In Texas, there
are tens of thousands of victims living in the shadows of a hidden crime: human trafficking.
But there is much being done to fight this scourge on society and end what amounts to
modern-day slavery in our own backyards.
Judiciary Committee recently passed a bill I introduced, the Abolish Human Trafficking Act, which would provide support to the survivors of
human trafficking and the law enforcement agencies working to combat it. This legislation builds upon the Justice for Victims of Trafficking
Act, a bill I authored that became law in 2015.

The Abolish Human Trafficking Act would strengthen and reauthorize programs for survivors and provide resources for raising awareness
and preventing this heinous crime.
proud to have worked across the aisle to advance this legislation, and I look forward to getting it to the President’s desk.
