Governator Takes On Human Trafficking

At the XXVI Annual Border Governors Conference (BGC), California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger invited stronger cooperation among the Border States to combat human trafficking across the US-Mexico border.

“The practice of trafficking human beings is modern-day slavery and it should not be tolerated by any society,” Governor Schwarzenegger said. “California has a proud legacy of offering protection and safety to the victims of such horrific crimes and I am pleased that the Border States are coming together at this year’s conference to collaborate on solutions to this crime that will work on both sides of the border.”

The forum featured experts from the US and Mexico, including leaders in the fields of law enforcement, international human rights, victim assistance and human trafficking survivors who will discuss the impact human trafficking has had on the border region and look at collaborative solutions to fight it.
