I am writing to praise Congressman Dave Reichert for his contributions to the House of Representatives Task Force on Human Trafficking which led to passing of his legislation to combat sex trafficking of foster children. His original bill, HR 4058, addresses certain risk factors that put foster children in danger of becoming victims of sex trafficking.
This legislation was recently packaged with other bills addressing human trafficking, passed by Congress, and signed into law by the president. At a time when Congress is plagued by gridlock it is comforting to know that our representative, Congressman Dave Reichert, is able to compromise and pass important legislation that protects some of the most vulnerable individuals in our society. I urge others to join me in casting their vote for Congressman Dave Reichert this election.
