Senator Cornyn introduces bill to combat sex trafficking
WASHINGTON — U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) joined colleagues in the Senate and House of Representatives today in introducing the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act.
The Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act would boost support for and protection of victims of human trafficking by increasing law enforcement resources, enhancing victims’ services and increasing penalties in an effort to combat child sex trafficking, child pornography, sexual exploitation and human trafficking.
“Twenty-five percent of the victims of domestic human trafficking crimes are located in Texas. Everyone here today recognizes the atrocity of human trafficking, and we’ve united across party lines and in bicameral fashion, as you can tell, to take a firm stand against it.”
