President Trump: War on Human Trafficking

According to the FBI, human trafficking is believed to be the third-largest criminal activity in the world. In recent years cases have been piling up and leads are hard to follow in many instances.   President Trump has vowed to bring “full force and weight” to battle this epidemic aggressively . In a Reuters video the president pointed out the seriousness of this issues in America and worldwide. A short synopsis of the statements maid by President trump indicate that globally nearly 21 million people are victims of human trafficking, according to the U.N.’s International Labor Organization. An estimated 4.5 million of them are forced into sex work. More cases of human trafficking were reported in California than in any other U.S. state last year, according to data from the National Human Trafficking Resource Center’s hotline. Some 5,500 cases of sex trafficking were reported to the center’s hotline nationwide last year, according to its website. Full Article

  1. American Detained in America

    One of the biggest problems with this “war on human trafficking” is that it has largely targeted registered citizens all the while we make up a very minute fraction of this issue. Until that is acknowledged and they stop targeting us, prostitution, especially forced prostitution, is not going away.

      There is a difference in actually doing away with something, because that would be hard; and doing something that looks like doing something, because that is easy. The registry is ready made for all sorts to use to look like they are doing something without much expense.

    • LM

      This is nothing but a smokescreen to make him look good in front of the women voters and to distract from his historically low approval rating.

      Trump was also going to “defeat” ISIS in 30 days after taking office.

      Trump might as well be having a war on dirt.

  2. David Kennerly, Still Radioactive After All These Years!

    Again, from REASON Magazine:

    “American Sex Police: With sweeping trafficking stings, the FBI returns to its roots as the nation’s vice squad” by Elizabeth Nolan Brown.

    This article, from the digital edition of their print magazine, does require a subscription. As mentioned previously, it can be had for $15/year for the digital-only version.

    Their website is, however, apart from individual articles from the print edition, available free of charge.

    Want to actually stop human trafficking?

    Then prevent people from being trafficked in the first place by stopping them from successfully being targeted and grabbed via a single global effort in every country simultaneously until trafficking is reduced to zero.

  4. Harry

    Well they (LE and likes) need to stop chasing law abiding RCs and start looking at the drug trafficking individuals, that Obama released, were it goes hand-in-hand with sex trafficking. Average person on the registry is not the career criminal profiteers that the human traffickers are. Many of these crooks are working in the back rooms of the police stations.

  5. pat

    According to a Newsday article dated January 20, 2017 approximately 20 to 30 million people worldwide are victims of sexual exploitation and human trafficking, defined by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as modern-day slavery involving force, fraud, or coercion to obtain labor… Hmmm, ask yourselves… ISN’T THAT EXACTLY WHAT THE STATES ARE DOING TO REGISTRANTS!???
