LANSING - Attorney General Bill Schuette today unveiled the 2013 Report on Human Trafficking by the first Michigan Commission on Human Trafficking.
The Commission, co-chaired by Schuette and Representative Kurt Heise (R-Plymouth), Chairman of the House Criminal Justice Committee, was bi-partisan in nature and included members of the state legislature, law enforcement, state government, and anti-trafficking activists.
“Every day in America, human traffickers prey on the vulnerable to force them into providing commercial sex or labor. We have seen human trafficking victims robbed of their childhood, their health, their dignity, their families, and even their lives,” said Schuette. “The work of the Michigan Commission on Human Trafficking shined a light on these criminals, vividly illustrating that this is not just a problem for the world – it is a problem for Michigan. And now the real work begins.”
