Human Trafficking Survivor: 'One Day Became Two, Weeks Became Months, and Then Years'

Turn on the news these days and what do you see? College campuses turned into “warzones,” fringe radicals fighting in the streets, and professional athletes taking a knee during the National Anthem. But while Americans tear each other apart over what we consider to be injustice and oppression, unspeakable acts of very real abuse are going on all over the world.

Right now, more than 40 million people are enslaved. That’s more than the total number of slaves that existed during the height of the slave trade in the 1700 and 1800’s.

“I reached a point where my whole life collapsed …”

Today on the show, Glenn talks with Karla Jacinto, a former victim of human trafficking in Mexico. Karla was only 12 years old when she was targeted by a sex-trafficker who lured her away from her abusive mother with kind words and promises of a better life. Instead, her life became a living hell.

For the next four years, Karla was forced into prostitution, working from 10 am to midnight, seven days a week. If she displeased her captures in any way she was severely beaten and burned. If she attempted to escape, her traffickers threatened to harm or even kill her family members.

“I began to just close my eyes and client, after client, after client came in, constantly,” said Karla. “I reached a point where my whole life collapsed in that moment. One day became two, weeks became months, and then years.”

My life is a bank page and I am its only author. This is Karla’s story.

In 2008, at the age of 16, Karla was rescued during a human trafficking sting. She has since become an outspoken advocate against human trafficking, telling her heart-wrenching tale at various events, to the US Congress, and even Pope Francis at the Vatican . Her story has gained international attention and helped shed light on the terrible crimes being committed in Mexico.

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…

Megyn Kelly UNCENSORED: It's Not Time to Unify, It's Time to FIGHT | Ep 88

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show." Now, Megyn and Glenn break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, Leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner … and is Fox News finished? Megyn and Glenn reminisce on their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with Donald Trump) and also give a look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. And the best takeaway from her time at NBC? "Jane Fonda was an ass."

And, terrifyingly, the phases she describes are STRIKINGLY similar to the events and changes we've experienced in America over the past year.
