Sound Of Freedom was the surprise hit movie of the summer, earning over $183 million domestically and over $210 million internationally. The movie is based on the true story of the real life government agent Tim Ballard (Jim Caviezel), who quit his job to travel to Colombia to save a little girl who had been sex trafficked.
Now, Ballard is speaking out to issue a major demand to President Joe Biden that every American needs to see.

Ballard Testifies Before Congress
While testifying before the House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, Ballard claimed that adults in the United States would have an easier time taking custody of an unaccompanied child released from the border than they would an animal from a pet shelter.
“It’s more difficult to adopt a cat from a shelter in the United States than it is to go down and take one of these children out of the custody of [the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services] and claim that I’m the sponsor,” Ballard said, according to The Washington Examiner.
“This must stop. We must begin with finding the 85,000 missing unaccompanied children, which this administration claims is not their problem anymore,” he continued.
President Trump met with Tim Ballard four years ago to discuss human trafficking and the border.

SECURE Act Of 2023
This came after Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) announced the new legislation that he called “Safeguarding Endangered Children, Unaccompanied and at Risk of Exploitation Act of 2023” or as the “SECURE Act of 2023.” Fox News reported that the bill is meant to “compel the federal government to report on efforts to locate, establish contact with, conduct wellness checks on, and investigate any suspicion of human trafficking related to the approximately 85,000 unaccompanied migrant children released from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) custody ‘with whom subsequent contact has been lost.’”
“Due to the failed open border policies of the Biden administration, we must address the tens of thousands, really hundreds of thousands of unaccompanied minors now at risk for trafficking and abuse,” Smith said, going on to describe Ballard as a “hero.”

Ballard then spoke out to say that HHS data states that 85,000 children have “disappeared into the belly of the country that consumes more child exploitation material than any other country on the planet.”
“This should horrify every American,” he said. “We refuse to enforce the borders.”
“Politics over children is what we’re doing in this country,” Ballard continued. “Interestingly, President Castro of Honduras is very socialist, the president of Guatemala is very conservative, and yet they told me the exact same thing. Their women and their children are being put in a situation that is terrifying. And it’s all thanks to who? The United States of America. Because we open our borders and it’s a vacuum. The traffickers love us.”
“According to the New York Post, the traffickers along the Mexican border are making $14 million a day. I believe that,” he added. “I spent ten years on that border. I believe it. Millions are coming through these countries. They can’t handle all the movement through the countries. Children are being lost along the way.”

Ballard Doubles Down
Not stopping there, Ballard claimed that the Biden administration’s policies result in that Border Patrol, DHS and HHS personnel “have become child trafficking delivery services.”
“I propose to you that foreign children are children of God. Just as much as any American child is a child of God. And they deserve the exact same protection,” Ballard said. “Background checks, DNA, the whole gamut. Do not release these children into the United States. 85,000 are missing, and that’s thanks to the Biden administration. They did this.”
Ballard concluded with a line from Sound Of Freedom, saying, “We do all this because God’s children are not for sale.”
Big news out of Utah! Tim Ballard, the subject of the movie Sound of Freedom, may run in 2024 for the senate seat currently held by Mitt Romney, who just recently announced his retirement.

Child trafficking is a major problem that is swept under the rug far too often in this country. God bless Ballard for doing everything he can to both fight against it and bring it to the attention of the American people!
