It is no big news to anyone that human trafficking is taking place in Trinidad and Tobago.
That has been around for quite some time and most definitely our locals will be part of the network.
So no one should be surprised over this it is big business everywhere and T&T is no exception.
While there has been the capturing of some 66 Venezuelans in five days, who knows how many have come into the country undetected.
Well, your guess is good as mine.
Despite all efforts to secure our borders many are finding it still ease to get into the country. How and why? What do we need to do better most definitely we are not hitting the target.
Who knows what else is coming through our porous borders and maybe even those legitimate ports of entry we need to do better when it comes to protecting our borders.
To those in charge—and I’m not meaning to be unfairly critical—you must admit that you need to take border protection up to a new level for the safety of the citizens of this country.
With the great threat of COVID-19, these illegal entries are not helping. This big business of human trafficking must be dealt with many are being made slaves for all different reasons against their own will.
