On Wednesday, Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee blocked a measure that would have increased the criminal punishment for child sex traffickers.
The amendment, which was introduced this month by Texas Rep. Chip Roy (R), would have lengthened the minimum sentencing for those who have been convicted of “trafficking children by force, fraud, or coercion” – raising the minimum punishment from 10-15 years to a minimum of 15-20 years, depending on the offense. The measure also would have increased the maximum penalties for the heinous crime by an additional 5 years.
However, thanks to the House Judiciary Democrats, who voted unanimously to shoot down the legislation, sex traffickers will continue to get lesser punishment than they rightfully deserve – something the radical left seems to be overwhelmingly in favor of, especially among the leadership. Just ask Ketanji Brown Jackson, the newest member of the US Supreme Court, who routinely let child sex offenders and child pornographers off the hook with severely reduced sentences throughout her career as a US District Court Judge.
In one case she presided over, she literally apologized for giving a 3 month ‘slap on the wrist’ sentence to a pervert convicted of possessing hundreds of files of child porn – Now, she resides on the highest court in the land.
