1910: The United States Congress passes the Mann Act, which prohibits interstate transport of females for "immoral purposes." While it was intended to target prostitution and human trafficking, the ambiguous language would be used to selectively prosecute people for years to come. It was later amended by Congress in 1978 and again in 1986 to apply only to transport for the purpose of prostitution or illegal sexual acts.
