Pimps may have cheered when the GOP

presented herself and her office as only part of a larger team.
“These latest extraditions and the
reunification of a victim with her child are the culmination of a sustained and
committed effort by the United States government and its partners in Mexico to
work together, and to work with their partners in the community, to identify,
prosecute, and punish sex traffickers, and to restore the dignity and lives of

team on these trafficking cases,” Tomatore says.
Tomatore was as stunned as anybody
who has worked with Lynch that the Republicans would have chosen a trafficking
bill to block her confirmation.
“It is so bizarre that they held up
her confirmation on trafficking when she has taken up such leadership on this
issue,” Tomatore says.
In successfully seeking the
extradition of three Tenancingo brothers who worked as traffickers back in
2011, the Lynch team in Brooklyn submitted affidavits from three of their
victims. One, identified only as Jane Doe 1, reports that she was 14 years old
in February 2005, when she met a young man named Benito Lopez-Perez in Puebla,
and Lopez-Perez took everyone back to their homes,” she recounts. “Lopez-Perez
dropped everyone else off first, and I was left alone with him in the car.
Lopez-Perez told me he was going to pick up his jacket at his house in
Tenancingo, a town next to Puebla, before taking me to my house.”
She goes on: “However, after we got
to his house, Lopez-Perez invited me in to meet his family. Lopez-Perez left me
alone with his mother, who tried to tell me how wonderful her son was and how
lucky I was to be with him…When Lopez-Perez came back, he told me that he was
not going to take me home. He took me to a bedroom and raped me. I tried to
resist, but he did not stop.”
“It is so bizarre that they held up her confirmation on
trafficking when she has taken up such leadership on this issue.”
She continues: “The following day, I
begged Lopez-Perez to let me go...Lopez-Perez then locked me in a room for most
of the day...He told me that I could make money working as a prostitute in a
bar…When I told him I did not want to work in a bar, he got angry and he told
me I was going to do it whether I liked it or not. After he again locked me in
the room for hours, he came back and asked me whether I had changed my mind.
When I said no, he hit me and told me to shut up, and said that he would never
let me leave. He threatened to kill my whole family if I tried to leave.”
Lopez-Perez explained the rules to me, which were that I could never go out
alone and that I had to do everything he said. I was also told that I had to
obey Lopez-Perez’s sister, or she would beat me…Lopez-Perez’s sister took me to
a bar in order for me to start working as a prostitute...[She] put me in a room
with a man who raped me. Then [she] took money from the man and told me that I
had to give her all the money I had and that she would search me to make sure I
did not keep any of the money.”
“After I had worked for Lopez-Perez
for approximately five or six months and I had turned 15, Lopez-Perez told me
that we were going to cross the border to the United States because the work
would be easier and he would make more money…He made arrangements with
‘coyotes’ to smuggle us across the border…We were transported in vehicles to
Phoenix, Arizona, and then to Las Vegas, Nevada...We took an airplane to New
York using fake IDs.”
“When we arrived in New York, I was
forced to provide sexual services to clients at private residences, being
transported from appointment to appointment by people who worked for
Lopez-Perez as if it were a home delivery food service. On any given day, the
minimum number of clients I served was 10 and the maximum was 40. I was forced
to turn over all the money to the person who transported me, and if I tried to
keep any of the money for myself, I would receive a beating.”
“This lifestyle continued for more
than five years. During this time I was too afraid to escape, since I was
beaten constantly by Lopez-Perez and other people who worked for him, and I had
been warned that if I tried to leave, they would kill my family. Lopez-Perez
would beat me and rape me regularly to control me. He would beat me with his
fists and with objects like telephone cables and belts. Even after Lopez-Perez
went back to Mexico, I was never left alone. There was always someone with me
who was watching me to make sure I did not escape.”
“In or about August or September
2010, I escaped with the help of a Mexican couple I had met at a Laundromat…I
went to a domestic violence center, and from there I was placed in a shelter
for victims of this type of violence.”
Lopez-Perez and his two brothers
were extradited from Tenancingo, whose status as Pimpville has been described in detail by Erica Pearson of the New York Daily News. The
three pleaded guilty in Brooklyn federal court. Jane Doe 1 testified at
“I can only describe my life in New
York as five years in hell,” she said. “From the day I arrived in New York
until the day I escaped, Benito forced me to work seven days a week. I was just
merchandise for him. His associates, his clients treated me like an animal.”
She added, “At the end of the day I
was bleeding and in great pain caused by these men.”
after severe beatings.
“I was upset because he hadn’t
killed me and that I had to live another day of torture.”
Lopez-Perez got 18 years. So did his
brother, Anastasio Romero-Perez, who had romanced a 14-year-old, then forced
her into prostitution, at one point kicking her so hard in the stomach that she
Another brother, Jose Gabino
Barrientos-Perez, got 10 years. He had pressured the mother of two of his
children into prostitution, saying they needed to pay medical bills for their
first child, who had been born prematurely. He then smuggled her to New York to
work for Lopez-Perez, where she learned the brothers had also snared her sister
at 14. The sisters were subsequently rescued by law enforcement.
“Barrientos-Perez accused me of
talking to law enforcement authorities, and he threatened to not let me see my
children again,” the mother-victim says in court papers.
courtroom to begin their prison terms, Lynch issued a statement.
“We hope that these sentences bring
some measure of closure to the victims as they attempt to heal from the mental
and physical abuse inflicted by these defendants,” she said.
Thanks to the Lynch team, the three
brothers and a number of other traffickers were absent from the pimp contingent
in Tenancingo’s annual procession in honor of St. Michael the Archangel in
September 2014, and the same month in 2015.
The pimps still at
liberty—particularly the five on the 10 Most Wanted List—could not have been
happy to learn in November 2014 that their nemesis had been nominated to become the new U.S. attorney general.
Then, along with the pimps behind
bars, they were given cause for amusement when Senate Republicans blocked a
confirmation vote with, of all things, a human trafficking bill.
Anybody who gives such monsters
reason to laugh brings shame on those who give it.
No doubt Senate Majority Leader
Mitch McConnell would be welcome if he heads down to Tenancingo next September
and joins the padrotes in their procession.
The article amply highlights the underhand dealings of the US Republican lawmakers
with the motherfucker pimps those who blocked the confirmation of Lynch to
become the AG to deal with Sex Traffickers (PIMPS). It is a shame to be
Lawmaker and taking money to do disservice to the community to the people.
People those who all voted these bastards to look after their interest, safety and security.
What is the difference between accepting money to block the confirmation of
lynch by putting up a bill by these horrendous filthy stinking Republican
Lawmakers, in lieu of huge money from the PIMPS by these lawmakers and sucking
stools to pick up money from night soils of latrines with their mouth.
Who to blame the innocent voters or the incest practicing motherfuckers, shelter
given to this ZIONISTS Nazi’s children in US. Boot them out at once.
