Rep. Kleefisch releases anti-human trafficking bill
MADISON, Wis. — Rep. Joel Kleefisch, R-Oconomowoc, released a package of bills Thursday intended to combat human trafficking in Wisconsin, according to a press release from his office.
According to the release, the bills will combat repeated solicitation of prostitutes, particularly children. Kleefisch said in the release that prostitution is a frequent destination for victims of human trafficking.
“We’ve heard terrifying stories of 6-year-olds being kidnapped and trafficked, daughters being forced into trafficking by their fathers, and women turning to prostitution when they have no other hope for income. The work we’re doing at the Capitol is going to positively affect our daughters, their friends, all the girls out there, and the women and boys, too,” Kleefisch said.
