karla Jacinto RomeroA sex trafficking survivor is firing back at Sen. Katie Britt’s (R-Ala.) distorted retelling of her story in a prime-time response to President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address last week, saying she believes her harrowing experience was used by Britt purely for political purposes.

“In fact, I hardly ever cooperate with politicians because it seems to me that they only want an image. They only want a photo, and that to me is not fair,” Karla Jacinto Romero told CNN on Sunday when asked about the Republican Alabama senator’s motive.

Romero, in a translated interview from her native Spanish, said she would like to see politicians be more empathetic with “the issue of human trafficking because there are millions of girls and boys who disappear all the time.”

“People who are really trafficked and abused, as she [Britt] mentioned. And I think she should first take into account what really happens before telling a story of that magnitude,” said Romero.
