The Center for Combating Human Trafficking Takes on Capitol Hill



Earlier this week, CPAC Foundation’s Center for Combating Human Trafficking testified at “Children are Not for Sale: Examining the Threat of Exploitation of Children in the U.S. and Abroad.” We testified alongside victims and advocates with the goal of informing and encouraging Congress to immediately act against the scourge of modern-day slavery.


Alongside the other advocates on the witness stand, we informed the Committee of the hard truths of human trafficking such as “annually, 72% of trafficking victims are immigrants, 49% of which are undocumented.” This sad truth reminds us, and hopefully reminds Congress, that human trafficking is deeply integrated with criminal cartels that are exploiting our country’s open borders. We must take thoughtful action to protect victims, hold these evil-doers accountable, and ensure law enforcement can keep communities safe.


Our testimony was received with thoughtful and productive questions from the committee, and we know this is just the beginning of the impact we can have on Capitol Hill and beyond to help end all forms of human trafficking.
