By Olivia Enos for The Daily Signal on February 10, 2015—
“In his recent testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Gary Haugen, President and CEO of International Justice Mission, shared practical steps that Congress could take to end human trafficking. Haugen emphasized that local law enforcement and a fair judicial system are the keys to defeating this global scourge. Without ending impunity, he says, human trafficking will continue to flourish.

The Heritage Foundation will soon release a paper that provides in-depth analysis and actionable policy solutions to defeat this global phenomenon.”
