Amidst the border crisis, sex trafficking has become the fastest growing international crime network surpassing the roughly $150 billion drug trade. Sara Carter invited GOYA CEO Robert Unanue onto the Sara Carter Show podcast to discuss the growing trend of sex and child trafficking at the border. Unanue has been an advocate for human trafficking victims all while running his business.
“He doesn’t care if someone tries to cancel him,” Carter said by way of introduction. “He is speaking up about these monsters. He is speaking out loud and clear. He has one of the biggest food corporations in the world. And he is willing to fight the fight.”
Unanue says his deep faith in God and ‘the Holy Spirit’ gives him the strength to combat these criminal organizations and assist organizations that are already battling to save children across the country. On July 30, Goya Foods announced that the company had recently “launched Goya Cares and has reached out to organizations whose primary focus is to rescue, rehabilitate and reunite” trafficked children into a ” loving and caring society.”
As part of Goya Cares’ Unanue pledged $2 million to combating child trafficking.
Moreover, Goya Cares coalition will partner with “Catholic Charities of San Antonio, Hope Rising USA, American Cornerstone Institute, founded by Dr. Ben Carson, Eyes on Me, The Eric Chase Foundation, Freedom Humanitarian Project, founded by Eduardo Verástegui, producer of the film Sound of Freedom, International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children, Operation Underground Railroad, founded by Tim Ballard, and Maestro Cares Foundation, founded by Marc Anthony and Henry Cardenas. Each of these organizations is dedicated to combating, rescuing, and/or rehabilitating victims of human and child trafficking.”
The United Nations estimates there are yet roughly 25 million slaves in the world. But Unaue says that’s a low estimate and it could be closer to 40 million. Among them, 70% are women and 25% are children.
“The United States is the biggest consumer because they’re the wealthiest nation,” Unaue said.
Meanwhile, U.S. authorities lack the necessary resources and manpower to combat the crisis . Founder of Operation Underground Railroad, Ballard said he started his organization because so much of the fight against sex trafficking fell outside of the jurisdiction of the government.
Unaue met Ballard in Utah last weekend and was impressed by his organization. According to the CEO, the fight against these crimes begins with organizations like Ballard’s.
Underground Railroad takes charitable donations to train Americans “how to recognize a child that might be being trafficked,” Unaue said. “A lot of times molestation starts from within the family. Across the board, it’s in our neighborhood, it’s in our own homes. And so this is not happening somewhere else. This is happening here.”

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’
At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.
Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”
Speaking on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”
“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”
“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
