Human trafficking is a form of modern day slavery that needs to be eradicated. The United States must do everything in its power to end human trafficking once and for all. Large events are often hot beds of activity for human traffickers, so we must raise awareness of the problem and become more adept at stopping this evil practice. Experts estimate that 10,000 children come across our southern border each year to be sold into slavery, which is why securing our borders is a key step in combatting human trafficking. I am proud to say that in 2018, I championed H.R. 1865 through Congress. After this bill became law, online ads for sex trafficking dropped by 87 percent. We still have work to do, so I will continue to fight this scourge in Congress and will consider any piece of legislation that aims to end this atrocity.
