International Megan’S Law To Prevent Demand For Child Sex Trafficking February 4, 2016
Christopher Smith, R-NJ
"Mr. Speaker, for years, the parents of the children who have been preyed upon by pedophiles—and advocacy groups like the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and the Megan Kanka Foundation—have been very supportive of legislation to better protect our children. Through their consistent, selfless work they have helped victims of abuse and have been an important part of the bipartisan, bicameral coalition supporting this important legislation. I urge my colleagues to read their statements submitted for the record, in support of passage of H.R. 515 The International Megan‘s Law to Prevent Demand for Child Sex Trafficking."
