Guam - Guam Attorney General Leonardo Rapadas joins more than 40 other attorneys general from across the country in sending a letter to the legal counsel of Backpage.com about the ongoing failure of the Internet advertising company to effectively limit prostitution and sexual trafficking activity on its website. 

The attorneys general are all concerned about human trafficking, especially the trafficking of minors. AG Rapadas see this collaboration with other attorneys general throughout the United States as a necessary measure to combat human trafficking both nationally and regionally since the internet knows no boundaries and crosses all borders.
