(ConservativeSense.com) – The US Department of Justice (DOJ) recently busted an Asian-run prostitution ring that was aimed at American elites and, some say, enabled by the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
Elites targeted by the prostitution ring include government contractors, military officers, and elected officials. According to a press release by the DOJ last Wednesday, the foreign-born suspects running the ring were listed as Americans. The defendants facing charges are Han Lee, 41; James Lee, 68; and Junmyung Lee, 30. All of them are originally from Korea.
It was revealed in the affidavit filed in court by the Justice Department that the alleged pimps passed through the border safeguards under the relaxed policies of President Joe Biden’s administration, particularly Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. One of the foreign nationals arrived on a visa back in 2014 and stayed long past its expiration. It also stated that the women used the airport in Los Angeles but didn’t state if they flew into the US.
Mayorkas’ policies seem to be forcing border officials to enable the influx of immigrant workers using B-1/B-2 visas (used for tourism and short-term business trips) to turn to black market employment after entering the US. He’s also lightened enforcement of illegal immigration laws at airports, such as those regarding people who overstay their visas. Mayorkas also said he wouldn’t pursue any illegals who don’t have felony convictions.
Republicans blame these policies for an increase in human trafficking, drug smuggling, and other criminal activity.
One of the concerns raised in the affidavit by the DOJ is the government’s concern about potential harm to itself through potential blackmail situations involving elites blackmailed into contact with minors. The affidavit notes that the customers of the busted ring “spanned a wide array” of “professional disciplines,” including politics, the pharmaceutical and medical industry, contractors, military officials, and more.
The affidavit said that the list “encompasses” only “a small sample of known customers” identified during the investigation, noting that “potentially hundreds” more remain unidentified.
