Recently, the U.S. Senate was moments away from passing landmark legislation that would have provided critical care and shelter to child sex trafficking victims in America. The Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking Deterrence and Victims Support Act of 2010, bi-partisan legislation introduced by Senators Wyden (D-OR) and Cornyn (R-TX), had already passed the Senate unanimously and passed the House with minor changes. But when it came time for the Senate to approve those changes, one man stood in the way: Senator Jeffrey Sessions of Alabama.
By blocking the Victims Support Act, Senator Sessions helped make sure hundreds of thousands of child trafficking victims will remain on the streets of America, being raped and enslaved. He has helped ensure men who are looking to buy sex with children have ample opportunity to do so. And he's helped keep money in the pockets of pimps and traffickers who sell children as young as 11 for sex.
Why is Senator Sessions supporting child sex trafficking? Please, tell him to compensate for the error he made in preventing legislation that would shelter trafficked kids by supporting the passage of The Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking Deterrence and Victims Support Act of 2010 in the next Congressional session.
