What's even more shocking? Your U.S. tax dollars are supporting human trafficking on U.S. military bases in Iraq and Afghanistan, where thousands of foreign nationals working for U.S. government contractors and subcontractors are victims of human traffickers.
President Obama recently issued an executive order strengthening the government's anti-human trafficking policy. This was a great step forward that expanded the definition of human trafficking and required additional preventative action by government contractors. But the president could only go so far with an executive action. Now, Congress needs to give this policy some teeth.
Urge your Members of Congress to include these strong anti-trafficking enforcements in the final version of the National Defense Authorization Act - because you never want another cent of your money to finance human trafficking!
