That’s assuming no repeat offenders. But still, that comes to 5,769 sex trafficking cases per WEEK. I have a hard time believing Houston seats that many *jurors* per week.

Does anyone seriously believe that 1 out of every 7 Houstonians are involved in sex trafficking? This just another in a series of lies propagated by the left and printed without verification by their dupes in the New York dominated media. Remember homeless activist Mitch Snyder’s claims of 3 million homeless in the 1980s that was widely spread by the media even though the Department of HHS own stats said there were 600,000? How about the various claims of radical feminists whose totally unverified claims that over 25% of American females are sexually assaulted are never fact-checked but are blindly accepted and printed?

But of course, B.S. detectors are only turned on for supposed information that would interfere with the preferred narrative. With a claim that “300,000 illegal immigrants commit homicide by vehicle every year in Houston alone”, you can bet the editors would flag it.

That’s good enough to excuse any lie coming from a politician these days…
