US bishops call for more aggressive enforcement of laws against human trafficking

Catholic World News - October 29, 2010

Bishop John C. Wester of Salt Lake City, chairman of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ committee on migration, praised the Trafficking Victims Protection Act on its tenth anniversary but called for more aggressive enforcement. “The TVPA and its subsequent re-authorizations have marked a significant, bipartisan achievement of which our nation should be proud,” Bishop Wester said. “While these laws have helped in providing the needed tools to combat human trafficking, they should be enhanced and used more aggressively in the years ahead.”
