Lake Rips Biden for Enabling Child Trafficking at Border

As part of his reelection bid, President Biden recently released an ad criticizing former President Donald Trump for separating children at the border. Arizona Senate candidate Kari Lake (R) discussed the advertisement in a recent appearance on Real America's Voice program American Sunrise, saying it only helped Trump because the Biden Administration has enabled the trafficking of children over the border, with over 85,000 kids unaccounted for.

Lake posted the clip to X (formerly Twitter), saying, "@JoeBiden has lost track of about 85,000 children who crossed the border. As a mother, I think of how these kids must be so afraid when they cross that border with a stranger or a trafficker, grownups who promise them the world & only intend to do them harm. It's horrifying. President Trump cares about those children. Biden does not."

Does Texas have a constitutional right to defy Supreme Court on protecting its border?

The Arizona Senate candidate was shocked at the first few seconds of the ad, accusing the Biden Administration of "grasping at straws."

One of the hosts suggested the ad would backfire as more Americans witness the effects of the border crisis and say, "Donald Trump is right," to which Lake agreed, reiterating that "when President Trump was separating children from the people they were crossing over with, he was trying to protect the children to make sure that they were not being sex trafficked. Biden is not doing that."

Additionally, Lake pointed out that over 85,000 children who crossed the border since Biden took office remain unaccounted for, although Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody said last April that the number could be as high as 250,000.

Lake called this "horrifying," and "I think as a mother, I think of the children who must be so afraid when they cross over with a stranger or somebody who is going to traffic them and what their life looks like once they crossed that border."

At the end of this January, Representative Kat Cammack (R-FL) spoke with The Floridian about how children are frequently "recycled" to cross with single adult male border crossers to expedite asylum claims and sent back to cross again with a different man.

More horrifically, Rep. Cammack added, "I met a nine-year-old girl who was an [Unaccompanied Alien Child], and she, on her journey, had been passed around and was gang-raped on the American side by members of the cartel. Nine years old."
