Victims and Orange County officials used a hearing of the House Foreign Affairs committee Monday at Cal State Fullerton to ask Chairman Ed Royce for more help fighting human trafficking.
“Trafficking is a global problem, but unfortunately for us not a faraway problem,” Rep. Royce said.
In the past two years, the Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force, a community partnership of law enforcement, religious groups and non-profits, has assisted more than 250 victims, Royce said. Ninety-three percent were women and more than a third of them were from foreign countries.
The hearing looked at problems and solutions the global, and regional, fight on human trafficking faces.
