Federal Prosecution of Child Sex Trafficking Significantly Declined Under Trump Administration: Report

TRAC, a nonpartisan research institute at Syracuse University, has released a new report finding that federal prosecution of child sex trafficking cases has significantly declined since 2017, the year President Trump took office. Comparing case rates over the last three presidential administrations, researchers found the number of cases prosecuted was higher during the Obama years compared to the present Trump administration.


The report


The number of prosecutions for child sex trafficking has significantly declined during the Trump Administration, after climbing steadily during the Obama years. Prosecutions reached a peak of 273 and 277 in FY 2016 and FY 2017, respectively. Since then, the number of cases dipped to 221 in FY 2018, and then continued to decline to less than 200 in FYs 2019 and 2020.






Well there goes the lie that Trump has been going after sex trafficking.

Why does this fact checked one say different.

Just did a quick search to see who they are and this TRAC company doesn't seem very transparent.


ETA - Maybe some are prosecuted in State Court not Federal. Look at the big difference in the numbers. Something is off.

Some will prove the Obama "prosecutions" were smaller in "yield".

i.e. more cases, less "quality" (25 watt bulb)

Trump cases bigger fish more "quality" (100 watt bulb) 😎

Both light bulbs look the same at a glance 😎

Prosecuting sex trafficking is down.

Arrests are up.

I wonder if that correlates to the Soros-funded new breed of local progressive prosecutors.

The ones who won't prosecute rioters, rapists. looters.

Wouldn't surprize me to see these leftists dropping prosecution cases of human/child trafficking.

Who actually believed this was something Trump cared about. A vector for going after prostitution and immigrants... sure. Sex trafficking... hells no.

I just read yesterday that they arrested 150+ people in Ohio for sex trafficking ? Was that news release not true?

Arrests are up, but prosecutors aren't prosecuting the cases.

Obama was the bestest
Trump is a xenophobic racist homophobic trans hating misogynist.

Is that what you are looking for?

I am sure that is some of it.

Something is wrong with the OP's numbers.

More people were just arrested in Ohio, than were prosecuted in all of 2019 according to that graph.

Look at the prosecutors.

Are they democrats or republicans?

As head of the executive branch Trump is responsible for enforcing laws...he needs to have Barr replace these dysfunctional prosecutors or replace him with someone who will...he is responsible for allowing his AG to allow this to happen.

Edit: If this info that arrests are up but prosecutions are down is true...the fact that they had to say nonpartisan just makes me think they probably are...

I wonder if the child trafficking arrest rates are representative of the illegal immigration across the border?

Illegal immigration was much higher during the Obama years, therefore, more trafficking and more arrests.

I guess restricting illegal immigration across the southern border is an effective PREVENTATIVE for the trafficking in the first place?

Remember the children and not allow them to be trafficked here in the first place. Unless you hate children, you wait until they are here to arrest the small fish traffickers so that your "numbers" look good.

Federal prosecuters sure, but state prosecutors?

That's up to the states.

I want to call you a moron , BUT I'm not calling you a moron.

you are a person and I respect you.

But there is a simple flaw in your Graphs and statistics here my friend , If you will take notice the Obama statistics are based off of his total 8 years as President while Trumps are only totaled from 4 years so far.

It troubles me that I have to point that out.

Good point, he did almost as much in 4 years, as obama did in 8. I would call that a win.
