An unnamed trafficker from Central America told Fox News contributor Sara Carter that as part of their illegal and lucrative cross-border activities, cartels harvest children’s organs and smuggle narcotics into their bodies.
The trafficker, whose face and voice were hidden, said to Carter that “in most cases, they wanted to sell their organs, therefore that is the reason they abduct kids.”
He said, “Occasionally they remove the organs and load the body with drugs so they might transport it past the border.”
The trafficker claims that wealthy individuals are buying the organs from illegal clinics all across the world.
According to the trafficker, using youngsters generates big revenues.
The trafficker described the cartels’ interest in the profitable business as “they simply care about the money.”
He said that sexual predators also purchase minors from the cartels.
“I’ve heard that some locals have quite particular preferences for particular ethnicities or age groups. As a result, the cartels search for individuals walking around, and when they see someone who fits that criteria, they often take them,” the trafficker explained.
Alejandro Giammattei, the president of Guatemala, claimed in June that traffickers had taken advantage of the Biden administration’s “confusing” immigration policy and utilized youngsters to enter the United States illegally.
“The messages have caused confusion at the moment. What the coyotes say there is not convenient for them [the migrants] when they say we are going to codify all the children who have their parents here. Let’s check. Bring the kids and grab them, That youngster could or might not be related. Giammattei stated to the DCNF that coyotes use people’s desires for children as a form of manipulation.”
Since October, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents have encountered over 1,900,000 migrants at the southern border, 128,845 of whom are unaccompanied minors.
