DHS Struggling To Prevent Human Trafficking

January 12, 2016

President Barack Obama proclaimed January to be National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month—calling on “…all Americans to recognize the vital role we can play in ending all forms of slavery.”

Let’s hope the employees of Obama’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) heard the message.

On Monday, the DHS Inspector General released a report that found that poor information sharing between U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) resulted in human traffickers successfully using fiancé and work visas to traffic victims into the country.
