Tim Ballard is the founder and CEO of Operation Underground Railroad, an organization dedicated to rescuing victims of human trafficking, child slavery, and bringing justice to their perpetrators. Ballard joins Federalist Radio to discuss the horrific details of this industry and how his team partners with law enforcement on operations around the world.
“There are two million children forced into the commercial sex trade. There is five and half million children if you include slave labor,” Ballard said.
OUR Rescue is unique in their ability to work on the ground, empowering and providing resources for developing countries. “Our main mission is empowering law enforcement, but we can do it through very aggressive means if they want us to,” he said.
