EXCLUSIVE: Whistleblower Alleges Federal Government Acts as ‘Middleman’ for Cartel Child Trafficking

The U.S. government is taking an active role as “middleman” for international child trafficking, according to explosive allegations from a whistleblower.

The whistleblower, a federal employee named Tara Rodas who has worked in various government sectors, told The Epoch Times in an interview that she had direct experience with trafficked children while working at a processing facility in Pomona, California. While there, she learned that the program had become a front for a massive human smuggling ring driven by Mexican drug cartels.

The United States currently operates a network of processing facilities for migrant children along the southern border. Many children who enter the United States illegally come on the dime of drug cartels, who in turn sell the children into sex slavery or child labor.

At the processing facilities, Rodas explained, case managers would work to reunite illegal children with family members inside the United States.

But in reality, Rodas said, many “sponsors,” people already inside the country willing to take and care for the children, had no relationship to them at all.

Rodas has spent the past 20 years working for various government agencies, including the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE). She is set to testify about her allegations at a hearing before the House of Representatives on April 26.

In 2021, President Joe Biden sent out an urgent call to federal employees, telling them that Spanish speakers were needed at the border to help process the influx of illegal immigrant children. In 2021, 120,000 illegal migrant children were processed by the federal government, a massive increase over previous years. The purported goal of the reunification program was to ensure the children’s safety by helping transport them to sponsors.

Rodas, the wife of a Spanish-speaking immigrant from El Salvador, said, “When I learned they needed Spanish speakers to help and that it was going to be working with the children, I volunteered. I volunteered to help the Biden administration place these children with sponsors here in the United States.”

Asked why she agreed to answer Biden’s call, Rodas said it was for the children.
