Human Trafficking is the modern form of slavery with illegal smuggling & trading of people for forced labor or sexual exploitation...


Human Trafficking is officially defined as the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring, or receipt of persons by means of coercion, abduction, fraud, deception, or abuse of power of a position of vulnerability for the purpose of exploitation..


The illegal drug trade is the number one money maker..


The organized illegal drug trade by the Drug Cartel's & Street Gangs have turned Human Trafficking into the number two money maker..


During the years of the organized crime getting involved the Human Trafficking numbers have tripled..The numbers could be much larger because of the cases that are not reported & because of undocumented immigrants...


Those being trafficked include young children, teenagers, men & women & can be domestic citizens or foreign nationals..


Some of these children & youth being made into sex slaves were originally runaways...


Under Federal law it is a crime of any act of sex trafficking involving force, fraud, coercion, or in which the victim of sex trafficking is a child incapable of giving meaningful consent, or of trafficking which includes rape or kidnapping or which causes a death..


Federal agencies charging individuals with human trafficking over half the prosecutions were sex trafficking cases & the other half were labor trafficking cases..


About half of the sex slaves in the United States are forced into prostitution...


Sex trafficking is defined as the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for the purpose of a commercial sex act, in which a commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person forced to perform such an act is under the age of 18 years..


Once a kidnapping & trafficking occurs the victim often accepts their situation & limits efforts to escape their imprisonment...


People forced into human trafficking should be recognized as victims & not criminals...
