Trump moves against sex trafficking

Attorney General Bill Schuette joined President Donald Trump for the signing of a new federal law to fight human trafficking on Wednesday.

Establishes enhanced penalties-a fine, a prison term of up to 25 years, or both-for a person who commits the offense in one of the following aggravating circumstances: (1) promotes or facilitates the prostitution of five or more persons, or (2) acts with reckless disregard that such conduct contributes to sex trafficking.

"Trafficking is probably worse today than at any time in our history", the President said during the signing ceremony.

"You are not alone", he added. "This sends a message it will slow things down temporarily.That doesn't mean we've cured the problem of sex trafficking it still exists".

Founded in 1938, the National Federation of Republican Women is the largest and most influential Republican women's group in the nation, proudly representing the party that first made it possible for women to vote in the U.S. The NFRW works to increase the effectiveness and relevance of women in the cause of good government.

"We're with you 1,000 percent", the president told her. Seven people associated with the website were recently indicted on charges of facilitating prostitution, conspiracy and money laundering. "Those women and children that have been sold with impunity by Backpage for 15 years".

The law passed Congress overwhelmingly. Anti-human trafficking advocates have long pointed to these websites as profiting from sex trafficking, including the sex trafficking of children.

Wagner first became involved in anti-trafficking advocacy efforts when she was a United States ambassador to Luxembourg.

Addressing the victims and family members in attendance, he said, "I'm signing this bill in your honor ..."

The bill signing comes amid a flurry of other unrelated news, news that reporters will nearly certainly ask Mr. Trump about on Wednesday.
