Isn’t human trafficking already a violation of federal law? I thought we couldn’t make our own laws if the feds already had similar laws. Does this mean that we’ll be again inundated with three years of crybabies, and activist judge Susan Bolton will do whatever she can to block these new state laws?

@Bret Linden,
The Mann Act covers crossing state lines, but most laws dealing with prostitution and child abuse are at the state level.

That would be much easier to swallow if human trafficking wasn’t so often handled by ICE agents, a federal agencies. While I don’t profess to be an expert, I have been doing some reading on the subject.
