The United States is again ranked as one of the worst countries in the world for human trafficking. According to a recently released report by the State Department, the top three nations of origin for victims of human trafficking in 2018 were the United States, Mexico and the Philippines.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivered the Trafficking in Persons report, which is created annually by the State Department to document human trafficking in the year prior, and highlighted the growing focus that government agencies and nonprofit organizations have dedicated to stopping human trafficking.
The Department of Justice provided more than $31 million for 45 victim service providers that offered services to trafficking survivors across the country. It was a demonstrable increase; the DOJ only provided $16 million to 18 organizations in 2017, according to the report.
Over the last two months, Fox News has investigated human trafficking.
If there’s one takeaway from our reporting, it’s that the industry is fueled by an unceasing demand.
I don’t understand why slaving has been relabelled as “human trafficking”. What is the penalty for enslaving someone else? How is this different than being wage slaves for the government other than this is legal. But then the other illegal slavery is not being punished; so why does the government give tacit approval for this?
Immorality and a two-tiered justice system have destroyed our country.
