The reality of Human Trafficking
Human trafficking has been a major issue in America and other countries for many years and still is today. Many females, mostly young, are kidnapped and taken away from their families and into this world of drug and violence. This paper will be a good source to inform those in the community of how serious sex trafficking is and give the reader a better understanding of how the process is followed through. After looking into the facts of human trafficking, things such as laws, government involvement, and overall funding to prevent this crime from occurring.
What is Trafficking?:
It is said that human trafficking is another form of slavery in another century. According to an article from Anti-Slavery International, “Trafficking involves recruitment, harboring or transporting people into a situation of exploitation through the use of violence, deception or coercion and forced to work against their will.” However, a person doesn't necessarily have to be transported in order for it to be considered trafficking. The article states, “Simply bringing them into exploitative conditions constitutes trafficking” (Anti-Slavery International).

It is this act and others that work towards preventing trafficking in adults and sex trafficking among the youth. Congress has also gone further by having services available to those who were victims of trafficking.
While there are many laws and restrictions against human trafficking, they have also outlawed many things that could possibly relate to trafficking. These include things such as luring someone, kidnapping, transport of someone to be sold as a slave, etc. The article states, “The details of the offense determine the punishment those convicted of these offenses may face.” However, the penalties ...
