Texas Sheriff Slams Democrat’s Open Borders: Illegal Immigrants Are ‘New Slaves’ in US

Fact checked by The People's Voice Community

Democrat open border policies are creating a “new slave class” in the United States, according to Goliad County Sheriff Roy Boyd.

Illegal immigrants to the US take years to pay off their debts to cartels and people smugglers and live as “slaves” in the US, warns Sheriff Boyd, who questioned why Democrats stand by open border policies when they are responsible for the perpetuation of slavery.

Adults and children are routinely working in forced labor, warns Sheriff Boyd, who provided a glimpse of the human misery caused by Democrat policies.

I actually have a letter from a sex slave house out of Rockport [Texas] from a search warrant I ran some years ago, that articulates it,” Sheriff Boyd told the Epoch Times.

“It takes 8 to 13 years to buy your freedom once you come into the United States.”

Boyd said Houston is the first major destination for many illegal aliens once they get across the border into Texas.

“Once they get to Houston, where they think they’re going to be shipped out to their families, they’re not,” he said.

In reality, what happens is once they get to Houston, they’re then told that they owe another $5,000, $10,000, depending on where they’re from and how much money is invested in them. And they have to work that debt off.

The Epoch Times reports: Working off the debt can involve anything from hospitality work, landscaping, factory work, through to forced prostitution and drug trafficking, he said.

Boyd said his office caught a female smuggling three female illegal immigrants in her car last year.

We brought them here to jail. And what we found out was that those three females who thought they were going to be brought here and reunited with their family, were actually going to be taken to Chinatown in Houston and put it into sex slavery,” Boyd said.

“The smuggler actually had the fake social security cards in her underwear.

Goliad Sheriff Roy Boyd says Democrat open border policies cause an immense amount of human misery

Federal immigration officials have long said that every illegal immigrant who crosses the U.S. southern border has to pay the Mexican cartel in control of that area of the border, known as a “plaza.”

Fees vary depending on the nationality of the border crosser and what type of “service” they’re paying for. It’s cheaper for those who want to cross and then turn themselves over to Border Patrol, although it’s still pricier for foreign nationals traveling from farther afield such as China, Africa, or the Middle East.

For the individuals who want to avoid Border Patrol and get smuggled to their destination city in the United States, it costs more and involves more complicated logistics.

A recent Justice Department indictment of four Guatemalan smugglers revealed that the organization charged people between $10,000 and $12,000 to be brought from Guatemala to the United States illegally. Several Chinese illegal aliens have previously revealed they paid $15,000 to get into the country.

These aliens, who evade Border Patrol, are recorded as “gotaways” if agents or cameras detect their presence.

So far this fiscal year, Border Patrol agents have recorded more than 800,000 known gotaways, according to former Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Tom Homan and several Customs and Border Protection sources.

In 2014, during an unprecedented surge of unaccompanied minors crossing the border, the Office of Refugee Resettlement placed eight children into the hands of traffickers, according to a report by the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, released in 2018.

The traffickers put the children into forced labor on an egg farm in Marion, Ohio,” the report states. “The children worked for no pay for 12 hours a day, six to seven days a week, and lived in deplorable conditions. The traffickers threatened them and their families with violence if the children did not comply with them.”

The traffickers lured the children into the United States over a four-month period, with promises of education and a better life, the report said.

There are a lot more slaves than people realize. It’s going on within our own sight, but we don’t recognize it, because it doesn’t look like what the History Channel tells us slavery looks like,” Boyd said.

And slavery is perpetuated, continued, and expands at a constant rate. That’s what we’re seeing.”
