According to a shocking new report, underage migrant girls are being pimped out to people-smugglers in northern Italy for a chance to be taken across the border into France.
Underage migrant girls are allegedly being pimped in the Italian city of Ventimiglia for passage across the border into France, according to the children’s rights NGO Save The Children, Italian newspaper Il Giornale reports.
The underage girls, many from sub-Saharan or East Africa, are forced into prostitution to pay the people-smugglers’ fees, which can run from between 50 to 150 euros, while others are made to sell their bodies for food or for a roof over their heads.
Raffaela Milano, a director at the NGO, said that young girls were particularly at risk and vulnerable, saying the girls, “are strongly exposed to very serious risks of abuse and exploitation, in many cases finding themselves living in conditions of great degradation and promiscuity.” . . .
. . . The vast majority of young migrant girls forced into prostitution . . .
Praying for these children.
Why should I be surprised? It sadly occurrs on THIS “side of the pond” too.
This incentivizing of illegal immigration has been a disaster.
