Human Trafficking Prevention Event - 1/29/2014. (Transcript Below)

Cindy McCain: I want to thank the state of New Jersey, and I want to thank them for being strong on this, but more importantly, looking into the long term on this like I said. Arizona believes the same way. It is a long-term issue. It's not just the Super Bowl. It's not just a large event. It's every day. So, we face the element out there of educating people, making sure that they understand that this is not prostitution. These are victims, and more importantly making sure that they understand that we have to do something, not only to run the traffickers out first and foremost, but to take care of our victims in the long run. Thank you all for being here and for participating in this. This is an important issue and your interest means a lot to us. It really does. The one person that inspired me long term on this and the one person that I had always wanted to meet on this issue is the next person I'm going to introduce, and that is Senator Chiesa. Very strong on this issue, as you know, a pioneer in terms of getting people to understand it, to listen to it, and more importantly someone who's in it for the long haul. I'm just proud to call him my friend, so with that I'd like to introduce to you Senator Chiesa.

Senator Jeff Chiesa...

Lexie Smith...

Governor Chris Christie: I'm glad all of you are here to hear that, and so am I. Unfortunately for those of us who have worked on these cases, that's not the first time we've heard a story like that, but every time you hear it, you can't imagine the torment and the pain that someone like Lexie has gone through in her life. And it's extraordinarily courageous for her to be out here fighting this fight now and she's living the words that she's spoken. She's not going to let this define her. More importantly, she's going to try to do everything she can to make sure it doesn't happen to someone else, and that's pretty extraordinary. Personally, I think we can give her another round of applause. She deserves it. In the state of New Jersey, there is one person who is primarily responsible for law enforcement and who, despite what anyone else may claim this weekend, this guy's working. This is a working weekend for the Attorney General. The idea of having this type of event in our state means that the person who's in charge of law enforcement in this state needs to continue to be vigilant right through until everyone who's come here to come and enjoy the game, leaves here, and hopefully leaves here safely, and happy. I'm confident that we have the right person in that position...

Attorney General John Hoffman...
