BREAKING: Trump vows to institute death penalty for child traffickers after screening 'Sound of Freedom'

"I will urge Congress to ensure that anyone caught trafficking children across our border receives the death penalty immediately."

After seeing anti-human trafficking film Sound of Freedom earlier this week, President Trump has vowed to institute the death penalty for human traffickers if he earns a second term in the White House.

Trump held the screening in Bedminster, New Jersey, and spoke with filmmaker Eduardo Verástegui and starring actor Jim Caviezel, who plays federal agent Tim Ballard who made it his mission to investigate human trafficking and rescue children.

Verástegui was appointed as member of President Trump’s Advisory Commission on Hispanic Prosperity. He emphasized the importance of coming together as a society to address this pernicious evil and eradicate child trafficking. In a Fox interview, Caviezel called President Trump "the new Moses” and said, "he's got to be in there because he's going to go after the traffickers."

"When I'm back in the White House," Trump said in a Friday video, "I will immediately end the Biden border nightmare that traffickers are using to exploit vulnerable women and children. We will fully secure the border. I will wage war on the cartels just as I destroyed the ISIS caliphate, 100% gone, 100% destroyed. They'll come back now because we have a weak administration."

"I will use Title 42 to end the child trafficking crisis by returning all trafficked children to their families in their home countries and without delay, and I will urge Congress to ensure that anyone caught trafficking children across our border receives the death penalty immediately and that includes also for women, because women as you know are number one in trafficking. Children are actually number two," Trump continued.

Title 42 prevents illegal immigrants from waiting in the US while they apply for asylum, making them wait in Mexico as opposed to filling US courts and shelters while they wait. When the Biden administration lifted this restriction, thousands of immigrants crossed. Many were given court dates to appear years down the road. They are able to make new lives in the US and obtain working visas all before their cases have been heard.

Trump was vigilant against trafficking and drug cartels during his term as president, and has promised that he will being back those efforts if he secures a win in 2024. Biden's porous border policies are a far cry from Trump's border wall, a policy he campaigned on in 2016 and implemented once he took office.

"In one of my first acts in office, I signed an executive order targeting transnational criminal organizations that traffic and exploit innocent people. I signed the Frederick Douglass Trafficking Victims Prevention and Protection Reauthorization Act, authorizing $430 million to fight sex and labor trafficking," he said.
