“Human trafficking is a fast-growing global criminal enterprise that generates $32 billion annually and entraps millions of victims,” said Rep. Hultgren.

“Pursuing efforts to stop human trafficking at home and abroad requires we recognize the distinct connection between sex slavery and the prevalence of prostitution and pornography in a society. A successful strategy to defeat the global sex trade must address this link, and I look forward to hosting Members of Congress and their staff to hear from Exodus Cry.”

Rep. Hultgren has made combating human trafficking a priority in Washington as a member of the Congressional Human Trafficking Caucus:

  • This year, he was selected as a member of the Congressional Human Trafficking Task Force, formed by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor to bring Members of Congress together to produce legislation with the goal of combating international and domestic trafficking, while protecting and helping victims.
  • Previously, Rep. Hultgren was a featured panelist at the Celebrating Life Unity Breakfast in February, hosted by Patriots United, which addressed human trafficking’s threat to Illinois’ communities.
  • This past summer, he hosted a screening for Members of Congress and their staff of Nefarious: Merchant of Souls, a documentary that unveils the hidden world of sex slavery as recounted by former victims and traffickers.
  • He has co-sponsored the Fraudulent Overseas Recruitment and Trafficking Elimination Act of 2013 (H.R. 3344) and is an original co-sponsor of H.Con.Res. 66, a House Resolution urging that children trafficked in the United States be treated as victims of crime, and not as perpetrators.

  1. Hey it’s Randy. Part of that DuPage County Board in the 90’s, that wacked taxes, to the Tax Foundation’s top 30 highest taxed counties in the nations list.

    Ran us out of DuPage with just a few exceptions.

    Randy gets to chase international windmills on our dime it now appears.

    Reminds me of Obama’s biggest achievement after 10 years in Illinois.

    Outlawing the 100 Million landmines already in the ground worldwide.

  2. I don’t agree with your assessment of Congressman Hultgren.

    He is trying to generate public interest via forums and other meetings on things such as Common Core and International Trafficking.

    I think that he is doing a wonderful job!

  3. Hultgren’s our own little Lindsey Graham baby RINO.

    Republirats like him are precisely why Illinois is in toilet.

    How about the federal/state regimes’ trafficking in tax-slaves
