The prevalence of human trafficking, forced labor, and child sexual exploitation throughout the world is an urgent humanitarian issue with direct and far-reaching consequences on the United States. Within the United States, human trafficking and child sexual exploitation are grossly prevalent and affect diverse communities. These crimes threaten our physical and virtual borders, our immigration and customs systems, our prosperity, our national security, and are a direct attack on Americans’ personal safety and our country’s public safety. The International Labor Organization estimates that as of 2016 over 40 million people were victims of human trafficking around the world, 10 million of whom were children. Despite efforts by the United States, and steadfast and dedicated individuals and organizations, exploitation of the less powerful continues. This book looks at the long-term approach for combating these crimes.
