CA Propositions: NO on 35

It's going to be tough to make an argument against Proposition 35, which imposes stiff criminal penalties on those convicted of "human trafficking," but here goes:  Human trafficking is a federal offense, prosecuted by federal authorities in federal courts.  Prop. 35 only muddies the waters in such prosecutions, and it's clearly just another over-reach by California's law-and-order extremists.  In particular, prosecutions of human traffickers are often "multi-jurisdictional," which is why they are best left to the federal government.  

Make no mistake, "human-trafficking" crimes like forced prostitution and exploitation of minors are already against California law, so in addition to complicating federal prosecutions, Prop. 35 is an unnecessary redundancy.

Vote NO on Proposition 35.
