Cornyn: “We Need Six Brave Democrats”

In remarks on the Senate floor yesterday, I continued to push Democrats to reconsider their threatened filibuster of the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act.

Children are being abused and literally sexually assaulted while, apparently, some of our colleagues on the other side of the aisle have decided to try to make a political point.

To our colleagues who are filibustering this legislation, are you prepared to turn your back on the thousands of people living every day in bondage and who are desperately clinging to the hope that someone, someone will lend them a helping hand? Are you prepared to abandon these children and these other victims of human trafficking who deserve a roof over their head, someone to lean on, and somehow, some way to get a fresh start in life?

We need six brave Democrats, six brave Democrats to join all the Republicans on this side to keep hope alive for these victims of human trafficking. We need six Democrats who are willing to break away from the tyranny of their party's own leadership here in the Senate and do what they know is the right thing to do.

I hope they'll think long and hard before saying no to the abused children and the victims of human trafficking. That's what this is all about.
