Acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Chad Wolf established a new division within his division called the Center for Countering Human Trafficking.

On Tuesday, Wolf said the center will investigate cases of human smuggling, collect data and intelligence as well as well provide victim support. This comes as federal authorities continue nationwide anti-crime efforts dubbed ‘Operation Rise‘ and ‘Operation Legend.’

Wolf also noted the DHS will look into cases of domestic servitude, sexual exploitation and forced labor of foreign persons on U.S. soil.

“No more to the victimization of innocent people through forced labor, no more to the gross abuse of human rights and dignity resulting from this despicable crime,” stated the secretary. “The launch of the DHS Center for Countering Human Trafficking represents the investment of resources, attention, and time by this administration to combat and dismantle all forms of human trafficking.”

The DHS is now ramping up efforts to break-up circles of illegal immigration and investigate possible commercial and political interests in that process.
