Rubio Applauds Senate Passage of Bill to Combat International Human Trafficking

Dec 2, 2022 | Press Releases

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) applauded the Senate’s unanimous passage of the bipartisan International Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2022. The bill would reauthorize and enhance critical programming, policy, and funding essential to the United States’ efforts to combat human trafficking. Senators Bob Menendez (D-NJ), Jim Risch (R-ID), and Tim Kaine (D-VA) are original cosponsors. The bill now heads to the U.S. House of Representatives.

  • “The United States must continue to lead the fight against the horrors of human trafficking. This bill would provide the resources necessary to combat human trafficking and care for the victims of this evil. I urge my colleagues in the House to pass this bipartisan bill quickly.” — Senator Rubio

Background. Building off of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000, the legislation would: 

  • Propose reforms to expand U.S. efforts to combat human trafficking, including forced labor;
  • Propose new requirements for the United States Agency for International Development to integrate prevention efforts into the agency’s global programming; and
  • Amend the U.S. Foreign Assistance Act to ensure that a country’s commitment and progress toward implementing effective counter-trafficking measures is a factor when determining recipients of U.S. development assistance.
