Maybe if they hadn't tried to sneak Brazilians in, they wouldn't have gotten caught. I mean, people notice that many people.

I see that "human trafficking" continues to be be expanded. Soon it will encompass jaywalking, shoplifting and giving the side-eye.

So uh

This might not be the best time to ask but... Can I still pickup my to-go order at Taste of Brazil?

What happens after the debt is paid?
Do they automatically become citizens?
 
2022-10-05 5:26:19 PM  
Okay now arrest DeSantis, Abbott, and Gaetz. We are all equal before the law right?
 
2022-10-05 5:26:22 PM  
What did you expect them to do?
No one wants to work today.

Sure, who hasn't smuggled a few dozen individuals and families into the country for extortionary sums, taken their documents, and put them to work in actual slavery conditions while paying them 100 dollars a week? BRB, I hear knocking at the door.

Did they find the email server?

?

Human Trafficking is the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of people through force, fraud or deception, with the aim of exploiting them for profit.


"(The source) stated they were paid $3.00 per hour, did not receive any tips, and worked 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m." the author of the affidavit wrote.

The affidavit shows that several others described similar experiences. One cooperating witness told the investigation about working at Taste of Brazil seven days per week and receiving only $100 in cash each week.

And again, just open borders. Like, fark... this whole hubbub about who we think should and shouldn't be here sure does cause a lot of atrocities on about every level, for seemingly very little reason.

From what the article describes, it's kinda dictionary definition human trafficking.
It doesn't always involve sex work, if that's what you're thinking.

Looks like they were smuggling in Brazilians. Sounds like a hairy situation.

"Brazilian fusion" means that there's an illegal cosmetic surgery room in the back.

Don't you worry, they find ways to make sure the debt is inescapable.
 
2022-10-05 6:04:40 PM  
OK. Now how much covid relief money did they get?
 
2022-10-05 6:11:41 PM  
Jesse James? That's a different criminal.

Those schemes get busted in Atlanta frequently. Most often they are Mexican or Salvadoran, but there was a Chinese group done not long ago.

Biden has a family friend whose second cousin recently sold a property within 100 miles of there.   Study it out sheeple!
 
2022-10-05 7:01:51 PM  
I'm surprised.  Normally it is the Pakistani restaurants that are busted for human trafficking, kidnapping, and slavery.
 
2022-10-05 7:16:49 PM  
Did Pelosi rat them out?
 
2022-10-05 7:25:50 PM  
Well, at least it's nice to hear of a father and son who stayed close into adulthood. I'm sure I'd like it if my kid grew up to work with me. I mean, we wouldn't be smuggling people, but at least they're together

Those are just microtraffickings.  Now pushing a friend across state line...

"a source told agents that he was smuggled into the country in 2018 along with his spouse and two children for a fee of approximately $32,000. They paid approximately half of the fee upfront and were required to pay off the balance in installments of $1,450 starting six months after they arrived in the U.S."

Paying $32,000 vs free tickets to MV 🤔

Say what you will about human trafficking, but at least it's an ethos.

Human arrived cold. Would not buy again.

This kind of human trafficking is fairly common in the Chinese restaurant circuit. In big American cities there are job agencies where they only speak Mandarin and they place people out in the boonies at Chinese restaurants all over the midwest, for example. They don't speak English much of the time so they can't ask for help and they can't typically leave the restaurant or the owner's home, etc. Another industry where this happens is the massage parlor industry for sex trafficking. Human trafficking can take different forms like labor trafficking or sex trafficking and it happens to adults as much as to children.

I was hoping the restaurants would be Waffle Houses. Shame.
