None of the predictions made by QAnon followers concerning former President Donald Trump coming to Washington, DC, and being “reinstated” as president has come true.
However, it appears that they are increasing their efforts in another area to further their political agenda and raise funds for their cause.
The New York Times published an in-depth investigation on how QAnon members are collecting migrant children at the border and seeking to seduce and indoctrinate them into their worldview. The group’s assertion that its objective is to save children from a strong cabal of child sex traffickers has been updated.
According to the New York Times, QAnon member Jason Frank is rounding up migrants who enter the United States through cracks in the border wall in Arizona and feeding them hamburgers and hot dogs, all while giving them “Let’s Go Brandon” T-shirts and leading them in a prayer circle. He is also said to broadcast the actions on Facebook Live, claiming that he wants to keep the kids safe.
“Frank, a QAnon influencer whose Facebook page in recent months has shown him pictured with such conservative celebrities as Donald J. Trump Jr., Michael Flynn, and Sidney Powell,” the newspaper reports, “has fashioned his team into a new style of border enforcers, motivated not so much by halting immigration as by guarding the country against other perceived threats — in this case, an unfounded conspiracy theory that migrant children are being funneled into pedophilia rings.”
“They are being trafficked, sex trafficked. That’s the No. 1 trade,” according to Frank.
However, according to Stacey Sutherland of the Arizona Anti-Trafficking Network, this is not the case. “We haven’t heard about migrant children brought in to be sex workers or slaves,” she said. “At the border, it’s overwhelmingly people who paid to be smuggled.”
Chris Nanos, the sheriff of Pima County, Arizona, described the “QAnon types” near the border as “nut jobs,” but stated they were not under his jurisdiction.
“If they are interfering with migrants crossing, Border Patrol should deal with it,” he said.
The US Border Patrol arrives shortly after migrant children cross the border and are detained by QAnon, and takes them into custody for processing.
Mia Bloom the co-author of “Pastels and Pedophiles: Inside the Mind of QAnon,” made this blunt estimation: “The kids are a prop for them to use to spread their message.”
