The Covid-19 pandemic and the government’s response to it has harmed our civil liberties and created a large number of social and economic issues.  One that is rarely discussed is a rapid increase in sex trafficking.  Sex traffickers took advantage of desperation caused by the pandemic across the world to bring more people in to the sex trafficking business, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.

Last week during and after the Super Bowl, authorities in California made nearly 500 arrests related to human trafficking.  Authorities and advocacy groups say that major sporting events usually result in an uptick in sex trafficking.  The Gateway Pundit Reports

Authorities on Tuesday announced the results of a statewide crackdown on human trafficking that resulted in nearly 500 arrests and more than 80 sex workers being helped.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva detailed the results of the weeklong campaign, dubbed Operation Reclaim and Rebuild, which involved dozens of agencies around California. Villanueva said 34 people suspected of trafficking or exploiting sex workers were arrested, along with 201 people who were allegedly caught trying to buy sex. He did not account for the remaining arrests. About six dozen adults and eight minors were “rescued,” the sheriff said.

“All across the state, law enforcement agencies joined us to send a message to pimps, exploiters and buyers that it is unacceptable to buy another human being for sexual purposes,” Villanueva said.

Alan Smyth, CEO of the advocacy group Saving Innocence, confirmed that big sporting events “absolutely garner an increase in trafficking of both adults and minors.”

Unsurprisingly, our pourous borders under the Biden regime have only worsened the sex trafficking epidemic.  In Biden’s first year in office, nearly 2 million illegal immigrants were apprehended at the border.

Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tn.) has been one of Biden’s fiercest critics, she had this to say about how Biden’s disastrous immigration policy has aided human traffickers.  “The administration’s refusal to secure the border has made traffickers’ jobs easier. These criminals prey on the desperate and vulnerable, and the administration’s decision to suspend President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” rule, halt border wall construction, and expand the already long list of available taxpayer programs has sent thousands upon thousands of migrants right into their hands.  “
