"I've heard statistics where trafficking in the world is more now than ever has been in the history of the world and you wouldn't believe that with modern day everything", said Trump. "We are all together, politicians both Republicans and Democrats, in signing this bill and presenting this to you in your honor". It weakens a legal shield for online services that host abusive content, including sex trafficking. Seven of its executives were arrested a few days before the signing of the bill on a 93-count indictment that alleges the website facilitated prostitution and laundered tens of millions of dollars in profits.

The law passed Congress overwhelmingly. That pimp is accused of shopping Robinson around on Backpage.com, a classified advertising website which, controversially, has included ads for sexual services. M.A. was invited to the White House to witness the signing of the Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act.

Wagner first became involved in anti-trafficking advocacy efforts when she was a U.S. ambassador to Luxembourg.

"This wasn't just happening in other countries, it's hiding in plain sight in our own country", she said, noting that in the last five years, there has been an 846% increase in child sex trafficking reports at the same time the crime has moved "from the streets to the Internet".

Strawberries have a dirty secret, according to new report
Many pesticides have been banned since 1996 when legislation was passed to require the EPA to study and regulate pesticides. The group advises consumers to buy organic produce whenever it's available to avoid as many pesticide residues as possible.

Law enforcement has lobbied for such legislation for years, and the bill had drawn support from Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter and a White House adviser. "It means so much to our family", she said. But the president ignored shouted questions about those topics after the signing ceremony. The woman said from behind Trump in the Oval Office, "I am not a survivor".

But an awareness deficit still remains, something Wagner plans to continue to address, which includes partnering with the hospitality industry, visitors bureaus, educators, emergency room nurses and transportation companies, among others.

Amends the Communications Act of 1934 to declare that section 230 does not limit: (1) a federal civil claim for conduct that constitutes sex trafficking, (2) a federal criminal charge for conduct that constitutes sex trafficking, or (3) a state criminal charge for conduct that promotes or facilitates prostitution in violation of this bill.
