USA – Decriminalization and Legalization law Models for prostitution

Decriminalization and legalization of prostitution are unmitigated disasters in every country where these laws have passed. Local authorities in the Netherlands, Germany, and Australia, where pimping, sex buying, and brothel owning were legalized, struggle to contain the illegal sex trade and organized crime that thrives under this framework. Up to 90% of women and girls in brothels across Europe are undocumented foreign women from the poorest countries of Eastern Europe and the global south deemed to have been trafficked. Germany hosts country-wide, multi-storied chain brothels in which Johns are offered menus from which to choose sexual acts, some of which amount to torture. Since New Zealand passed its decriminalization law, street prostitution doubled in Auckland between 2006 and 2007. More

USA – Sex trafficking victims can sue Twitter

A federal judge in California has allowed a lawsuit against Twitter filed on behalf of two victims of child sexual abuse to move forward, having partly denied a motion by the social media platform to dismiss the complaint.

USA – DHS Insider Blows Whistle

A Department of Homeland Security insider has come forward to Project Veritas to blow the whistle on how international cartels exploit U.S. immigration loopholes to carry out massive child sex trafficking operations. The whistle-blower sat down with Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe to lay out how exactly these criminal networks get around immigration law. “It’s almost like they are coached, ‘Hey if you get caught, just go ahead and say this.’” The whistle-blower said most transnational gangs are involved in child sex trafficking because it’s a lucrative black market industry. “This to me is a bigger problem than terrorism is right now” …Every single one of these Transnational Criminal Organizations are involved in sex trafficking,” he said.
