Ten Americans Arrested  for Trafficking Haitian Children

Ten American Baptist missionaries were caught while attempting to cross the border into the Dominican Republic with 33 Haitian children on January 29th. None of the children had identification or documented proof that they were orphans. Authorities claim that when seized from their kidnappers, most of the children claimed to have living family members and were not truly orphans. The Americans, who are now in custody on charges of kidnapping, claimed that their purpose was to take the “orphaned” children to safety in the Dominican Republic, however they had no legal documentation to do so.
