Advocates trying to stop sex trafficking in Oregon have a new battle on their hands. Right now, the Oregon Center for Christian Values says Oregon is the only state in the nation that has made it unconstitutional for municipalities to prohibit porn shops from locating near schools and churches. That has created a feeding ground for sex traffickers. “The sex trafficking issue has really exploded in Oregon. Part of the reason is that Oregon has some of the weakest laws in the country in dealing with sex trafficking and under age prostitution.” Shoshone Tomas-Sweet of the Oregon Center for Christian Values says the Department of Human Services receives more than 250 calls per month on sexual abuse complaints. Tomas-Sweet says Senate Joint Resolution 28 would allow Oregonians to vote on changing the constitution to allow cities and counties to restrict the location of porn shops. Another law would allow the courts to confiscate cell phones and computers of men convicted of trafficking humans. Another bill would impose a minimum prison term of ten years for people convicted of trafficking.
