Booyens said.
He also referred to the refusal of CNN and MSNBC to broadcast his story, saying, “This crime doesn’t ask ‘Are you conservative or liberal?” and noted that these media are “busy with silly stuff—accusing the president.”
Jaco Booyens, who directed the anti-trafficking film “8 Days” last year, is an advisory board member of the rescue group Traffic911, which has freed hundreds of children from the sex trade since its founding in 2009, according to Western Journal.
In his film ” 8 Days” he tells the story of a 15-year-old girl who is forced to engage in sex trafficking after attending a party with her friends.
Since taking office, the Trump administration has focused on combating human trafficking.
“My Administration continues to work to drive out the darkness human traffickers cast upon our world,” wrote President Donald Trump in a 2017 executive order declaring National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month in January 2018.
