Posted on 01/20/2019 12:08:58 PM PST by Albion Wilde
President Donald Trump has signed into law the Frederick Douglass Act, a bill authorizing $430 million to combat human trafficking.
The measure, which was introduced by Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), is designed to boost government efforts to prevent sex and labor trafficking and protect victims both nationally and internationally...
The release also included a statement from Kenneth B. Morris Jr., the great-great-great-grandson of Douglass.
"If my great ancestor were here today, I believe he would be driven to lead the struggle against contemporary forms of slavery," Morris stated.

The mainstream media are jubilant about this landmark legislation!
Demented Left won’t like this.
“...contemporary forms of slavery...”
Thank Goodness our President GETS IT!
The Dems have slavery locked up at pretty much every level, don’t they? They’re NOT going to like this!
I hope this new law can snare the likes of Slick Clinton and his trafficker, Epstein! *SPIT*
“Demented Left wont like this.”
For sure. They have to take care of their perv donors.
Thanks. I bookmarked CBN News
What are we going to spend $430 million on that we dont spend already on this issue?j
Building the wall is a key factor in stopping human trafficking.
I would love to see Human Trafficking destroyed. That being said, why doesnt Trump ask to take some of that money and BUILD THE WALL. Is there anyone who thinks that children, female AND MALE, arent being trafficked across the BORDER??
Born into slavery and rising from his humble beginnings as he did, Douglass personified what it means to be a "self-made man" -- the core of the American spirit.
This is obviously Islamophobia. /sarc
It's no surprise that something like this wasn't passed and signed during the Obamanation.
Thanks Albion Wilde.
I’d like to believe that. I can’t find any other source than CBN.
What a man! Frederick Douglass must be troubled to see what has become of the people for whom he fought so hard to end prejudice against, just to see them act in ways to bring that prejudice back again. What a Man!
Today’s sex trafficking IS slavery. It’s about frickin’ time it was brought to the attention of the country and the world, and pointed out the truth. Thank you Donald Trump.
D'Souza depicted him beautifully in one of his recent films, I think America: Imagine the World Without Her (2014).
To my point that the MSM isn't covering it. It's mainly been covered on Catholic news sites.
Catholic News Agency: President Trump signs anti-human trafficking bill into law
Totally agree. A great man and a naturally “stable genius”, who largely taught himself to read and write after given a few lessons in the alphabet.
Thanks much! I’m sharing the news.
We are not getting a wall.. instead Mexico n central America got 10 Billion additional taxpayer dollars.. we got a fake shutdown from leadership that can’t subtract 5 from 10. Amnesty is here, but nothing for citizens and our children.
