This Wednesday, the Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee blocked the measure that would have increased the punishment for child sex traffickers.
The amendment was introduced by TX Rep. Chip Roy ® and would have increased the penalties for the convicted of “trafficking children by force, fraud, or coercion.’’ It would have raised the minimum punishment from 10-15 years to a minimum of 15-20 years.

But, house Judiciary Democrats voted unanimously to shoot down the legislation, and sex traffickers would still get lesser punishment than the one they really deserve.
Ketanji Brown Jackson, the newest member of the US Supreme Court, let child offenders and child pornographers off the hook with reduced sentences.
She even apologized for giving a three-month slap on wrist sentence to a pervert convicted of possessing hundreds of files of child porn.
Rep. Roy criticized their colleagues for their decision. These are the Dems who stopped the measure.

Roy said: “I mean, as a father of two, as a former prosecutor, it defies all belief, all common sense that you would say that someone who traffics a child in the sex industry – actually puts a child into that environment for that child to be sexually abused – that that individual should not have a minimum sentence or 15 years,”
"It defies all belief, all common sense, that you would say that someone who traffics a child in the sex industry — actually puts a child into that environment, or that child sexually abused — that individual should not have a minimum sentence of 15 years?"
