The "Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act" can save lives. It can restore dignity to the victims of these heinous crimes. It can help end modern day slavery. Yet, Senate Democrats continue to block consideration of the bill over standard language they have admitted was in the bill all along. I took to the Senate floor to urge my colleagues to drop their manufactured outrage and stand with the victims by passing this bill.

At a recent Commerce, Justice, Science Subcommittee Hearing, ATF Director B. Todd Jones, said that Little Rock has had “unacceptable levels, at times, of violent crime” and the agency has discussed it as a potential Violence Reduction Network (VRN) site. Boozman also heard testimony from heads of the FBI, DEA and the U.S. Marshals Service.
