Leftists like to downplay the notion that migrant women and girls are sexually assaulted on a regular basis as they journey from their home countries across the United States border illegally. For this reason, we’ll likely soon hear about how the New York Times is being “too conservative” again with their story today that backs what President Trump has been saying for months.
The publication is not conservative, of course, but they do tend to do better journalism than their buddies at the Washington Post or CNN. They are less likely to hide a narrative-busting story like the one they published today about the rampant sexual assaults that befall women and girls on both sides of the southern border.
From today's NYT: "You Have To Pay With Your Body". The migrant rape crisis is very real, and it's why so many women turn to BC to survive it. "My son, I realized he was an innocent bystander in this situation and that it wasn’t his fault." https://t.co/tJpCCQp5Gh

As Ben Domenech noted, NPR had a similar piece. They, too, are a generally left-leaning news outlet. Like the New York Times and other news outlets, NPR knew the crisis of sexual assaults against migrants is too important to ignore for the sake of political narratives.
The saddest part of these stories – other than the pain caused to the victims themselves – is that the left continues to run with the lie that these crimes are not being perpetrated. It does not behoove their agenda to admit that the very people they often help to get people across the border illegally are the monsters who are violently raping women, taking the childhood away from innocent girls, and engaging in the sex trade that is plaguing the world.
They’re preventing many of these victims from even knowing what to expect by keeping the truth under wraps. So often in the tales we’re hearing from these women, they were shocked to find out that what President Trump and others have been saying for a long time is actually true. Why? Because listening to their “friends” on the left made them believe the trip was safe, the stories of rape were exaggerated, and all they had to do was cross the border so all their dreams could come true.
By fighting against border security, the “kinder” leftist politicians, journalists, and activists who are “protecting” illegal immigrants are directly enabling the violent sexual criminals destroying the lives of these women and children. This should infuriate every American.
