Advisory Committee on Human Trafficking Releases Final Report


Deterring human trafficking in America’s commercial transportation industry is just one step in the Trump Administration’s commitment to fighting against these abhorrent crimes. President Trump has brought to bear the full resources of the federal government to working against human trafficking, protecting victims, and prosecuting traffickers.

On July 2, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Advisory Committee on Human Trafficking submitted its final report to the Department providing recommendations on actions the Department can take to help combat human trafficking, and recommended best practices for states and local transportation stakeholders in combating human trafficking.

In 2017, the Department of Homeland Security identified over 500 victims of human trafficking and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children estimated 1 out of every 7 runaways were likely victims of child sex trafficking.
