Quotes

A lot of [them] don't know where to go, because they're homeless or immigrants a lot of the time. And if they do tell the police they're seen as prostitutes, and they're often sent back to Mexico or wherever they're from. And then they're in the same situation that forced them into trafficking in the first place."
"The reality is that young people today have easier access to marijuana than to alcohol and tobacco. That should be the core of the conversation right now" he said
