“I truly believe that truckers can be one of our greatest assets in the fight against human trafficking,” Garcia said. “We have almost 200K truck drivers in the state of Texas that can be our eyes and ears on the road, and in places like motels, and truck stops, and restaurants, where victims are being exploited everyday.”
