As we approach the 20th anniversary of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act, President Donald Trump is expected to propose a $42 million budget increase to expand the federal governments ability to fight human trafficking and offer support to the victims.
Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter and senior adviser has played a huge role in advocating for more support of human trafficking victims and also helped bring more awareness to this global issue.
The President and his daughter, along with Attorney General William Barr plan to announce their proposal at a special event on Friday at the White House.
“The President’s 2021 budget provides $70 million to support and enhance the investigative and prosecutorial capacity of the Department of Justice, an increase of $4 million over 2020,” while “an additional $123 million is provided for [Department of Justice] grants programs supporting State and local efforts to combat human trafficking and support victims of human trafficking, an increase of $38 million over 2020.” – Ivanka Trump

In 2018 she led talks that helped create bills that cracked down on online sex trafficking which eventually became law. She has also worked to create legislation that provides law enforcement with the resources they need to better understand trafficking and combat the crime at the local level
“President Trump has fought, and will continue to fight, the scourge of human trafficking in this country and abroad, ensuring that survivors can access the services they need,” – Ivanka Trump
