Amend the Safe Harbor Act to include 17 & 18 year olds

The Safe Harbor Act protects victims of human trafficking that are 16 years old and younger treating them as victims rather than criminals, providing them with shelter and aid. However, this leaves out 17 and 18 year olds being treated as criminals. We intend to raise the age limit to 18 and under to include those that are still dependent according to the law to be provided the shelter and aid they need to get back on their feet.
