About Defending Our Children

This show segues from Contraland, the documentary created by Veterans For Child Rescue founder, Craig “Sawman” Sawyer. Its sole purpose is to alert the populace of the human trafficking of children which is the single greatest threat to our way of life. It is an estimated $38-$50 billion industry, which is greater than the NBA, NFL, and MLB combined. Society believes that this industry is real however that it exists outside our borders. When in fact this problem is prevalent in every corner of the United States.

We need to challenge our educational system, our justice system, our local, state, and federal government. In recent times we have been taught to view that our greatest threat to society was terrorism, however Child Trafficking has a much more devastating impact because our children will be the future leaders of our way of life. We as a society have to do everything we can to protect our species starting with our children. This evil impacts every single person in the United States as well as worldwide.

He made plans to film a documentary that would expose the infrastructure and secrecy behind the industrial scale harm of child trafficking.
