Human Trafficking - A New Form of Slavery

President George W. Bush signs H.R. 972, the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2005, in the Dwight D. Eisenhower Executive Office Building Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2006. The bill directs the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the State Dept., and Dept. of Defense to incorporate anti-trafficking and protection measures for vulnerable populations, particularly women and children, into their post-conflict and humanitarian emergency assistance and program activities.

With 3,200 arrests in the first year alone, the Department of Homeland Security's Operation Predator, launched in July 2003, targets those suspected of child sex crimes, including traffickers.
