It depends on their qualifications and quantity. How many do you want to buy?



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

At one point earlier this year, ICE had 46 pregnant immigrant women in custody and wouldn't let them get abortions even when they had arranged for funds to pay for them. While they aren't forced to labor while in custody, they will be essentially slaves to make money to raise their children wherever they end up (that is, assuming they have a live birth).

But since the overthrow of autocratic leader Muammar Gaddafi, the vast, sparsely populated country has slid into violent chaos and migrants with little cash and usually no papers are particularly vulnerable.

One 34-year-old survivor from Senegal said he was taken to a dusty lot in the south Libyan city of Sabha after crossing the desert from Niger in a bus organised by people smugglers. The group had paid to be taken to the coast, where they planned to risk a boat trip to Europe, but their driver suddenly said middlemen had not passed on his fees and put his passengers up for sale.

β€œThe men on the pick-up were brought to a square, or parking lot, where a kind of slave trade was happening. There were locals – he described them as Arabs – buying sub-Saharan migrants,”
Thanks, Obama,

OK, and thanks, Hillary....
