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.
