Houston is ground zero for human trafficking in the United States and for that reason, the American Jewish Committee (AJC) Bridging America Task Force will present its third immigration summit on March 18 at 8 am at Rice University.  The Immigration Summit 3.0 - Human Trafficking, Security and Immigration Reform will focus on human trafficking and help people understand how comprehensive immigration reform – now pending in Washington – would help to at least start to resolve the problem.  It certainly wouldn't make the problem go away, but if some of the people now forced to live in the shadows could come out into the light, law enforcement would have better tools at its disposal to root out much of the problem.

There will be a breakfast starting at 8am at Rice in the Rice Memorial Hall in the student center.  The program starts at 8:30 and will include Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia, Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, Global Diversity Manager for Delta Airlines Letty Ashworth, and a representative of the US House Homeland Security Committee.  There will also be a presentation from Rice University Sociologist Stephen Klineberg.
