Christian post reports that last month through Operation Cross Country, the FBI located two hundred victims of sex trafficking as part of an enforcement campaign that was conducted alongside its local and state partners and arrested or identified one hundred twenty-six suspects of child sexual exploitation and human trafficking offenses. Over fifty of the victims were minors. The effort was a two-week-long campaign that involved state and local law enforcement as well as national organizations.
Tragically human trafficking and sex trafficking is alive and well in our state, with places like Milwaukee considered hubs. Assembly Speaker Robin Vos has convened a special task force on this issue and has named Representative Jerry O’Connor as chair. Hopefully this task force will make realistic and meaningful recommendations that can actually help stop this sordid industry.
