Legislators Vow to Protect Children Being Targeted by Sex Traffickers

On July 29th, the FBI arrested 150 people across the United States and charged them of holding children against their will for prostitution.

Officials called the three-day sweep the largest-ever operation against child sex-trafficking.

“Much of the discussion around comprehensive immigration is focused on the male immigrants and not focused on women and children,” said Representative Royal-Allard on leaving children out of the immigration debate.  

“In my personal opinion, there are those trying to demonize immigrants and talking about children and family, that puts a human face on the issue.”
