"This report was compiled in response to legislative language in Senate Report 114-68, which accompanies the 'Fiscal Year 2016 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Appropriations Act' (P.L. 114-113). Senate Report 114-68 states: HUMAN TRAFFICKING The Committee strongly supports ICE's [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] continued efforts to combat human trafficking, particularly the coordinated approach of its Anti-trafficking Coordination Teams [ACTeams]. ACTeams bring together Federal agents and investigators from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, ERO [Enforcement and Removal Operations], HSI [Homeland Security Investigations], the Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division, and prosecutors from U.S. Attorneys' Offices to conduct human trafficking investigations and prosecutions. However, the Committee notes that despite the high level of human trafficking occurring along the Interstate 95 corridor, there are no ACTeams located on the east coast north of Atlanta. The Committee directs the Department to provide a report not later than 120 days after the date of enactment of this act on the feasibility and advisability of creating additional ACTeams, particularly in the northeast region."
