It's called the "Jurists United to Stop Trafficking Imitation Child Exploitation Act of 2019", and U.S. Senator John Kennedy has filed this legislation to try to combat child sexual exploitation.

Sex dolls; that's what Kennedy is aiming to stop the importation of.

Kennedy says,

"As sick as it is, these anatomically correct dolls are made to look like young children. They're disgusting. They are clearly a training kit for pedophiles. The United Kingdom has banned the importation of these dolls, but the United States currently has no law prohibiting them. We need to act swiftly to ban them."

Kennedy started working on the legislation after getting information from Louisiana's Attorney General Jeff Landry that they were finding these types of dolls while investigating people accused of child sex abuse.

AG Landry says,

"Protecting children is critical to a successful society. As someone on the front lines in the battle against child predators, I appreciate this legislation and know it will help make our communities safer. I hope Congress swiftly passes this much-needed public safety measure by Senator Kennedy and Representative Duncan."

Unbelievably, law enforcement says the dolls "can be programmed to mimic the reactions of rape victims, allowing predators to practice sick behavior."

And if you think this is too crazy to be believed, well law enforcement reports such products were found by Amazon on their website being sold by third-party vendors. Amazon has worked to halt these types of sales.

Now if law enforcement can get something on the books, then companies can have more ammunition in being able to fight these kins of things.

So what will the "Jurists United to Stop Trafficking Imitation Child Exploitation Act of 2019" do?

If this law passes, then the person would face up to five years in prison, but more time, up to ten years, if they are repeat offenders.

Kennedy says that Representative Jeff Duncan will be filing the bill in the U.S. House.

Duncan says,

"I want to applaud Senator Kennedy for introducing this important, common-sense legislation. The JUSTICE Act will provide an important tool for law enforcement as they crack down on sex traffickers. I look forward to working with Senator Kennedy, my friend Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, and hopefully House Democrats as we push this common-sense bill through to the President's desk."

We will monitor the progress of this effort.
