Human trafficking is a real and frightening issue in the United States. It is a crime that forcefully exploits women, men, and children. Human trafficking involves transporting a person into a situation of exploitation, which can include forced labor, marriage, or prostitution. The term “exploitation” in this sense, is commonly referred to as “modern slavery”.
At this time, it is estimated that there are 20 to 40 million human trafficking victims internationally. According to ACLU, The U.S. Department of State estimates that 14,500 to 17,500 people are trafficked into the United States each year.
