This is the October 28, 2019 Field Hearing titled "Tackling Human Trafficking: Assessing Federal, State, and Local Information-Sharing Efforts" before the House Subcommittee on Intelligence and Counterterrorism of the Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Mark Walker: "Trafficking occurs in every State across the country. The vast majority relate to sex trafficking and the victims in women or girls. Sadly, human trafficking is one of the fastest-growing crimes in the United States. Our major highway system, our agriculture economy, and a growing number of criminal gangs have increased the prevalence of human trafficking within North Carolina. […] This bill, the Human Trafficking Detection Act of 2015, works to train and inform DHS personnel to do better in detecting and intersecting human traffickers as well as their victims specific to their professional roles as well as the making and the training curricula available to all State, local, and private-sector partners." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Christine S. Long, Ronnie A. Martinez, Carl L. Wall, II, and Aundrea Azelton.
