Legislation introduced by Congressman Chris Smith on Thursday will require that U.S. government travel business be prioritized to hotels that have strong anti-human trafficking policies in place.
“U.S. government travelers should be staying at hotels that are part of the solution to human trafficking, not part of the problem,” Smith said. “Six of the 10 major hotels chains in the world have taken the initiative to train their staff to recognize and report when human traffickers use their hotels for crime. These are the hotels that deserve U.S. government business.”Art Gallagher | Filed under: Chris Smith, Human Rights, Human Trafficking, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, News | Tags: Congressman Chris Smith, hotel industry, Human Trafficking, Monmouth County News, New Jersey | 2 Comments »
