Praise For NJ Human Trafficking Law

The Polaris Project’s ‘2013 State Ratings on Human Trafficking Laws’ put New Jersey  right at the top. According to the report, New Jersey is one of only two states to  successfully fulfill all rated categories. “This report confirms that New Jersey’s new anti-human trafficking law is a critical step in protecting the victims of this despicable crime and sends the unmistakable message to those who engage in such vile behavior that our state will not tolerate human bondage,” said Assemblywoman Alison Littell McHose. “I commend Gov. (Chris) Christie and my legislative colleagues for taking action on this issue which violates the fundamental right of freedom for its victims.”

In June, Gov. Christie signed into law legislation sponsored by McHose, that revises and expands the State’s human trafficking laws. The Assemblywoman is lauding today which shows New Jersey is one of the two best states in the U.S. when it comes to statues fighting human trafficking.

“I had no doubt that this new law would go a long way in protecting every individual affected by this heinous criminal activity, including our youth, who are viewed by human traffickers as property or a commodity that can be traded at their discretion,” said McHose. “Today’s report shows New Jersey is on the right track in its efforts in fighting back against this modern day slavery.”

According to the New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice, there were 179 reported human trafficking victims from September 16, 2005 to March 1, 2012, including 93 victims of labor trafficking, 60 of sex trafficking, and 26 of both labor and sex trafficking.
