Fighting Human Trafficking in Texas
January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, a sobering reminder that even as we enter the year 2014, people around the world continue to be victims of slavery and human trafficking.
Tragically, these horrendous crimes are occurring at an alarming rate in our own state. 25% of human trafficking victims are located in Texas.
I have introduced several pieces of legislation he is working to pass in the Senate to help law enforcement track down and prosecute these criminals, and provide support for the victims of these crimes.
The Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act
Representative Ted Poe (R-TX) has introduced the bill in the U.S. House of Representatives.
The Stop Exploitation Through Trafficking Act (SETT)
