Will the U.S. Attorney General enforce sexual exploitation laws?

Request that the Senate Judiciary Committee ask U.S. Attorney General Nominee William P. Barr if he will Aggressively Enforce Child Exploitation Laws

Confirmation Hearing is Scheduled for 
January 15-16


It is imperative that we ask our new U.S. Attorney General nominee if he will stand behind President Trump's 2016 promise to aggressively enforce existing federal laws and advance public policies designed to prevent the sexual exploitation of children online. EIE's Children's Internet Safety Presidential Pledge, signed by then candidate Trump in 2016, called for the commitment to appoint an Attorney General who would vigorously carry out these laws, and this is where WE NEED YOUR HELP to make sure our children are protected!

Key areas that the committee must address with the AG nominee include his commitment to the enforcement of the federal obscenity, child pornography, sexual predation and sex trafficking laws, and making these laws a top priority.

By CLICKING HERE, you will have the opportunity to submit the below statement to the staff of members of the Senate Judiciary Committee (in both the Majority and the Minority) including the press secretary and chief of staff of the Judiciary Chair (Sen. Lindsey Graham) and the Ranking Member (Sen. Diane Feinstein) and others.
To the Members of The Senate Judiciary Committee: 

I am writing to ask you to please ask the following questions of Attorney General Nominee William P. Barr during his confirmation hearing as I believe his commitment to these issues is essential in protecting our nation's children in the digital world. President Trump signed the bi-partisan Children's Internet Safety Presidential Pledge promising to appoint an A.G to enforce all the federals laws designed to prevent the sexual exploitation of children and youth in the Digital Age. Therefore, if confirmed:

  • Will you aggressively enforce the existing federal obscenity laws, child pornography laws, sexual predation laws and the sex trafficking laws?
  • Research substantiates that online pornography is a growing health crisis that must be addressed and reversed. What strategies would you implement to deal with the proliferation of prosecutable pornography (obscenity) which has been allowed to flourish online due to the failure of past administrations to enforce the existing federal obscenity laws?
  • How will you work with Congress and the White House to ensure law enforcement and intelligence agencies have the necessary tools, resources and support they need to investigate and prosecute child sexual exploitation, obscenity and child pornography and be of sufficient magnitude to effectively deter illegal activity on the Internet?

Thanks so much for taking the time to TAKE ACTION and help our efforts do defend child dignity in the digital world!
