FBI agents arrested notorious Jeffrey Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell, who is alleged to have played a key role in Epstein’s sex trafficking ring, according to NBC news, citing senior law enforcement sources. Maxwell was arrested on Thursday in New Hampshire and is expected to show in court later today, according to the report.

Maxwell, once Epstein’s girlfriend, is alleged to have groomed dozens of teenage girls for Epstein’s sexual abuse. A number of those women have sued Epstein and allege that Maxwell played a key role in his illicit operation.

Epstein was arrested nearly one year ago, but died what was initially reported as by suicide in a New York prison, according to investigators. However, the lack of video footage in one of the country’s most secure prisons and an autopsy showing injuries more common in strangulation murders have had some questioning.

The Department of Justice is still investigating the convicted sex offender’s cause of death.

Report: over 85,000 migrant children ‘lost’ could be in labor market or sex trafficked

A report from the Department of Health and Human Services has prompted twenty-two state attorneys general to write a letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra and Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Christopher Wray.

A report issued this month by the Department of Health and Human Services stated more than 85,000 migrant children could be lost. Tragically, many of those children likely were forced into the labor market or sex trafficked. The attorneys general said the Biden administration needs to find these missing children.

“By law, the Department of Health and Human Services is responsible for keeping these children safe when they arrive,” the attorneys general said in their letter. “That responsibility includes reuniting children with family or placing them with a sponsor who will protect them from trafficking and exploitation. But that Department is not living up to its responsibilities, and the cost of that failure is tens of thousands of missing children.”

The letter asks for information to be provided on when the children were last seen and what safeguards are in place to ensure they are placed with family members.

“The Department of Health and Human Services must ensure that it is not handing over children to criminals and sex traffickers,” the attorneys general said. “It cannot do so if it does not know to whom it is handing these children.”

The Center Square reports that Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird led the coalition along with Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch and Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes.

“Losing 85,000 kids is like losing the entire population of Sioux City,” Bird said. “This is unacceptable. As a mom, it makes me sick to know that many of these missing kids have been trapped into forced labor and exploited by heinous sex traffickers. It’s the federal government’s job to keep these children safe. I’ve joined with 21 other attorneys general in demanding that the Biden Administration immediately locate and protect these children.”
