There have been a number of federal court cases involving the issue of human trafficking: mostly with the district and circuit courts.
The following Acts enable the United States to combat human trafficking both domestically and internationally. The Acts also established the Government Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (GTIP) and the President's Interagency Task Force to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons to assist with the coordination of anti-trafficking efforts.
Within the U.S. Department of State is the Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (OMCTP). The OMCTP conducts reports on countries around the world. Within the Trafficking in Persons Reports are countries' evaluations. These evaluations are organized alphabetically and include recommendations to that specific country as well as prosecution, protection, and prevention summaries. The Trafficking in Persons Reports categorize countries by tiers.
