In a stunning move, every Democrat on the U.S. House Judiciary Committee voted to kill a plan to toughen federal sentences for child sex trafficking.

An amendment filed by Congressman Chip Roy (R-TX) would have lengthened mandatory minimum sentences for those convicted of child sex trafficking.


It was opposed by every Democrat, who voted as a bloc to kill it.

“Judiciary Committee Democrats just unanimously REJECTED Rep. Roy’s amendment to increase penalties for all child sex trafficking offenses,” Roy’s office tweeted.

 

The Democrat move to protect child sex traffickers stunned Republicans.

“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?,” said Roy.

 

Congressional Democrat opposition to tougher sentences for child sex trafficking comes as Democrats nationwide take a lighter touch on sex offenses against children.

In 2019 Virginia’s Democrat governor and Democrat-controlled legislature repealed a state law requiring schools to publicly report when children are raped.

In one Sterling, Virginia school an employee, an outspoken Democrat and liberal activist, supplied middle-school children with books instructing them on how to become sex workers.

The National Education Association, the nation’s largest government school union and a top donor to Democrat candidates, is currently considering a plan to fight parents who oppose their plans to teach children their “right to sexual identity” and encourage children to discuss sex with adults, without informing parents.

Can it be that many of them would be affected by this?

Just say they are involved in the trafficking for the simple reason they enjoy children in their beds and not adults . The whole party needs prison time as in the rest of their lives and hard time included as in making smaller rocks from larger rocks . They want to go back with many things so I say bring back the old hard times reality for all of them . They deserve nothing less .

Yeah. Maybe many of them are making money off the sex trade going on at our Southern border. How can anyone be a Democrat? Their brain is wired differently than mine because I hate to hear of any child being abused in anyway.

What drugs are these idiot on? This makes no sense at all, unless they are pedophiles and are worried they will lose their prey. It seems like the Democrats are Hell bent to support crimes, from what I read it was just the Democrats that shot the law down, what possible benefit is there to not pass this bill?
