The Department of Justice (DOJ) has shut down an Asian-run prostitution ring geared toward U.S. elites that was enabled by the Department of Homeland Security.
The focused elites embrace elected officers, army officers, and authorities contractors.
The justice division’s press announcement on Wednesday hides the fact by describing the foreign-born alleged pimps as Americans, saying:
The following defendants have been charged with conspiracy to coerce and entice to journey to interact in unlawful sexual exercise:
Han Lee, a/ok/a “Hana,” 41, of Cambridge, Mass.;
James Lee, 68, of Torrance, Calif.; and
Junmyung Lee, 30, of Dedham, Mass.
But the courtroom affidavit filed by the Department of Justice admitted that the alleged pimps walked by way of the border safeguards which were relaxed by President Joe Biden’s border chief, Alejandro Mayorkas:
26. Han LEE, 41, resides at 80 Cambridgepark Drive, Unit 638, Cambridge, MA (Target Location 1). HAN was born in Korea and first got here to the United States in October 2014. She acquired a customer’s visa however subsequently overstayed the size of the visa.
28. Junmyung LEE, 30, resides at 71 Legacy Boulevard, Dedham, MA (Target Location 2). JUNMYUNG was born in Korea and commenced his F1 pupil visa course of in January 2018 to attend the Computer Systems Institute in Boston, MA.
Y… Okay… was noticed strolling with HAN into 90 Fawcett Street, Cambridge, MA on June 6, 2023, after having flown into Boston’s Logan Airport from South Korea. Y… Okay… remained within the United States till June 21, 2023, at which level he flew again to South Korea … Y… Okay… has not returned to the United States since.
The affidavit additionally says the Asian girls used the Los Angeles airport — however doesn’t state in the event that they flew into the United States.
Mayorkas has pressured border officers to allow the rising influx of staff who use B-1/B-2 visas for vacationers and short-term enterprise guests to succeed in black-market jobs within the United States.
Mayorkas’s division has additionally helped disguise the airport arrivals by minimizing the enforcement of legal guidelines towards unlawful immigration. For instance, he has decreased enforcement of the legal guidelines towards foreigners who overstay their short-term visas — similar to F-1 pupil visas — and has stated he won’t pursue unlawful migrants who haven’t been convicted of felonies.
Mayorkas’s hands-off coverage has inspired large ranges of intercourse trafficking as hundreds of thousands of poor unlawful migrants flood into American communities.
“It’s a lot of, frankly, ‘Hear no evil, see no evil, there must not be any,’ really deliberately kind of looking the other way at what is happening,” stated Jessica Vaughan, the coverage director on the Center for Immigration Studies.
In July, Vaughan advised the House Homeland Security Committee:
There are various situations the place, for instance, women have been positioned with older males in what’s clearly an exploitative scenario. There are youngsters who’ve been turned over to labor traffickers. There are youngsters who get turned over to gang members … It’s actually fairly horrific.

But the justice division’s affidavit suggests the federal authorities is anxious about hurt to itself by way of potential sexual blackmail of elites:
These clients spanned a big selection of various skilled disciplines. Some of those skilled disciplines included, however will not be restricted to, politicians, pharmaceutical executives, docs, army officers, authorities contractors that possess safety clearances, professors, attorneys, enterprise executives, know-how firm executives, scientists, accountants, retail workers, and college students.
This record solely encompasses a small pattern of recognized clients which were recognized by way of investigative strategies. I imagine there are doubtlessly a whole lot of but to be recognized clients which will embrace different skilled disciplines not included within the record above.
The justice division could also be involved about spying, Mitchell Epner, a former federal prosecutor in New Jersey, told Rolling Stone journal:
“There’s something going on here that’s more than sex … It’s very clear from the locations — Fairfax [and] Tysons Corner in Virginia are very close not only to [Washington] D.C. but to the Pentagon.” Epner says he “would not at all be surprised” if the alleged brother operators have been “servicing people who were very prominent in either business or government and then turning around and extorting them.”
“There are potentially hundreds of individuals who took these services as commercial sex buyers,” said Joshua Levy, the appearing U.S. lawyer for the District of Massachusetts.
In the United States, many federal businesses and state governments — similar to Washington state — ignore the unfold of prostitution, regardless of the horrific influence it has on girls, their well being, and their potential to have households and middle-class lives.
