Earlier this fall, CNN published an investigative report revealing migrants and refugees being sold as farm laborers for as little as $400 in a nighttime auction. Jakes, pastor of a Dallas megachurch, said in an impassioned Instagram post, "for the price of $400 a person loses their dignity, their pride, and sometimes their life."
