“Human traffickers are like cockroaches. They operate in the dark. The American public has no real knowledge of the atrocities going on around the world. The human trafficking bill will be like turning the light on the cockroaches. They'll scatter and we'll be able to catch them,” said Congressman John Carter, Chairman of the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee.
I respectfully submit herein and indeed directly Quoting/Unquote: The “Human Trafficking Reporting Act” H.R. 906 Sec. 2(9) “The addition of severe forms of trafficking in persons to the definition of part 1 violent crimes will ensure that statistics on this heinous crime will be compiled and available through the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Uniform Crime Repost.”
Trafficking 101: Sex trafficking is when a commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, coercion or when the person induced to perform the act is under 18 years old. A commercial sex act means any item of value is traded for any sexual services (prostitution, pornography, or sexual performance).
“We must work together, at every level of government, to equip law enforcement with the tools they need to crack down on human traffickers. Our bill will aid Texas and other state and local governments as they battle organized criminal syndicates and violent gangs that traffic humans for labor and sex,” said Sen. Cornyn.
