This is the September 26, 2018 hearing on "Hidden in Plain Sight: Understanding Federal Efforts to Stop Human Trafficking" held before the House Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security. From the opening statement of Martha McSally: "Human trafficking is a multi-billion-dollar industry, it enslaves approximately 25 million men, women, and children world-wide, through sexual exploitation, domestic servitude, and forced labor. [...] We all need to wake up because human trafficking is happening right here in our back yards and the victims of the tragic crimes are often hidden in plain sight. I call this hearing to shine a light on the heinous crime of human trafficking and highlight the work being done by our Federal agencies who partner with State, local, and Tribal governments, and law enforcement agencies to eradicate human trafficking from our streets, our local businesses, and our neighborhoods." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: John H. Hill, Steven W. Cagen, John Gore, and Michelle Demmert.
