HUMAN TRAFFICKING/JOE BIDEN/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Protecting people from human trafficking should be above politics. President Trump and his administration claim to care about combating human trafficking. But the reality tells a different tale. They have demonized the communities most susceptible to trafficking, and as a result, have hampered the federal government’s ability to fight this crime in our own country. By any relevant metric — federal investigations, charges and prosecutions against traffickers, number of survivors receiving immigration benefits — the Trump administration has grossly failed.”
