Christine Grumm, the President of the Women’s Funding Network, believes that “web-order brides” are “marrying up”, and apparently doesn’t seem to have any problem with foreign women “using” American men. Her only concern apparently is that the men that they are exploiting might actually abuse these “users”. If you don’t believe it, then read the following Internet post that she made:
International Marriage Broker Regulation Act October 23, 2005 8:56 AM
Human Trafficking is finally getting the attention it deserves - in Congress.
Many women are so desperate to leave their countries, they are willing to use marriage brokers in the hopes of "marrying up" into a better life - and wind up caught in a ring of prostitution, slave trade and trafficking.
Right now, H.R. 3657, The International Marriage Broker Regulation Act (IMBRA), is being debated in Congress.
The bill helps protect women from abusive men and unscruplous international marriage brokers - and we can help ensure the bill becomes a law.
