Podcast: How to Curb Sex Trafficking in the U.S.

Around 2 p.m. every day, some men will use their corporate computers to make an appointment to have sex with a minor—and many of those appointments will occur on corporate property. Businesses, says Geoff Rogers, CEO and co-founder of the U.S. Institute Against Human Trafficking, are among the organizations that may seem to have no connection to sex trafficking—but can play a role in ending it in the United States, where thousands of children, many originally in the foster care system, are now victims of sex trafficking. Plus: We discuss President Donald Trump’s push for Bible literacy classes in public schools.

We also cover these stories:

  • The Congressional Budget Office reports the shutdown cost a total of $3 billion in foregone economic activity that won’t be recovered.
  • Sens. Chuck Grassley, R- Iowa, and Richard  Blumenthal, D-Conn., introduced a bill that would require Congress and the public receive a report when a special counsel investigation is over or if the special counsel is fired or resigns.
  • The Midwest is about to be hit with a record-breaking cold snap.
