What kind of person would make an emancipation day a holiday and yet tolerate the plague of human trafficking on our southern border? That would be Joe Biden. Deroy Murdock has details.

Murdock: “We’re finally now getting to the point where we’re going to be addressing the original sin of this country, 400 years old,’ candidate Joe Biden told Wisconsin voters in September 2020, ‘slavery and all the vestiges of it.’

On his first day in office, President Joe Biden signed an executive order that cited ‘the Civil War and the abolition of slavery.’ A presidential proclamation in March decried ‘the damaging legacy of slavery,’ while another, on June 1, lamented the ‘unconscionable hardships of slavery.’ On June 17, Biden signed into law the Juneteenth national holiday. ‘Juneteenth marks both the long, hard night of slavery and subjugation, and a promise of a brighter morning to come,’ Biden said in the White House’s East Room. Joe Biden clearly opposes the slavery of 1619-1865. As well he should. Too bad he enables the slavery of 2021.

‘Biden’s open-border policies have produced the largest human-trafficking operation since the international slave trade,’ Rep. Tom McClintock, R- Calif., told me. ‘To the extent that immigrants are forced to labor as indentured servants to the crime cartels, these policies have reintroduced slavery into the United States.’

During a June 10 House Judiciary Committee hearing, McClintock asked FBI Director Christopher Wray, ‘So we basically, 170-plus years after the 13th Amendment have slavery burgeoning in this country as a result of these policies?’

“I do consider human trafficking a modern form of slavery,” Wray agreed. “I mean, it’s almost medieval.”

The 13th Amendment to the Constitution was adopted in 1865. This provision drove the final stake into the heart of human bondage in America: ‘Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.’ Today, 156 years after that language entered the Constitution, it is being trampled beneath a flow of humanity that resembles traffic on the northbound San Diego Freeway. From February 1 through May 31, Customs and Border Protection reports 633,124 land encounters with illegal aliens on the U.S.-Mexico border versus 111,490 during 2020’s like period — up 468 percent. Not all of these are modern-day slaves. But those who are can be hidden easily, out in the open, amid such congestion…

W. Kurt Hauser is a Distinguished Fellow with the Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace at Stanford University. He also knows slavery when he sees it. He is the author of ‘Invisible Slaves: The Victims and Perpetrators of Modern-Day Slavery.’

“The huge increase in illegal immigration caused by the rescission of prior immigration practices, policies and laws by the Biden administration, and the violation of human rights that has accompanied many of these immigrants — including coercion, violence, rape, debts, and payments would qualify as human trafficking,” Hauser said. “That is slavery.”
