house Bill H.R. 507

Should the Federal Gov’t Study Human Trafficking?

Argument in favor

Human trafficking is a serious crime and human rights violation that continues to occur in the U.S. despite efforts to combat it at all levels of law enforcement. A better understanding of how and why this occurs, as well as how best to identify and help victims, is badly needed.

most definitely. it’s a huge problem right now, and we need all of the resources we can get to help find more of these people. the solution to every problem is educate yourself, and if we do that, we can find out better ways to break up these rings.

This is the modern-day version of slavery and the federal government must take an active role in ending this tragedy.

Argument opposed

Law enforcement agencies already understand the basic dynamics of human trafficking and would be better able to combat it if they simply had more financial resources to conduct investigations and stings.

The wall is not going to stop human trafficking. It’s coming from countries all over the world. We need to figure out how to stop this horrific crime on every front. It’s happening within our own borders.

    We don’t need to “study” it. We know all about it and how wrong it really is.

    Another waste of taxpayers money. We have law enforcement already and it’s already against the law.

    👍🏻 House Bill H.R. 570 AKA - Put Trafficking Victims First Act of 2019 👍🏻 I’m in full agreement with and recommend the passage of the House Bill H.R. 570 AKA - Put Trafficking Victims First Act of 2019 which would direct the Attorney General to study a range of issues related to human trafficking. It’d also express the sense of Congress that human trafficking is a serious problem deserving of both federal funds to address the problem and states’ attention to the issue. Human trafficking is a serious crime and human rights violation that continues to occur in the U.S. despite efforts to combat it at all levels of law enforcement. A better understanding of how and why this occurs, as well as how best to identify and help victims, is badly needed. SneakyPete..... 🤷🏼‍♂️👍🏻???👍🏻🤷‍♀️. 2*7*19.....

    Any studies of human trafficking, should include the migrant children that were taken from their parents and are being funneled through an adoption agency with ties to Betsy DeVos. The Trump Administration is responsible for kidnapping those children and they are moving those stolen children to people that are not their parents. That is human trafficking and it is the Trump Administration that is guilty of it.

    Human trafficking is the same thing as slavery. Why would we not support the investigation into a crime that goes against not only the Constitution but against fundamental human rights?

    We all know it’s bad! We all understand the impact to kids and families. What actually needs to be studied? The money should be allocated to law enforcement for enforcement and social programs to work with those most a risk.

    Since Trump & the Republicans ARE IN THE HUMAN TRAFFICKING BUSINESS NOT SURE HOW THEY CAN STUDY THEMSELVES. They have ripped Thousands of children from the arms of their families & won’t even try to put them back together. They have put the kids in concentration camps &/or in homes that have not been vetted. They DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE MOST OF THR CHILDREN IR THE PARENTS ARE. THIS IS MORE HORRENDOUS THAN ANY OTHER TRAFFICKING. SHAME, SHAME, SHAME.

    Yes! Human Trafficking is a billion dollar industry that occurs around the world. Trading humans is just not occurring in Mexico, it is manifesting in your community, local schools, and state. It Has transpired to a national and international level. Many victims are being traded and taken in Europe and Asia from the U.S. It is a serious issue.
