Go Play in Traffic

He may not believe women have a right to basic health care. He may not believe their children have a right to basic nutrition & educational services. He may not believe a woman has a right to make her own reproductive decisions. Nonetheless, the women of the 6th District vote to send Lake County Congressman Peter Roskam back to Washington year after year. How does he do it?

No, Peter Roskam is not at war against women at all, and he can prove it: he wants to stop human trafficking. According to the Daily Herald, Roskam recently sponsored a forum on human trafficking ...
"It (human trafficking) is happening in the suburbs," Roskam said. "It is happening in ways that should be apparent to us, but we don't even see it." Human trafficking is defined as obtaining a service through force, fraud or coercion, officials said. It could either be labor trafficking or sex trafficking.

To ensure that the suburbs are protected from the scourge of human trafficking, Roskam voted for H.R. 5272. This overwhelmingly House Republican supported bill will ...

House passes two Republican measures in response to surge of child migrants
