Cruz: DNA Testing Shows Kids Are Being Used As ‘Pawns’ By Traffickers

By Patrick Howley

Texas Republican senator Ted Cruz’s recent Senate floor speech addressed the success President Trump has had in catching human traffickers with his “Rapid DNA testing” program. Implemented by the Department of Homeland Security as a pilot program at select locations, the DNA testing — which involves a cheek swab and roughly 90 minutes of testing time — is already catching human traffickers and making some smugglers admit their wrongdoing before even taking the test.

“I also learned of a recent pilot program that used rapid DNA tests to discover whether these family units were real. Nearly 30 percent were found to be fraudulent in the Rio Grande Valley-in other words, the adults bringing kids into the United States illegally weren’t related to the children,” Cruz stated.

“This is one of the most tragic elements of the crisis: the number of children who are being trafficked, who are being physically abused, sexually abused, and neglected. Often, they are being used as pawns,” Cruz said.

Former Republican Arizona governor Jan Brewer also said that President Donald Trump’s program is catching human traffickers and “fraudsters.”

Opponents of the program include CNN and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

If Trump was supposedly separating families as the Left claims, why fight a test to ensure parenthood so that these “families” can stay together?

Former Republican Arizona governor Jan Brewer said that President Donald Trump’s program — so far tested as a pilot — to test the DNA of adult migrants who bring children to the southern border is already catching human traffickers and “fraudsters.”

The Department of Homeland Security has rolled out a “pilot” program at a few select locations on the border that involves cheek-swabbing the migrants who come over the border and analyzing the results in the space of about an hour and a half.

Opponents of the program include CNN and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
