I have to confess ... I always think of sex trafficking as occurring "over there" in Malaysia and other places. But it's right here in our back yard, too.
It shouldn't come as a surprise, really. Any time you have a culture that puts emphasis on money and power, you will have abuses including exploitation of the less fortunate. It is a wonder this isn't a much bigger problem here in the states than it is. Of course, it is so underground that probably no one has any idea just how big of a problem it is.
This is, I am sure, linked in some ways to the Tijuana prostitution issue I wrote about a week or so ago.
I know ... I know. Real cheery subjects. Sorry.
