Foreign Aid: $50 million to fight slavery in 3rd World CountriesSubmitted by xcfreek58 on Mon, 01/07/2013 - 14:54
International Justice Mission (IJM) is advocating a bill that appropriates $50 million over 3 years to fight slavery and human trafficking in other countries that supposedly lack the resources to do it themselves. The problem is that this bill does not fulfill the role of government because it does not protect the rights of the people. It is not the business of the United States to police the world. Furthermore, we're broke. If we were to cut this spending, it would reduce our current yearly deficit by more than 1%.
Read more about the bill here on IJM's website.

International Justice Mission has recently made news because they receive support from the recent conference Passion 2013, which is put on every year by Louie Giglio and makes an effort to end human trafficking.
