California Legislators Push Bill to Make it Easier for Sex Traffickers to Sell Poor Women on the Streets

Although the Assembly Public Safety Committee voted 6 to 2 in favor of SB 357, Assemblyman Kelly Seyarto (R- Murrieta) spoke passionately against the bill. Those that get arrested are cited and released, and given a chance to decide if they want to get away from their traffickers, he explained. We need to have more police involvement in preventing trafficking. “This is going in the exact opposite direction. This is making communities less safe,” Seyarto concluded.
