house Bill H.R. 400

Checking Foreign Contractors For Ties to Human Trafficking

Argument in favor

The State Department and USAID should be taking internal measures to ensure that tax dollars spent on overseas contractors don’t support human trafficking. Delivering a report to Congress will simply bring transparency to that process.

Human trafficking is a fact if life, unfortunately. Anything we can do to reduce or contribution to it is a good thing.

Anything to slow human trafficking will inhibit "terrorist" activity because this is a primary source of funding. Plus, we need to care about women more.

Argument opposed

These agencies can be relied upon to have adequate safeguards that prevent tax dollars from being spent on contractors involved with human trafficking. There’s no need for Congress to require the State Department and USAID to deliver a report.

They don't care about trafficking - all they care about is the almighty dollar. We don't need congressional oversight, we need to hire people in those departments with morality.
