Indianapolis June 7, 2023 – The National Police Association (NPA) has endorsed U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn’s (R-Tenn.) introduction of the End Child Trafficking Now Act, which would require a DNA test to determine the relationship between illegal aliens coming across the border and any accompanying children.

The End Child Trafficking Now Act would:

  • Require the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to deport illegal aliens if they refuse a DNA test
  • Mandate a maximum ten-year sentence for all illegal alien adults who fabricate family ties or guardianship over a minor
  • Criminalize “child recycling,” or when the same child is used repeatedly to gain entry through illegal aliens who are neither relatives nor legal guardians
  • Require the Health and Human Services (HHS) to process the child as an unaccompanied minor if family ties or legal guardianship cannot be proven with the accompanying adult

Sgt. Betsy Brantner Smith, Spokesman, National Police Association, stated: “At the center of the illegal immigration debate should be the horrific physical and sexual abuse of children, often at the hands of unrelated adults. Mandatory DNA testing and significant penalties for adults refusing to comply would help stop the incredible heartbreak of the criminal “recycling” of children. Very often these abused minors end up living a life of sex trafficking, drug abuse and worse, and the National Police Association strongly encourages the support and passage of the “End Child Sex Trafficking Now Act.”
