“Judiciary Committee Democrats just unanimously REJECTED Rep. Roy’s amendment to increase penalties for all child sex trafficking offenses,” Rep. Chip Roy’s Press Office tweeted.

“It defies all belief, all common sense, that you would say that someone who traffics a child in the sex industry — actually puts a child into that environment, or that child sexually abused — that individual should not have a minimum sentence of 15 years?” Rep. Chip Roy stated.

‘Amendment to the Amendment in the Nature of a Substitute to H.R. 7566‘ would strike “for any term of years not less than 15 or for life” and inserting “for any term of years not less than 20 or for life.”
