Living in the United States can shield you from some of uglier problems in the world, like human trafficking. That is why the President made January Human Trafficking Awareness month.
The truth about this problem is that it does happen here in the U.S. It is a business worth $32 billion that sees most trafficked victims forced into the sex trade. Around 66 percent of the victims are women and young girls.
Police often end up arresting trafficked victims and states do little to bring justice to them.
The pornography industry is where many trafficked victims end up. And watching pornography supports the trafficking. Other victims work at “massage parlors” against their will.
In the U.S., the annual Super Bowl is the largest congregation of sex trafficking victims. Their handlers bring them to the host city to work.
