“The number of prosecutions for child sex trafficking has significantly declined during the Trump Administration, after climbing steadily during the Obama years,” according to a report released Oct. 26 by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. “Prosecutions reached a peak of 273 and 277 in FY 2016 and FY 2017, respectively. Since then, the number of cases dipped to 221 in FY 2018, and then continued to decline to less than 200 in FYs 2019 and 2020.”
