Pedophiles Traveling To Tijuana To Have Sex With Minors

GUEST:

Kristina Davis, reporter, The San Diego Union-Tribune

Transcript

Several California men are now facing prosecution in a new effort to crackdown on sex tourism in Tijuana and other locations overseas. Investigators are making use of a recent law against traveling with the intent of having sex with a minor.

San Diego FBI investigators said their evidence includes a series of text messages between the men and a Tijuana sex broker that refer to girls and boys for sale — using terms like "brand new" and "recently stolen."

Kristina Davis, a reporter for The San Diego Union-Tribune, is following the cases and joins Midday Edition on Tuesday to discuss the issue.
