More Border Disorder
Austin police got a call about 2 p.m. Monday that "some individuals were being held against their will" in the 10800 block of Newmont Road...There's still a lot of facts to be uncovered to this story, but, in any event, it does raise another dark issue in the illegal immigration debate: the specter of human trafficking. Lax border enforcement creates opportunities for trafficking of persons across the border, and sets up the persons being transported for victimization by criminals, as my have been happening in this case. What's compassionate about that?
[Nina Pruneda, a spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement] said the nationalities of the people held in the duplex at Windy Trail and Newmont Road for several hours were unknown, but she confirmed that they were not U.S. citizens.
