“Commercial Sex, the New ‘Terrorism’?” - Why You Need To Worry About H.R. 3530
Christina A. DiEdoardo, Esq
H.R. 3530 is the latest in a series of legislation which purportedly aims to “help” individuals classified as “victims of human trafficking” by expanding governmental powers of electronic surveillance, treating customers identically with principals and organizers and curtailing the due process rights of defendants. The federal government wants to attack “demand” on the assumption that if it does that, “supply” will dry up in response. The flaw in this analysis is that the bill provides a perverse incentive for principals and organizers to take their operations even further underground, making it harder for the supposed intended beneficiaries of the bill to be able to access services and seek assistance.
