WOLF WAITING ON RESPONSE TO LETTERS TO AG HOLDER ON ALLOWING LOCAL ARRESTS OF CHILD SLAVERY RINGS

In a letter July 30 to AG Eric Holder, Wolf pointed out that an overwhelming majority of state and territorial attorneys general sent a letter to (House Leaders)...... indicating that Federal enforcement alone has proven insufficient in curbing the spread of Internet-facilitated child sex trafficking. In turn, the letter included a plea to federal lawmakers to grant state and local law enforcement the authority to investigate and prosecute perpetrators.

"I couldn't agree more," Wolf said, in response to the letter from the (state) AGs. He detailed the numerous letters he wrote to (U.S. AG) Holder over the last year that urged him to act on this issue and to provide to Congress a legal analysis and recommendations of legislative initiatives to tackle the problem of Web sites like Backpage.com, which is cited time and again in trafficking cases from across the country, including in Operation Cross Country.

"These last two letters have gone unanswered," Wolf said. "The legal analysis has never been provided, and the exploitation of innocents continues."

Delgaudio comment: "While AG Holder fiddles, local Virginia law enforcement must do preventive measures like a Child Safety Saturday (see below) instead of directly intervening in any suspected child slavery rings now operating in Virginia."
