Beyond that, their American people may not be fully aware of.
Americans were being held. There are names that are annual power everything in the country is quite contrary to what you say, welcome to lantern risk ministry program to bring light into the darkness of human trafficking. It's time the light the way to freedom. This is lantern rest.
We tell the stories we talk about rest, we empower you to do something about it once said, let it not be said I was silent when the welcome to the lantern rescue.
Today we have read in Mark with this and in a redness is definitely been studying this is she is in law school the laws. This is a perfect human trafficking in the stands at being a really critical thing in order to get the prosecutions that we need to get the people off the street). Now I know why my mind a lot and I and being able to get the proper and so really it appears that in the United States is been great advances in recent years in in by creating laws that can be enforced illegal well on early and eat their own lives.
While out walking really wasn't that long about dramatic. This is so it's interesting there's several laws, but in order for things to fit under the federal law. How does that work semis got a crossed state lines or how does that work on other way that you are not have to cut line category.
There a lot about the work I'd really like super important and helpful perfect on top of the gigantic things they did when they change the law was they change the sentences right thing.
They became harsher between 2150% increase in and that was driven by tracking the production not because that creates Any more. There are more willing to come forward and not made it a lot easier for prosecutor previously while you're doing anything to get the big number are really willing to talk you through whatever our company packing my Not only about 103 by me and really reluctant to come forward if they were located. Other median they were risk a lot. If I or really that narrative around them and getting them.what looked like now listeners really should know something or what would be helpful if you feel like for them to know about this really a little more educational than normal. There aren't many today, but what's really important is like that is the wording for anything because we all can basically identify the kind you know when something wrong but knowing what to call it, knowing all really going to help make ministry here in the right place to file for in getting the proper hat on how sexual assault is different than sexual trafficking and is similar here is well though it really important to show think about about her special trucking bit different than NY thinking fall under that category and it really is the bright line think it is a transaction. It doesn't have to be for money equity for drug what ever transaction where one is faithful to another person for a momentary period of fact or for forced labor as well with really good about our lives. I think we don't just have laws against sex trafficking. We have laws against labor as well. So the protected and the conflict that handles the prosecution of the company with the template prosecute several labor trafficking cases in recent years, but is really amazing.
I cannot In US that there is and people are getting prosecuted for it was his truly incredible talents was actually actually look like labor trafficking when when you talk when you come across it in the United States is in the states are usually thought a lot about you know your body parlors usually you have one case a little conversation about which washer but J's about gentlemen who brought a veil from another country to the states along with her 12-year-old child and basically just slavery as well as slavery began to withhold basically hold them comply to plot were struck a chord with me because we see that same enticement oversees the girl a female job situation. Joe, you really extravagant holiday individuals, but here to realize all my goodness, you know, there that was that was doing this you have over fellow talking on his why these statues draws no I'm not really very close to that expert audit because we NG you have to be first on this level because oversees the appeal go to prosecution written down what they are written down. They don't they don't know how to act on it are properly interpreted, recently literally just in the last few months I was sitting in a country Atty. Gen.'s office. I requested that she had the tea that was out of the country that Force leader there. The you're really staying every bursting operations, but I needed to understand the prosecution of what they would need for evidence work well dictate now cannot be illegal for us to do is big operation right and it would be illegal for us to think operation illegal for us a bottle. You know it so that we start looking appeal go to this project in collaboration with other partners just I will go and holy country… We can't know their their Penal Code result that we can following your activity to stop trafficking so you talk about the laws here in the US really John and I say another country.
One of the countries that lead the way in the right terminology, the right showed the right wall log like state laws so important you are leading the way there. Still, the general public as well as law enforcement who do not completely parallel and do not completely know how to act on those walls and that their organization, job training, not just about what you heard while training as part here's what you drug use, which are state laws are federal all know that God all that's new activity in America. Believe it or not, but the flight it up for this educational just highlights the side that wow what a great opportunity for us to be praying.
I'm praying that this informational get spread to the people in different countries so that they can have laws that protect people as as well as being able to prosecute people and have the sentencing like your talk about rim that really affected no folks here so it takes wisdom to get all the stuff to limit and am so grateful for the show where we get the information out there because I certainly had no idea we will be right back with much more, especially today were going to talk about the national strategies really are all involved in the combat human interest faith-based organization international rescue operations for people suffering from human trafficking lantern specializes in sending former US special operations law enforcement and intelligence personnel department with hallucinations and assist them in reading specialized units combat ongoing security from genocide, terrorism, contract is a nonprofit charity. They offer services free of charge to human trafficking is thrown into the second largest criminal activity in reaching an estimated $50 billion activity lantern rescue was developed rapidly to combat trafficking and operates through train international network in order to rescue women and children, sex and labor slavery and facilitates gearing up for operations right now and you can see how you can support the following program contains sensitive content including accounts of sexual abuse and suicide listen. Discretion is advised.
Welcome back to lantern rescue work today.
We were talking about actual laws and what it takes to get things prosecuted both United States and really how that applies a little bit overseas but you know these strategies are important in getting this word out. I mean this is something that really is just happened. It seems like in the last 20 years) 2005 really only find out one thing in the world. The lot lot very difficult thing to do and you not gotten 20 years has been incredible and I know a lot of probably don't care about human trafficking here in United States. They often are as frequent simple drug possession or not. I can't but they are gaining momentum and they are becoming recognized as something that is in the crate around the world and unite thinking though that actual lot look at earlier at 18 USC chapter 77 in the sections that you will look at specifically for trafficking at 1589. In 1590 labor trafficking and 91 backpacking children for throttle origin really important not to take away from that – I will read whole thing is ever and I laid over on really important is that if the child is under 18 years old. You do not have to prove that there is any coercion for thinking in fact testing under 18 years old and being you for-profit in effect. Ministry makes it back, trafficking in a candy prop. That way, even if they you know quote unquote went willingly very important to even predict something think that they was the boyfriend and how to get case because they said it was okay, whatever that situation is extra and it is no wrong and it can be prosecuted very important to take away from that other things that are important are the mandatory minimum Accu.
The child is 14 years or under extracting crime. The minimum sentence of the chapter will that is 15 years and I can go up to life. If everything it is a 14 to 18. The minimum 10 years and they can additionally go away for life. Though those are here and here they don't count like a lot.
You got a thing of aggravating attractors not most likely not trafficking. One victim and are definitely one of those candy aggravated and you can get email seven years 8816 you can get really not the off the with that little printer that that not less than 15 years or for life. They can talk life and not really credible enough part of the tracking that allowed them to come for because these were intensified by information, prosecution or law course direction. You have a base America. This is what is know this is no way I can think of one country work in about 20 years quite frequently, but most work yet. Although the prosecution sometimes easier to say what is not. But someplace where it is usually five years spot 757 and no crosses able were able to having you swallow place in the US structure is Erica this is what completely right is vital that you think of the publication prosecuted is that the judge is that the Atty. Gen. about what our sentences look like why and interestingly you sent us. Also there is a US code that's establishing a national strategies to combat human triad yet so 34 you P 2711 you want to look at the top of the national caddy to combat human trafficking.
In this strategy is codified strategy that is working to integrate the federal, state and local law enforcement efforts to investigate and prosecute human trafficking cases jointly, which is much any kind. However, there's always that monopoly FBI local, state, Lee who gets which jurisdiction in the belly that you know plant contention and is content but with this and it does happen really well with this. It shows that it is important thing that no matter what were all trying to work together in the coordinated effort everyone, the same goal, and it's really incredible to see that not only are we putting this law on the book that human trafficking is a legal leader. In some countries a lot of countries around the world have a trafficking law on the book designing a prosecuting it not necessarily need a they have on our establish something like this. That is a national strategy which seems not as important to some people but if you think about it you can put the document about never prosecuted when you go so far as to work out this entire strategy and put it down into law, showing a real commitment you prosecuting these traffickers into getting deficit victims which is really unique United States into only a few other countries in the world are willing to take control in preventing trafficking time when you look at the strategy you know actually rent sent over to us.
One of the things mentioned wasn't encouraging to me, the Bureau of Justice.
This is from 42 human trafficking task force in something that's huge and yet incredible layer and I think it really speak to why we hunt our efforts over the United States because over America really had a lot there willing to allocate money to task forces with you. It doesn't sound like a lot a lot in the money it takes to run is a lot in the training and in all that and unique to America. Other countries aren't doing a meeting might have along the book, they don't have training. They definitely don't have a national strategy. That's why were there we go there free of charge to help them get closer to where America is that you do some consultation here in the state and we do help out top forth is a miracle to but by the vast majority America very well that you handle human trafficking cases in the next step in the profit that is victim coming forward for people to something if you think you see something called a national trafficking Line number is 888-3737 888 call them and give them a Another major thing that is established in the national strategy is that the Atty. Gen. designate has designated effective conditional district at least one thing I think that he is tracking Courtney felt everywhere in America live in a federal judicial district and then you can look up and see who your human trafficking coordinator is for that and I mean punch out for your district in human trafficking laws and prosecution so I doubt the problem to begin directly in touch with them even get into the office that way as well.
That will have to report this on each trafficking or if you are not trafficking. So let me see if I can.
That's so say somebody that you have a lives and lives in Atlanta) and so they there is a federal judge in my life.
That's what this is over that well know for the federal judicial district.
Every day they find about it is judicial tech across the country and I'm really not talking later. I want to say their 13 in the Catholic like that so so there's 13 districts and so each of those are broken up in each.
Those 13 districts have someone who is over, specifically that's their job in life is to be over. Human trafficking in their district and I was wrong and have a locket and it is 94 federal district organizing the 12 regional Park at I think not… You birthdate you know Matt out and there will be someone that is at least 94 of the people in United States that their job is the human trafficking coordinator were not district.
There is a new area you will be helping to facilitate training enough mother father the help of the training of law enforcement and a people that might be encountering victims of trafficking in their you know really helping to move along the prosecutorial process with human trafficking in their district last Europe probably have dealt with conversation. I would see them localized site that is that okay trafficking in every one of them had all all is that nobody said local communities.
Those were close to the family.
Those were close to the individual. They burst like the chips just didn't come up after development or that's partly a great deal is just doing what you drive, you look like you don't show it off. I did all you nobody know what it looks like right at this point, but believe there still fill your showed your butt 20 shares although because you know what got cases, you know, the young lady's name that we interviewed Stu Epperson to go sailing. Never ever forget those words, just wanted to anybody care you know that's why God's putting people in our path to see that M and R opportunity to cure with your teacher or neighbor or a pastor.
Wherever are you know you see something, say something, you do know it's so important that we care) and think about everything in my area and it is not shocking and unfortunate homicide on one of the comments we've been getting about a particular case is you know what anyone anything that anyone notice of their household and very difficult for the comportment difficult for people around and used someone as something and I understand that. However, the people in this victim believe Recently to face my area of the Renner life now living with regret that they didn't say anything. Personally I thought I was coming from and in my life and you set up a check on me. I would be grateful you're looking at my relative.
You're looking out for them and I know I can fill in a situation for the teacher and uncomfortable reporting talking to client is anonymous and there a lot of people are also reluctant to catheter apartment think they don't know is the kind of anyone even do anything happen in the crime and people will do something and if you're wrong and nothing happened. At least you won't have that request made. You were right, and that that person with hunger killed because he didn't have to protect coming. Think about again put that number in emotional notes but can you give an hour more time in absolutely and 88 3737 888 yeah Mark I you know just your hearing it from the sheriff for Monaco law enforcement.
