What is Human Trafficking?
According to the U.S. Department Of Homeland Security human trafficking uses force, fraud, or coercion to obtain labor or commercial sex act. It can also be broken down into its roots or simplified as the trade of humans for gain or profit. It can easily be compared to the modern day version of indentured servitude or slavery.
Who can be trafficked?
People of all races, genders, religions, beliefs, and creeds can become victims of trafficking. There are several types of trafficking that people can find themselves in.
Difficulties With Victims
One of the difficulties in the United States with people that are victims of being trafficked in cooperation. Some victims fear deportation, abuse from their captors, their family's safety, financial problems, and more.
It is sometimes difficult to get victims to cooperate in investigations due to a multitude of reasons. Sometimes they fear the authorities and are apprehensive in cooperating in their investigations. It can take only one person to change that through kindness, support, or other means to change the victims stance. With a victim's cooperation it becomes easier to investigate or legally pursue those that have trafficked them.
