Armed Q-Anon Fanatics Luring Migrant Children With Hot Dogs And Hamburgers At The Border: Report

QAnon

Armed QAnon supporters have been intercepting migrant children at the border with Mexico, enticing them with things like hot dogs and hamburgers and then compiling information on their relatives in the U.S., The New York Times reports.

The bizarre campaign, which has seen QAnon fanatics and far-right activists flock to the border, is led by a man named Jason Frank, according to The Times.

Frank, who is said to keep an AR-15 and a slew of other weapons inside his vehicle, has been camping out with other members of his group along the border in Arizona in what he describes as a bid to “protect” children from sex-trafficking rings.

“They are being trafficked, sex trafficked. That’s the No. 1 trade,” Frank was quoted as saying by the Times.

While Frank has insisted his group always alerts Border Patrol to the children’s arrival, immigration activists have sounded the alarm over the QAnon supporters collecting information on the kids’ relatives in the U.S., something they say can lead to harassment of immigrant families.

“We believe the conduct of this group is illegal and extremely dangerous,” public defender Margo Cowan told the Times.

QAnon is based on a conspiracy theory that children are falling prey to a cabal of liberal sex traffickers.
