10/28/2013--Introduced. Fraudulent Overseas Recruitment and Trafficking Elimination Act of 2013 - Amends the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 to require the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Department of State to incorporate anti-trafficking and anti-slavery priorities into other aspects of foreign assistance to ensure that assistance programs do not contribute to vulnerability to, or the prevalence of, human trafficking and slavery.

The Fraudulent Overseas Recruitment and Trafficking Elimination Act of 2013 (H.R. 3344) seeks to ensure that US foreign assistance does not inadvertently produce negative effects on human trafficking globally. Specifically, H.R. 3344 amends the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 to require the integration of anti-trafficking priorities in the foreign assistance programs at the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Department of State. The bill directs the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Labor to coordinate on collecting and maintaining information on trafficking persons for use in potential enforcement actions.
