  • Incomplete news is more like it. Yes wonderful they are trying to get them out of that lifestyle but why were they there in the first place. Many of them probably ran from child protection agencies and now they are right back at square one. How many of them will be returning to the streets after these sweeps are over?

  • Great they got them out, makes me wonder how they got there to begin with.

  • It is wonderful that our law enforcement got them out, but is it just temporary? I mean, if these kids were runaways they were running away from something. If the child protection agency can get them into good homes where they can get the support and therapy they need, then this will be a better situation.

  • i think that i watched a program and a lot of the girls are actually taken from Mexico right off of the streets. some one just comes and takes them and then sells them for sex and keeps the money and they do it over and over again because they can.

  • these children are not their by choice in the first place. they are stolen and taken from families through out the world. they are sold and used for sex in other countries that they are trapped in. different language and are kept close so no chance to run away. this is a very sad situation so i'm glad to hear that they got out of there. @ least that few.
