completely manipulated report comdemning venezuela, Honduras and Cuba for human trafiking and congratulating DR and mexico, lol using such a serious issue to black list countries for political reasons is what the US has always done, those reports are toilet paper.

This is the warm up by the US Gov’t to justify sending funds to the RD to continue the fight against trafficking.

What was not said in this DT article is “The United States assures the DR “does not meet the minimum standards” against human trafficking” – Hoy, July 19th.
The brevity of the DT article omitted to reveal the full context of Secretary Blinken’s broadcast. Yes, there were more convictions of traffickers. Omitted was the regularization of Venezelan immigration has reduced the risk of human trafficking. Omitted was “the government failed to provide justice or screen and assist Haitians and Dominicans of Haitian descent”.
