Podcast on Rape Trafficking

From State Rep. Jeff Keicher:

Rep. Keicher Joins Capitol Crimes Podcast to Discuss Tackling Human Trafficking

No matter where you live, whether it’s in a big city, a suburban neighborhood or a small rural town — our communities are impacted by human trafficking.

I recently joined the Capitol Crimes: Crimes Behind the Legislation podcast to discuss how we are fighting human trafficking in Illinois and striving to help victims get their lives back on track.  

It is happening in our communities. Often in our own backyards. Modern day slavery, also know as human trafficking, is occurring right under our noses.

Human Trafficking is a crime of exploitation. Traffickers profit at the expense of their victims by forcing them to commit illegal acts, perform free labor, and/or engage in commercial sex. Victims can be of any age, race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, nationality, immigration status, cultural background, religion, socio-economic class, and education attainment level.

The most vulnerable are often targeted by traffickers:

  • Children in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems, including foster care; runaway and homeless youth;
  • individuals with substance use issues;
  • migrant laborers, including undocumented workers and participants in visa programs for temporary workers;
  • persons with limited English proficiency;
  • persons with disabilities; and
  • victims of intimate partner violence or other forms of domestic violence.

Human Trafficking takes an unimaginable toll on the lives of it victims.

Survivors who not only struggle to overcome the physical and emotional impact of their enslavement must also deal with the legal ramifications of their actions from when they were trafficked.

Several Illinois lawmakers talk to Capitol Crimes’, Dean Abbott, about their efforts to combat human traffickers and make it easier for survivors of trafficking to get their lives back on track.

  1. Funny. Pedophilia is now being exposed and in the conversation. Where’s Epstein and P Diddys blackmail tapes? Oh that’s right the FBI is on top of it.

  2. “Oh that’s right the FBI is on top of it.”

    Yes, and you’re the bottom.

  3. LOL. Double trigger.

    Remember all when Einsteins post they look exactly like Monk and Lil Joey.

    Keep proving it trolls.

  4. Lil Joey stutters in his posts. Add that to the long list of medical issues he has.
