This weekend is Super Bowl Sunday in the United States. While it’s about American football, key government leaders say much more takes place, and it isn’t good.

Last February, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbot shocked Americans when he called the Super Bowl “the single largest human trafficking incident in the U.S.

This week, human trafficking legislation had bipartisan support.

U.S. Congressman Tim Walberg of Michigan helped lead the debate on the floor this week that helped pass 12 anti-human trafficking bills. “They hit the issues relative to the agencies, departments, homeland security, law enforcement, welfare, human service providers that come in contact with this issue and beefing up their ability to deter and detect.”
