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.

Bill O’Reilly: ‘INSANE’ how badly Kamala & Biden handled border crisis

Vice President Kamala Harris — tasked by President Biden to handle the current border crisis — is currently on, what Bill O'Reilly calls, 'the befuddlement tour.' So not only has Joe Biden ruined the border situation beyond repair, O'Reilly explains, he's now also chosen somebody who seemingly is incapable of solving problems to fix the problem. O'Reilly says it's 'INSANE' how badly they've handled this situation and that it's time for Americans to take a stand, show the government some backlash, and finally say 'enough!'

Biden's Hostile Takeover: The Great Reset of America

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.
