President Trump Signs McCaul’s Bill to Combat Human Trafficking Into Law
Washington, D.C. – Earlier this week, House Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul’s (R-TX) bill to combat human trafficking was signed into law (P.L. 115-125) by President Trump. This bipartisan bill helps protect victims of human trafficking by providing the right tools to federal, state, and local law enforcement, as well as private sector organizations to increase awareness and to help stop this heinous threat.
Chairman McCaul: “We must do everything in our power to combat human trafficking, uphold human rights, and prevent our citizens from becoming victims of this heinous crime. The Department of Homeland Security Blue Campaign Authorization Act will better equip DHS to partner, educate, and coordinate efforts and intelligence sharing on multiple levels. It will provide resources to help deter, detect, and mitigate instances of human trafficking in our country. It will also safeguard victims and help raise public awareness of the threat human trafficking poses to our communities. I am confident this bill will help protect our citizens and children from being exploited.”
