Laura Silsby founded the New Life Children's Refuge and led the expedition in Haiti. Though she was freed after serving her sentence in Haiti, she also faced legal problems in Idaho  . In early March 2010, her attorney in these cases filed a motion to withdraw as her counsel. Another lawyer who represented Silsby in a child custody case also withdrew as her attorney.
Silsby faced civil lawsuits for fraud, wrongful termination and unpaid wages mostly related to Personal Shopper, an Internet company that she founded in 1999 with James Hammons. Silsby and Hammons worked together at Hewlett-Packard .
Currently, Silsby goes by her married name, Laura Gayler, and works at AlertSense as their VP of Marketing.(archive.is) AlertSense provides a platform for issuing emergency alerts on a large scale. This includes Amber alerts for abducted children. For example in Arizona, Prescott eNews reported, "By broadcasting frequent public alerts, descriptions and other vital information in the crucial first hours after a child abduction, the Arizona AMBER Alert can enlist large numbers of citizens in an effort to recover the child as soon as possible. AMBER Alert notifications are supported by the AlertSense AMBER Alert Web Based System and the Emergency Alert System (EAS)"(archive.is)
The online blog, Zerohedge.com, did a great objective writeup explaining this scandal. It is highly recommended.
Here is the abstract from Zerohedge.com, The Clinton-Silsby Trafficking Scandal And How The Media Attempted To Ignore/Cover It Up, by William Craddick, published on January 25th, 2017:[Archived Version]
Abstract: Contrary to reports in the media, the crowd sourced investigation labeled by some as "Pizzagate" did not begin with internet sleuths digging through the Wikileaks Podesta Files releases looking for pizza parlors and encoded language discussing human trafficking. It began with the shocking discovery that Hillary and [[Bill Clinton]] provided assistance to convicted child trafficker, Laura Silsby, resulting in a reduced sentence for child trafficking. Silsby was arrested at the Haitian border attempting to smuggle 33 children out of Haiti without documentation. Her sentence and charges were reduced after an intervention by [[Bill Clinton]]. In the aftermath of Silsby's arrest, her originally retained lawyer [[Jorge Puello]] was arrested in connection with an international smuggling ring accused of trafficking women and minors from Central America and Haiti. The revelation of this news in November was either ignored by the Western media or attacked by Clinton controlled publications.
Attempt to abduct 33 children from Haiti
Laura Silsby was caught and faced charges in 2010 for trying to abduct 33 children from Haiti, most of whom were not even orphans and had families. Ms. Silsby had claimed she originaly planned to build an orphanage in the Dominican Republic, but authorities in the country said she never submitted an application for this purpose. Silsby's organization instead located to Haiti after the earthquake in February 2010.
Silsby's connections to the Clintons, which go back as far as 2001, may have influenced the outcome of her case. Three days after the arrival of Bill Clinton to Haiti following the earthquake, all charges of kidnapping were dropped against Ms. Silsby.
Connection to Hillary Clinton
Clintons negotiate to significantly lower charges for Laura Silsby
Huma Abedin was constantly forwarding Hillary articles on Silsby's organization and its status leading up to the event: https://wikileaks.org/clinton-emails/emailid/2772
Then Bill Clinton arrived in Haiti three weeks after the earthquake in February 2010 and just days after Laura Silsby and the New Life Children’s Refuge missionaries were arrested. Within one month he managed to convince the Haitian government that there had been no wrong-doing and the charges were dropped from kidnapping to "irregular air travel". All the missionaries were immediately freed aside from Laura Silsby, who then served 4 months in Haitian jail.
Further connections between Laura, the Clintons, and trafficking
An email in Wikileaks was uncovered from the State Department describing the costs to transport children which included religious rhetoric:
UNCLASSIFIED U.S. Department of State Case No. F-2014-20439 Doc No. C05766639 Date: 08/31/2015 • For God to guide us to the children He wants us to bring to NLCR and for their physical, emotional and spiritual healing
Cheryl Mills, close attorney to the Clintons, was intimately involved in the press releases surrounding the United States portrayal of Silsby's arrest. Silsby and the New Life Children's Refuge come up many times in the Clinton emails in fact.
