U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) released the following statement after his Debt Bondage Repair Act, which protects victims of human trafficking as they regain their financial freedom and rebuild their lives, was signed into law:

"Financial exploitation and forcing victims to work to pay off "debts' are revolting facets of human trafficking," said Sen. Cornyn. "This legislation will ensure that debt accrued while being trafficked cannot continue to damage victims' financial reputation long after the abuse has ended."
