The Senate Caucus to End Human Trafficking is using images of the child migrant situation to try to appeal to lawmakers.  

The caucus teamed up with the Alliance to End Slavery and Trafficking and the Too Young to Wed nonprofit to sponsor a photography exhibit running from Tuesday through Friday, entitled "Children Don't Migrate, They Flee." “Human trafficking is one of the most critical human rights challenges of our time and we must work to raise awareness and protect the vulnerable among us, which too often means children,” Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, told HOH about the exhibit.
