Land, others warn Bush: Get Department of Justice in line on human trafficking bill

[Baptist Press] 14 Aug 2008--Southern Baptist ethics leader Richard Land has joined in warning President Bush his own Department of Justice is threatening to tarnish his legacy on combating human trafficking.

The president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission and 13 others told Bush in a letter that the Department of Justice (DOJ) "is out of step with your bold stance against slavery and human trafficking." They called for Bush to bring the department into compliance with his policy goals and urged the president to provide unwavering support to legislation opposed by the department.
