US Senate unanimously passes anti-trafficking bill

US Senator John Cornyn speaks to members of the media on March 25, 2014 at the Capitol in Washington, DCThe US Senate unanimously passed legislation Wednesday aimed at stopping human trafficking, after lawmakers overcame a dispute about the measure’s abortion language that prompted weeks of gridlock. The partisan standoff had delayed a confirmation vote on President Barack Obama’s attorney general nominee, federal prosecutor Loretta Lynch. Republican bill sponsor Senator John Cornyn said the act provides crucial assistance for sex-trafficking victims, whom he described as girls typically between 12 and 14 years old. The unanimous vote marks a major bipartisan victory for the Senate, which had plunged into partisan feuding last month over abortion language in the bill.
