Thune Statement on Passage of Human Trafficking Bill

“It’s good to see that bipartisanship has once again prevailed in the Senate so these victims can receive much-needed resources.”

WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, issued the following statement on the Senate’s bipartisan passage of the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act:

“I’m glad that Senate Democrats finally dropped their weeks-long filibuster of this bipartisan, common-sense bill that targets the scourge of human trafficking and helps give a voice to the voiceless. This effort to help end modern-day slavery should have been above politics all along, but it’s good to see that bipartisanship has once again prevailed in the Senate so these victims can receive much-needed resources.”
