One of my priority issues at the Capitol is combating human trafficking. If you’re not familiar with that term, you may know it by its older name: slavery. Trafficking often means forced prostitution, and frequently, the victim is a child.
A few years ago, a physician working in Bexar County introduced me to a sex trafficking survivor, a young boy who nearly died from the physical trauma. I later learned the Interstate 10 corridor is a major hub of trafficking activity in the United States.
