Groups fight human trafficking

| November 14, 2012

The Colorado Motor Carriers Association, Colorado Truckstop Conference, locally elected and law enforcement officials kicked off an education and awareness campaign focused on combating human trafficking of underage children who are being forced to engage in prostitution. The event was held at Travel Centers of America in Commerce City on Monday, Nov. 12 at 10 a.m.

The campaign was launched in conjunction with Truckers Against Trafficking, a national non-profit organization based in Colorado, that is working with the trucking industry to help truck drivers and truck stop employees recognize children and others who may be being trafficked as part of prostitution rings and report it to law enforcement.

The campaign will use materials developed by TAT including wallet cards, DVDs, posters and other materials to help drivers and truck stop employees recognize and act when they suspect human trafficking may be occurring.

    The GOVERNMENTS time would be better spent rounding up and deporting illegal aliens/Mexicans.

    Mexicans/illegal aliens, BIRTHING & getting medical, in our country, is costing $500 billion A YEAR. A YEAR. Since 2002, that’s 10 years. A $1,000 billion is a TRILLION dollars. Over 10 years Mexicans have cost us $5 trillion of the 16 trillion dollar DEBIT, in medical to Mexicans in our country.

    Now Obama, the minority leader in our country is giving the children of illegal aliens THE DREAM ACT; which should be called the NIGHT MARE ACT. Mexicans caused the doubling of prisons in California since 1980′s. They have 6 kids to a family. Imagine what the costs is to SCHOOLS.

    We are being inundated by the Mexican ties that are spreading through out our country. In So Cal a white male can not get a working mans job because they are frozen of work by the Mexicans. THIS IS A NEW FORM OF GENOCIDE, something must be done to stop it.

    I’d be willing to pay higher taxes and adopt two Mexican children if the government would just take away Mike Smith’s computer.

    What a petty nonsensical thing to say about such a serious problem, the Mexican Invasion. This is what the population has turned into. A bunch of Jon Stewards try to make lite of serious issues.But this is to be expected from the BRAINWASHED plebs you and our country has turn into. You obviously know nothing. Speak to the points. Don”t make stupid statements that have no support except to show how stupid you are.
