Chicago mom of murdered teen wins fight against online sex trafficking

Trump signs online trafficking bill

Attorney General Bill Schuette joined President Donald Trump for the signing of a new federal law to fight human trafficking on Wednesday.

The new law paves the way for victims of sex trafficking to hold websites accountable for knowingly facilitating sex trafficking.

President Donald Trump signed into law today legislation that criminalizes the use of the internet to advertise prostitution and child sex trafficking. "You are not alone".

Founded in 1938, the National Federation of Republican Women is the largest and most influential Republican women's group in the nation, proudly representing the party that first made it possible for women to vote in the U.S. The NFRW works to increase the effectiveness and relevance of women in the cause of good government.

The PROTECT Act would amend existing human trafficking law to specify that the use of drugs or illegal substances to cause a person to engage in a commercial sex act or forced labor constitutes a form of coercion.

"We've already interrupted 87% of the global ad volume". The 93-count indictment alleges the website facilitated prostitution and laundered tens of millions of dollars in profits and teenage girls were sold for sex on the site. She was the first to sue Backpage.com, a classified ads website that has always been criticized as failing to crack down on sex trafficking on its platform.

Wagner first became involved in anti-trafficking advocacy efforts when she was a USA ambassador to Luxembourg.

USA consumer watchdog seeks record fine against Wells Fargo for abuses
Lawyers are also reportedly debating whether the bank should pay a higher fine for the uneven treatment of auto loan customers. Representative Gregory Meeks, a Democrat from NY , accused Mulvaney of becoming acting director just to undermine the agency.

Sheriff Mehr said there will always be online sex trafficking from third parties from other countries but this law will help stop those in the United States. "It means so much to our family".

Law enforcement has lobbied for such legislation for years, and the bill had drawn support from Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter and a White House adviser.

The woman dabbed as Trump gave some remarks before signing the bill and then was given a few seconds to talk to the president.

"This is someone who can raise a level of awareness just by talking about it, by tweeting something out, by bringing legislators together", she said.

Rep. Wagner's Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA) targets online content that promotes or facilitates prostitution, making it punishable by up to 10 years in prison. I've passed a lot of bills - this was hard.

"It's hard to do big things".
