Proposal could turn FBI into a vice squad

The battle against trafficking is a major priority for the Bush administration, which is attacking the problem with 10 federal agencies reporting to a Cabinet-level task force chaired by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. But there has been heated debate – even among the dozens of organizations fighting trafficking in the United States – over whether prostitutes should be considered trafficking victims.

Considering all prostitutes as “trafficking victims” undermines the agency of any person working as a prostitute and belittles the experience of those sold into forced labor, including domestic, agricultural, and sexual servitude.
