New Jersey lawmakers are considering legislation that would make traveling by baby difficult, according to reports.
The state’s governor, Phil Murphy, is expected to sign the bill, which is expected by the end of the week, the New Jersey Star-Ledger reports.
Murphy is also expected to propose a temporary travel ban for the state’s first class of non-immigrant visas and a temporary ban on all non-essential travel by U.S. citizens and permanent residents.
The proposed law is in response to a surge of child sex abuse cases in New Jersey, the state reports.
More than 2,000 children are believed to have been abused since September, the report says.
The state has already banned child care, and has barred U.N. humanitarian workers from entering the state.
