senate Bill S. 1733

Sex Trafficking: Increasing Protections for Minors, Options for Adults, and Monitoring of Traffickers

Argument in favor

Bipartisan support in both House and Senate. Greater protections for all victims of trafficking, especially minors. Tracks traffickers more closely. Does not increase federal spending. Treats children who are trafficked for sex as what they are--victims.

Argument opposed

A likelihood of increasing lifelong criminals, as an 18-year old involved in the trafficking of another adult would be put on the National Sex Offender Registry for life, thereby severely limiting that person's opportunities.
