President Trump today signed three major bills which should help to end Human Trafficking and defend the children and victims affected by the terrifying human trafficking and sex slave trade.
Official Statement from President Donald J. Trump on the Passage of H.R. 2664, H.R. 2480, and H.R. 2200:
“My Administration is focused on ending the horrific practice of human trafficking, and the three bills the House of Representatives passed today are important steps forward.”
“Since taking office, I have met with courageous survivors, non-profit groups, and faith leaders who are devoting tremendous energy to raising awareness about human trafficking.”
“I am hopeful that the Senate will take up and pass these three bills as soon as possible and I look forward to my continued work with the Congress on this important issue”
H.R. 2664 is the Enhancing Detection of Human Trafficking Act, to direct the Secretary of Labor to train certain Department of Labor personnel how to effectively detect and assist law enforcement in preventing human trafficking during the course of their primary roles and responsibilities, and for other purposes.
H.R.2480 is the Empowering Law Enforcement to Fight Sex Trafficking Demand Act which will assist law enforcement in combating these heinous crimes against humanity.

America can thank President Trump and his Administration for saving the lives of those affected and protecting the innocent. God Bless President Donald J. Trump.
