The report, released on Wednesday, included disturbing footage of migrant teens who were supposed to be placed with "sponsor" families by the Biden administration's Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), describing being forced into labor to pay off cartels.
"When I got here [to the United States], I began studying, and then working," said one underage girl. "I went to school for six months. From a year ago, I began working…I go in [to work] at 4PM and get out at 2AM."
Frander, a male teenage migrant, said he "cannot work legally" in the US, so he had to pay $150 for "a small piece of paper that you get to be able to apply for jobs" – a fraudulent "social security card."
"You just call the person, and he comes to your home and brings it," Frander said.
Another underage male migrant told the reporters that the kids have to go to work "wherever they take you," in reference to cartels and/or human traffickers.
A whistleblower from inside the federal government, Tara Lee Rodas, came forward to Project Veritas to expose what was going on after being horrified by her discovery.
"I think most people believe, and I originally thought, that sponsors were families because HHS says, 'We're reuniting children with their families.' In fact, that's not the case," Rodas said.
"This is a terrible thing, and then you look at some of these children who are teenagers, who've never been to school, can't read, can't write. It's a very wicked thing to take advantage of these children," she added.
On Friday, O'Keefe told Kirk more of the terrifying details of the taxpayer-funded child abuse, including sex trafficking.
"This is the US Department of Health and Human Services whistleblower, a current federal employee who came to us…Tara Rodas. She works for something called the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency, and she brought us documents, Charlie, from Texas," the investigative journalist said.
He then went on to describe how he says a government program knowingly placed these minors in dangerous environments with criminals.
"These are addresses of a sponsorship program. This is a program where the federal government gets sponsors to take unaccompanied children from Mexico, Guatemala… and put them in addresses, and she says that the government knew these children are being trafficked," O'Keefe continued.
According to Rodas, her co-workers knew what was going on and did nothing.
"And she brought it to the attention of one of her colleagues there at Health and Human Services in the federal government, and she was told by this government official that 'we don't get sued by the cartels so there's nothing that we can do about this,'" O'Keefe told Kirk.
"Our undercover journalists went to these addresses in Texas, interviewed the people at the addresses, and these young girls admitted to us they're being pimped out by their sponsors. So children are being trafficked, exploited, raped, and the government knows about it."
Kirk asked O'Keefe to clarify for the viewers on the horrendous accusations.
"So James, when you say 'pimped out,'... Do you mean that these children are being used as sex slave prostitutes or do you mean they're being pimped out for manual labor?"
"They're being pimped out for sex," said O'Keefe.
"In this case, some of these children are being given labor, and some of these children are being pimped out for actual sex...These young children were admitting to being sold off for sex when they got to the United States. And they lived with these sponsors who were supposed to be housing them, but some of these children were living in little studio and one bedroom apartments with multiple older men," O'Keefe explained, adding that one particular girl who told Project Veritas reporters that she was being sex trafficked was only 15 years old.
According to the whistleblower, the sponsors themselves are not even legal citizens.
"...and the sponsors are typically not actual American citizens. They're not permanent residents. Tara told us they don't have a legal presence… Tara showed us her government laptop… showed us addresses, and we went down there," O'Keefe said.
According to the Project Veritas founder, the organization is in touch with the authorities.
