Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on House passage of twelve anti-human trafficking bills:

“Human trafficking affects hundreds of thousands of the most vulnerable in the world. Here in America, 17,000 people are trafficked into the country every year. It is truly a modern day form of slavery. We cannot sit in silence while this problem still exists. The House has now passed twelve bipartisan bills to combat human trafficking and help survivors recover. Though last year many of these same bills got stuck in the Senate, for the sake of all those affected by human trafficking, I’m hopeful that these bills will be passed through the Senate, sent to the President’s desk, and finally become law.”
