Human Trafficking and Slavery in DC Beltway


Under the radar alert:

The Washington Examiner’s Freeman Klopott is reporting that dozens of wealthy Beltway families have employed illegal immigrants as domestic employees in what Federal prosecutors have said amounts to slave labor.

Sentencing was scheduled to be held for naturalized citizen and Indonesian native Soripada Lubis for harboring up to 24 Indonesian women, and profiting from their labor.  Lubis’ wife, Siti Chadidjah Siregar, an Indonesian citizen, has also entered a guilty plea to making false statements, and faces up to 5 years in prison.

This is interesting:

Klopott says, “The list of Lubis’ 50 clients divulged in court filings by federal prosecutors includes a high-profile Washington attorney, ….   No charges have been filed against the people who employed the women, and The Examiner has chosen not to release their names.

Begging the question, of course, “Why not release the names?”

Since this case involves under the table, cash payments to illegal immigrants, then it is safe to assume that taxes have not been paid.

There’s a lot of that going around lately.

  1. I read a report several years ago that reported that slavery was alive and well and as prevalent as ever, though hidden from plain view in brothels and households.

  2. Why not release the names?

    Hmm…couldn’t have ANYTHING to do with powerful people being on that list, could it? No wonder I’m do damned cynical.

  3. The Examiner has chosen not to release their names.“

    Or the Examiner has been pressured to not name names?
    Hmm…
