A one-day sweep in Wayne County, Michigan, identified and recovered 123 missing children, including sex trafficking victims, as President Trump’s commitment to ending “the absolutely horrific practice of human trafficking” continues to focus on the pedophilia and trafficking epidemic sweeping the nation.

Federal authorities have locked up thousands of people on child trafficking and pedophilia charges since President Trump assumed office, however the huge increase in numbers on recent years is being largely under-reported by mainstream media which is intent on smearing the president at every opportunity.

Operation MISafeKid, the latest sweep, was focused on locating child victims of sex trafficking and took place on Sept. 26.

The federal operation involved multiple agencies, including the U.S. Marshals Service, the F.B.I., Michigan State Police, the Detroit Police Department, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

CBS Denver reports: Investigators looked into missing child case files prior to the operation and began by visiting last known addresses, friend’s homes and schools in hopes of finding them in a safe place.

Out of 301 files of missing children, 123 were identified and recovered safely during the operation,” the U.S. Marshals Service said in a statement released Tuesday.

All 123 children were physically located and interviewed — standard protocol for the Michigan State Police. All of the children located were interviewed about potentially being sexually victimized or used in a sex trafficking ring during their period of time that they were deemed missing. Three cases were identified as being possible sex trafficking cases.”

Additionally, investigators uncovered information about two missing children in Texas and one in Minnesota. The U.S. Marshals Service is actively investigating and working to recover those children at this time.

The Eastern District of Michigan is fully committed to assisting state and local agencies with locating and recovering missing children and the prevention of their falling victim to sex trafficking,” officials stated.

“The message to the missing children and their families that we wish to convey is that we will never stop looking for you.”
