Senator Katie Britt Blasts Biden Over Disaster He Caused On Southern Border

 Sen. Katie Britt (R-AL) tore into President Joe Biden during an interview over the weekend for creating the catastrophe on the U.S. southern border.

Britt made the remarks during Fox News’ “Fox News Sunday” with host Shannon Bream when Bream asked her about a story that she told about a young girl who had been sex trafficked by the cartels. Britt was told the story by the victim herself, years after the entire ordeal happened.

Bream pressed Britt over the story, even though Britt was clear in her remarks that she spoke to a woman who recounted what she experienced as a child — thus making it obvious she was not directly tying the story to Biden. Mexican drug cartels are notorious for forcing women into sex trafficking.

“Look, I very specifically said, this is what President Biden did during his first 100 days. Minutes after coming into office, he stopped all deportations. He halted construction of the border wall, and he said I am going to give amnesty to millions. Those types of things act as a magnet to have more and more people here,” Britt explained. “I then said in his first 100 days, he had 94 executive actions and those executive actions didn’t just create the crisis, they invited it. I then contrasted it with my first 100 days.”

Britt contrasted Biden’s first 100 days in office with her first 100 days in office, noting that she repeatedly visited the border while Biden did not.

“The truth is — and the media knows this, yet they’re not covering it — that human trafficking has gone up under President Biden,” Britt noted. “If you look back under 2018, it was a $500 million industry, human trafficking by the drug cartels. It is now a $13 billion industry. Shannon, the drug cartels are winning under this. This is a story of what is happening now at an astronomical rate. And we have to bring attention to it. We have to tell those stories. And the liberal media needs to pay attention to it because there are victims all the way coming to the border. There are victims at the border. And then there are victims all throughout our country. And to me, it is disgusting to try to silence the voice of telling the story of what it is like to be sex trafficked when we know that that is one of the things that the drug cartels are profiting most off of.”

“I very clearly said, I spoke to a woman who told me about when she was trafficked, when she was 12,” she added. “So I didn’t say a teenager, I didn’t say a young woman, a grown woman, a woman when she was trafficked when she was 12. And so listening to her story, she is a victim’s right advocate who — who is telling this is what drug cartels are doing, this is how they’re profiting off of women. And it is disgusting. And so I am hopeful that it brings some light to it. And we can actually do something about human trafficking. And that’s what the media actually decides to cover.”
