Sex trafficking and child exploitation are modern-day forms of slavery that affect millions of innocent victims around the world each year. Children as young as 5-years-old are bought, sold, or forcibly taken out of their countries and used for their bodies in the underground sex trade market.

Human trafficking is the fastest-growing criminal industry worldwide. We must intervene if we want to see a stop to this abhorrent industry's growth. The Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking Deterrence and Victims Support Act of 2010 (S. 2925) would focus a large effort toward providing comprehensive care to victims of sex trafficking. It would also set aside funding for anti-trafficking agencies and endeavors.

Noting and signed. The amazing thing about this is that most Americans have no idea that our country is one of the biggest dealing in trafficking. In my town of Clearwater Florida just a few weeks ago, 27 slaves forced to work in a food buffet were saved. It did make the news for a day, then just blew over, as no one would ever believe it's happening right under our own noses. This is a daily occurance in the US. IT MUST BE STOPPED and those who do it need to be put in jail for a very long time.

Noted and signed. It's sad to think that this is happening anywhere in the world. We must do what we can to help see to it that those who are behind it are sent away for a very long time.

Once again it never fails to amaze me how cruel and inhumane humans can be.

We reflect the type of society and human being we are when we either protect or fail to protect the most vulnerable among us, our children. I certainly signed and thank you for bringing this to our attention.
