“It’s a problem Facebook has known about for many years.”Facebook spokesman Andy Stone said that the company prohibits "content that offers to provide or facilitate human smuggling. He added that Facebook permits content related to seeking asylum and that it had consulted with the United Nations on its content policies around human smuggling. The policies draw on the U.N. definition of human smuggling as “the procurement or facilitation of illegal entry into a state across international borders” that doesn’t necessarily involve coercion or force. Since 2015, researchers and journalists have regularly identified pages dedicated to human smuggling on Facebook.

Biden wants further regulate "ghost guns" made from parts bought online without traceable serial numbers. Grillo spoke to The World's host Marco Werman about the situation with ghost guns in the US. I was also in Los Angeles, I mean, right now the sheer numbers of ghost guns are not that high in a percentage. But I think one other reason that the need to act against ghost guns, as well as other firearms trafficking, is if you stop other firearms trafficking, they'll just switch to ghost guns. How have authorities there handled their own response to ghost guns and have those actions been at all effective?

About 70% of guns used in crimes in Mexico that are seized and traced originated in the US. Weapons sent illegally from the US to Mexico and used by criminal groups are overwhelming Mexican security forces. Mexico's prohibitive laws against firearms have not stopped thousands of weapons from being used in its streets, directly threatening its own security forces. "Ciudad Juarez has become the number-one for illegal guns trafficking into Mexico," Grillo said. "This trafficker thought gun shows in Texas were illegal because of how easy it was to get a hold of powerful firearms," Grillo said.
