Additional details have emerged surrounding another successful annual Operation Cross Country sex trafficking sweep conducted by the FBI. A 3-month-old girl and her 5-year-old sister were among victims rescued in the nationwide sting. The Goldwater covered the operation which took place last week for the eleventh year in a row.
FBI officials said in a statement the two young girls were put up for sale in Denver for $600 by a friend of the family. The children have been placed in protective custody and a suspect has been arrested. Much of the FBI's work is shrouded in secrecy, but Operation Cross Country is one of the few operations that get's some much deserved public recognition to the bureau for their hard work.
The agency should be praised for the life-saving work they conduct for our great country. Certainly the two young sisters saved by the sex trafficking sting have saved from a terrible fate. One of the few details released about the operation revealed the average age of the rescued victims was 15.

FBI Director Christopher Wray said in a statement, "We at the FBI have no greater mission than to protect our nation's children from harm. Unfortunately, the number of traffickers arrested - and the number of children recovered - reinforces why we need to continue to do this important work."
