Human Trafficking

Business is a Boomin'!!!

What is Human Trafficking?

Human trafficking is defined as "the illegal trade of human beings for sexual exploitation or forced labor. Mostly women and children are involved with being kidnapped and traded and mostly men are involved with the trading part. However, these roles have been seen to be switched before.

What's Being Done To Stop This?

Most governments consider human trafficking to be a major concern and are trying to do all they can to stop the illegal transfer of human beings. Many governments, such as the United States and France, have even set up entire divisions or organizations whose sole purpose is to figure out a way to take down or stop these human traffickers. However, the traffickers are not only talented at putting women and children into prostitution and slavery. They are also well known for how well they can disappear. For example, look at Long Island, New York. Out of all the people that have been abducted there, only one woman has been freed from slavery and no arrests have been made. How do you like those odds?
