ABSTRACT

Human Smuggling and Trafficking Center: Fact Sheet   [open pdf - 320KB]

"Section 7202 of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 (IRTPA) established the Human Smuggling and Trafficking Center (HSTC) to achieve greater integration and overall effectiveness in the U.S. Government's enforcement and other response efforts to address the separate but related issues of human smuggling, human trafficking, and criminal facilitation of clandestine terrorist travel. In 2015, a National Security Council Deputies Committee refocused the HSTC's mission on human trafficking exclusively, in recognition of the creation and advancement of other entities managing the other mission sets. [...] Human trafficking is a serious human rights issue both domestically and across the globe. The HSTC brings together law enforcement, intelligence, and diplomacy specialists from U.S. government agencies to convert information into intelligence that enables law enforcement, policy and diplomatic actions."
