I can’t believe they are mothers!
While many women around the world can only dream of having children of their own, these mothers decided to sell their own children off to sex tourists for money.
The Philippines, like some other Southeast Asian countries, has an unfortunate reputation for prostitution and sex tourism. It’s a huge industry domestically with an estimated 800,000 men, women and, sadly, children working in the trade.
Through an asset, Mike, who is an undercover agent from the ICE Homeland Security Investigation who posed as a s*xual tourist, they were able to record their ‘deal’ and eventually catch the suspects.
The accomplice asked the two women, “So could you tell me which ones I can do what with?” by way of asking what the children could do for him and which children he could “pay for.”
The man then asked: “She can do what?”
To which the woman casually answered: “S*x.”
After that, the two gave him the names of the little girls that are allowed for him to have sex with. As soon as there was an exchange of money, the two sisters were busted by the HSI and was brought in for questioning and further investigation. Thirteen children were taken away from them and were being comforted by a team of social workers.
HSI (Homeland Security Investigation) has been working on trying to bust them for two years already.
The country’s international image as a sex destination was largely a result of the US military presence here during and after World War II when “go go” or “girlie” bars flourished around the bases at Clark and Subic Bay.
