Volume 1 Issue 22

State Representative Janel Brandtjen:

Human Trafficking Bill AB 489:

It is no secret that Wisconsin and the Milwaukee area has become a hotspot for child prostitution or as it is more appropriately called "human trafficking". The publication "The Guardian" has declared Milwaukee the "Harvard of pimping school". The FBI recognizes Wisconsin as a hub for human trafficking. One of things that helps to make Wisconsin attractive to human traffickers is that the laws requiring healthcare providers to report the abuse of children are unclear at best. I have introduced a bill that would close any loopholes. We are hoping for a public hearing on the bill in early December.  See the bill here.

Sanctuary City Bill AB 492:

Regardless of which package of immigration reforms we adopt in the United States, the one central theme that must prevail is we are a country based on the rule of law.  Those laws are put in place by elected officials and serve a number of purposes including property rights and of course, public safety. No city, town or county has the right to ignore federal immigration law in order to provide sanctuary for illegal aliens. State Representive Dave Murphy and myself have authored a bill that would allow a resident of Wisconsin to sue any political subdivision that does not follow federal immigration law. See the bill here.

CORRECTION: In last week's Update I stated that Wisconsin charges $60 per year to register a vehicle.  It is $75 per year and not $60. I apologize for any inconvenience.

God Bless Wisconsin!
