Former NFL Quarterback Demands Congress Act On Child Trafficking Crisis

Former NFL superstar Tim Tebow took a stand Wednesday before the United States Congress to address the human trafficking issue at our southern border. 

Tim Tebow, a former Denver Broncos quarterback with a net worth of over $71 million, has not kept quiet his opinions about the invasion at the southern border. This week on Capitol Hill, the former athlete addressed Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) about the horrific issue during the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Federal Government Surveillance. 

Tebow took the stand, beginning with tears in his eyes as the athlete read aloud a letter about horrible exploitation written to him through the Tim Tebow Foundation, a Christian organization created to offer help and protection to abused children. 

Rescue me. Help me. Monsters are chasing. Can’t you see? Monsters are whispering. Can’t you hear? Monsters are shouting you are nothing. Can’t you feel my pain?” Tebow read. 

Tebow’s organization is credited with finding and identifying over 300 missing children with the help of Homeland Security. He urged lawmakers to assemble legislation to authorize a rescue squad for horrifically-exploited children, emphasizing the importance of how many children go missing every single day since the border invasion began in 2021. 

Tebow was adamant about the time sensitivity of the issue, calling for lawmakers “to enhance the capability to identify and locate the more than 50,000 unidentified children who are” suffering cruel and disturbing torment at the hands of evil people. Rep. Gaetz responded with a significant amount of “intrigue” at Tebow’s initiative to create a rescue team, agreeing with Tebow’s emphasis on making sure this task force is equipped with the finances, resources, technology and intelligence to bring the 50,000 children back to their families. 

“But if all we do today is speak, all I do is speak, I also missed the mark. We have to do more than just talk about it. We have to act on it and be about it,” Tebow emphasized. 

Gaetz also took his time on the floor to agree with Tebow’s frustration at the Federal Bureau of Investigation for draining Homeland Security resources, rendering them unable to solve these missing person cases.
