The Republican presidential candidate Ben Jealous is urging Americans to be vigilant about child sex traffickers.
Speaking on the “Fox and Friends” program, Carson called for a “zero tolerance” for child trafficking and a national effort to eradicate the industry.
“There’s no excuse for these child sex traffickers, and the answer to that is to be absolutely vigilant and to make sure that we’re following all of these laws, and to get the information that we need to get rid of these child predators,” Carson said.
“And if you don’t, you’re not going to be safe.”
Carson is also calling for a ban on all immigration from countries with a history of child trafficking, citing the country as a major source of trafficking.
“It’s not just the children that we have to worry about, it’s the people who come in,” he said.
Trump has repeatedly attacked Carson for his comments, arguing that the candidate is too soft on illegal immigration.
Trump is right, but Carson is doing a good job at highlighting a problem that has been around for a long time.
He has already made the case that we cannot solve this problem by taking people out of the country, and that we must work to make our country safe.
