During the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade it was all okay, but now enslaving children is considered "hard-hearted and cruel in the name of making money". We just got out of that slavery bullshit and just when you thought it all was over, now comes this...It’s sad but true: here in this country, people are being bought, sold, and smuggled like modern-day slaves. Trapped in lives of misery, they are beaten, starved, forced to work as prostitutes or to take grueling jobs as migrant, domestic, restaurant, or factory workers with little or no pay.
Why is there such a giant and profit market for sex crimes, human trafficking and child prostitution? Why is it just now a priority in programs in the United States?
Human trafficking is one of the fastest growing criminal industries in the world. People profit from the control and exploitation of others and it facilitates the illegal movement of immigrants across borders and funding of organized crime.
Where are they operating: organized crime while others act alone at truck stops, motels, casinos and other places where they can be forced to work as prostitutes. Children who are most vulnerable to being exploited for sex crimes are between 13 and 16 years old without strong ties to family members.
Coerced or deceived, is paying to use a child just as bad as the ones selling them? Their families, are they worthy of having them back and will they help with recovery? How can anyone be so hard-hearted and cruel in the name of making money?
