WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Democrat Party continues swerving to the left. The newest zany policy to be embraced by a 2020 front runner: decriminalized prostitution.
“I think so. I do,” Kamala Harris declared when asked if she thought “sex work” should not be treated as a crime in an interview with The Root published Tuesday.
“I was advocating then, that we have to stop arresting these prostitutes and instead go after the johns and the pimps, because we were criminalizing the women,” she said. “[Backpage] was making money off of the sale of youth. So I called for them to be shut down, and I have no regrets about that.”
Harris attempts to make a distinction, suggesting that those engaged in the active exploitation of others or active harm of others, should not be “free of criminal prosecution,” but it’s all run by the same people, making Harris’ distinctions meaningless semantic, philosophical justifications for the dispicable practice of modern human slavery in some cases.
Problematically for Harris, when law enforcement is withdrawn in a sensitive area like trafficking, acts between nonconsenting adults are also — de facto — decriminalized.
Individuals involved in perpetrating such horrific behavior are given even greater freedom to exact harm on children that caught up in the sex industry (either through documented and popular illegal immigration pathways, or because the vendors for “consenting adults” are also the same vendors peddling child sex victims to elites.), according to law enforcement.
We can take the word of law enforcement officers in California, like Officer Tony Herrera, where such decriminalization policies have been tried already, leading some to suggest that it is a de facto legalization of child trafficking.
“Make no mistake, California: This is the legalization of child prostitution,” Officer Tony Herrera writes at Washington Examiner. For his safety, his department and jurisdiction are not provided.
California SB 1322 “exempts persons under 18 years of age from criminal statutes regarding soliciting, engaging in, and loitering for purposes of prostitution if that minor receives money or other consideration.”
Further, it “will require a law enforcement officer to refer the juvenile to a county social services agency.”
There is no amount of spin or “fact check” articles that can change the reality that children can now engage in sex for money without fear of reprisal. In a thinly veiled attempt to save face supporters of this harmful policy are saying this statement is “misguidedly” referencing pimps and johns. Pedophilia is illegal, adult prostitution is illegal, soliciting sex is illegal — yet the act of child prostitution is now exempted from these laws.
Accirding to Herrera, prostitution is not like other legitimate industries, where there are bright lines, where it’s possible to decriminalize one thing, without also lightening up on another thing. In the human trafficking business, it’s all the same thing, and all the business is concentrated in very few hands — as opposed to numerous and diverse market options.
As Herrera explains,
Not only did California tie law enforcement’s hands and remove their only opportunity to address the source of this heinous issue — California has now provided pimps more incentive to recruit and exploit minors: only these prostitutes would be shielded from arrest and jailing.
Harris does not seem to think these issues matter, if her statements Tuesday are any indicator.
“But when you’re talking about consenting adults, I think that yes, we should really consider that we can’t criminalize consensual behavior, as long as no one is being harmed. But at the point that anyone is being harmed or exploited, then we have to understand that’s a different matter,” she explained.

Democrat Congressman Dismisses Low Black Unemployment under Trump
Even with Black unemployment at its lowest rate in nearly 50 years under the Trump administration’s watch, South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn dismissed these numbers.
Clyburn said these numbers are “not true” because Blacks “were fully employed during slavery.” So, “it all depends on how you measure” it, he asserted.
On Fox News’s Your World With Neil Cavuto, host Neil Cavuto chatted with Clyburn about the Trump economy. Clyburn asked whether the president’s policies are beneficial to Black Americans.
“Let’s leave the words aside,” stated Cavuto. “Whether you like his [Trump’s] style or not, or tweets or not, or comments or not, he’s delivered the goods for a lot of African-Americans has he not? With record-low unemployment levels for one group or another. Among Africa-Americans, you don’t think that’s something constructive?”
Clyburn, who voted to impeach Trump back in December, said, “Come on, Neil. No, no, it’s not true. I’m saying that the African-American unemployment is not the lowest it’s ever been unless you count slavery.”
“We were fully employed during slavery,” claimed Clyburn. “So it all depends on how you measure this up.”
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the national unemployment rate for African American workers, 16 years and older, was 5.4% in August 2019. Michael W. Chapman of CNS New said this was the lowest rate in recorded history.
The BLS data for African American begins in 1972, almost 50 years ago. According to a chart that Chapman posted, the unemployment rate numbers from July through December 2019 were in the 5’s range — 5.9, 5.4, 5.5, 5.5, 5.6 and 5.9. In January 2020, the rate was 6.0 percent.
Clearly Democrat elected officials are in denial about Trump’s economic success.
However, if the Trump administration wants to win black votes, it will need to push immigration restriction given how unskilled labor tends to displace black labor.
