Former Homeland Security agent Tim Ballard, the subject of “Sound of Freedom” and real-life hero who rescues trafficked children, spoke with Breitbart News at a recent conservative conference — where he discussed the mainstream media’s shocking response to the film and his concerns about unaccompanied children “disappearing” after entering the United States through the southern border.
In the exclusive interview at the Turning Point Action Conference in West Palm Beach, Florida, Ballard pointed out that mainstream media outlets — such as Rolling Stone, MSNBC, CBS, and CNN — had previously celebrated his operation to rescue children back in 2014, which was the subject of “Sound of Freedom.”
“They applauded it. They said that we were good guys. They said, ‘Congratulations, you rescued children.’ Eight years later, those same outlets are pretending that didn’t happen. … They’re lying about it. They’re changing their story. They want to pretend it’s not happening,” Ballard explained, arguing that the motive behind the media’s decision to trash the movie is that they do not want a conversation to occur about what is happening to children and the “consequences to children that their agendas and their policies are having.”

The reporter asked Ballard whether he believed that the anti-children agenda is connected to the disturbing explicit content being pushed in schools — to which he replied that it “absolutely” is, noting that it is a slippery slope.
Citing the left’s push for children to undergo gender transition, Ballard argued that allowing children to consent to completely “altering” their bodies to appear as the opposite gender could potentially open the door to normalizing pedophilia.
“They know that this is going to shine a light on all of their agenda that they’ve been working on… So they’d rather just pretend none of its happening,” he asserted, pointing to a United Nations-backed report issued several months ago “saying, ‘it’s time to consider decriminalizing’” adult relations “with children.”
“Thank God that many in the LGBT community are fighting back and saying, ‘No, no, no…you’re not part of this community,’” Ballard added, referring to groups like Gays Against Groomers.
“But this is this is the wider battle that we’re fighting,” he continued.
Ballard was also asked about ways to fight the rise in child trafficking, which prompted a discussion about the border crisis and the number of illegal alien children who are “disappearing” after the Biden administration allows them to enter the U.S.
A whistleblower from Joe Biden’s Health and Human Services says the federal government is essentially facilitating a “multi billion dollar child trafficking operation” at the border with Biden’s Unaccompanied Alien Children program, that delivers migrant children to “sponsors”…

According to the former Homeland Security agent, it is crucial to “enforce the border” because it is the “only compassionate policy” to prevent trafficking.
“Tens of thousands of children — unaccompanied, young children — are disappearing into the belly of the beast, and they have to know that’s happening, but they care about their agenda more than that,” Ballard said, explaining that “no background checks were done by the sponsors who came to get them.”
“It’s literally more difficult to adopt a cat out of the shelter than it is for a sponsor to show up and check one of these kids out and take them into the belly of the United States,” he added.
“Speak the whole truth about what this is leading to. If you’re making pedophiles happy and making them salivate over your policies, I think it’s time to push pause and reconsider your policies,” Ballard argued.
