President’s Interagency Task Force to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons Annual Meeting

Scheduled to begin at 2:00 pm.

The President’s Interagency Task Force to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons is a cabinet-level entity created by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000, which consists of some 15 agencies across the federal government responsible for coordinating U.S. government-wide efforts to combat trafficking in persons.

At each annual meeting, agencies report on progress made in various priority areas – victim services, rule of law, procurement and supply chains, and public awareness and outreach.

    Yawn…UN was putting out papers on human trafficking some 50 years ago and Fed LEA has been ‘on the issue’ for decades. So you form a new unit (let’s say an ‘interagency task force’) and all of the screwups by the old agencies are forgiven and forgotten as the mission baton’s been passed. The new agency gets a spinup time of a few years or so as a ‘learning curve’ and issues glowing reports full of unverifiable statements and statistics.

    Never fails to amaze me, he says sarcastically, that when we’re looking for bad guys like UBL, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed or Abu Sayeed Orakzai, one little guy, we can find him, fix him and kill him. One guy on the whole planet…yet we can’t seem to find the wheelers and dealers who run major slavery and drug rings. Slavery and drug rings that leave much larger wakes, never mind footprints, from their traffic. Yup, mighty strange.

      I believe this task force was formed by the Clinton administration. This is just a meeting.

        If Bill formed it, it was a ‘take out’ service for him.
        The Feds have had resources that dealt with human trafficking (AKA ‘;white slavery’) for a while but never underestimate the Feds ability to use a situation to kits advantage and create a new standalone agency.

          I don’t think this is a standalone agency.

            If you’re thinking in terms of a civilian standalone – no. The Federal Interagency Task Force to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons is cabinet level and is composed of 15 existing agencies that oversee the various agencies’ works in the area.
            In Fed-speak it’s standalone as it overarches the related works of those agencies and, while composed of those agencies’ reps, is responsible to the Boss in the WH.
            Ain’t Federal ways neat?
