New Bill to Combat Sex-Trafficking With Help From Hotels

Anneke Lucas, who was a victim of sex-trafficking as a child, started a petition in January for legislation that would make it mandatory for hotels to post publicly visible signs of sex-trafficking as well as train hotel employees how to recognize indicators. Now, New York Assemblywoman Amy Paulin seeks to pass a bill mirroring the petition in an effort to combat trafficking.

“This is too important,” Paulin said. “We know girls are being trafficked in hotels, and the more awareness we can bring, the greater potential we have of rescuing them and preventing future victims.”

Good intentions, but I have a feeling this won't turn out well. Take a look at how this has worked out in the UK: http://nypost.com/2017/04/05/hotel-calls-police-after-mistaking-father-for-pedophile/ Sex trafficking is indeed alive and well within the USA, but this isn't the way to fix it.
