Our Children's Internet Safety Presidential Pledge is Making Headline News

EIE Has the Attention of the U.S. Attorney General, Congress, and the National Media on the Issue of Obscenity Enforcement!

EIE's bi-partisan “Children’s Internet Safety Presidential Pledge,” signed by both President Donald Trump and supported by Secretary Hillary Clinton during the 2016 Presidential election, called for the aggressive enforcement of obscene pornography which is not protected speech under the 1st Amendment. 

Current law makes it a crime to produce and distribute hard-core pornography, however, since 1994, children and adults alike have been fed a steady diet of this content, which is freely available online. Why? Because the laws have not been enforced except for a brief time under General Ashcroft.

Earlier this month, four Congressman sent a letter to Attorney General Barr calling on him to crack down on obscene pornography and making its prosecution a priority, citing President Trump's commitment made by signing the Pledge. Reports say the the letter has arrived at Barr's office and it is being reviewed.

Prosecuting the producers and distributors of obscene pornography is exactly what Enough Is Enough® has been asking the Department of Justice to prioritize for the past two decades since the Internet opened the gateways for kids to instant and easy access to hard-core, extreme pornography. The ties between obscene porn, sex trafficking and child sex abuse images have since been made abundantly clear.
