All these people, these humans, innocent people just like everybody else, are steadily being forced into slavery, some right now. Is anybody aware that 3,827 people per day are being sold or kidnapped into slavery? Sex trafficking is one of the many forms of slavery still happening in America today. “Sex trafficking is a crime when women, men and/or children are forcefully involved in commercial sex acts. In the United States, any minor under the age of 18 engaged in commercial sex acts is automatically considered a victim of sex trafficking under the law.
Today, many people need organ donation to continue their life. It is so hard to get an organ so, people get their organ donation from black organ market. “The illegal trade in kidneys has risen to such a level that an estimated 10,000 black market operations involving purchased human organs now take place annually, or more than one an hour.” (Illegal kidney trade booms as new organ is 'sold every hour', 2012). Kidney organ is very important to our body. Organ trafficking occurs by kidnapping the people especially children.
The worst countries for human trafficking, Robert Grimmnick says "Among the people who are trafficked out of the country, 55 percent are adults, 26 percent are young girls, and 19 percent are young boys" (Grimmnick). It is not just young teenage girls that end up in this dreadful situation, Young men and adults, can as well. One of the ten countries would be Venezuela because usually the people they get from there are lured for high price jobs that they are offered. Some girls get tricked into sexual slavery. According to the article "Child Trafficking" on Soroptimist.org "Some are lured with offers of legitimate and legal work as shop assistants or waitresses, others are promised marriage, educational opportunities and a better life.
America’s mayors have come to a consensus that these weapons of mass destruction are destroying the nation’s communities, cities, and families. Nutter goes on to reveal some surprising information, stating that out of the average 100,000 people that are shot each year, over 30 percent end up dying, while only 10 percent were intentional homicides (Lane 2015). Every year approximately 18,000 children are shot, only further proving the school shooter epidemic our country faces. This sort of violence is nearly exclusive to urban areas, as cities make up 15 percent of the population but account for 39 percent gun related murders and 23 percent total homicides. Nutter is proposing a ban on assault weapons, quite similar to a 1994 ban that decreased total gun murders by 6.7 percent and the types of shootings they were most often used in, specifically ones with multiple victims and police officers as victims.
In the United States alone, more than 36 million people abuse illegal substances, however, most of these are not caused by the prescription of opioids. A drug abuse crisis is overtaking the U.S. Drug abuse kills over 200,000 people worldwide each year, although only .002 percent of these deaths are caused by the prescription of opioids. 117 million people suffer from a chronic illness, many of which need the prescription of opioids to function on a daily basis. Even though many people abuse them, doctors should not stop prescribing opioids because they are necessary for many people to function, most people who abuse them have had problems with other substances, and most opioid-related deaths do not come from doctor prescribed pills. First, they are necessary for many people to function.
This corruption is evidenced by many of these charges being drug related, despite both races using drugs at similar rates, in tandem with the fact that private prisons spend millions of dollars every year lobbying for harsher drug laws. Not only is the net effect of this unjust, it helps to create stereotypes against African Americans. With private prison counts more than doubling since the start of the 21st century, Americans must stand up to the injustice of current private prisons before the problems of persecution and oppression they create become
Human trafficking is the illegal transnational and international trade in people for the purpose of servitude. Human rights organizations and different people are calling it the modern form of slavery. People are trafficked for a number of reasons: prostitution, sexual exploitation, forced labor, slavery, organ harvesting, forced marriage, military service, and even selling babies to couples who can’t have children. In the U.S. alone, about 600,000-820,000 men, women and children are trafficked. About 70 percent of those victims are women and girls, and 50 percent are minors.
Have you ever seen this picture? This picture is a lot more than a poetic protest on media. It is the reality. In the 21st century, the average cost of a human is $90 globally. It’s sad but true; here in this world, people are forced into being slaves for a $150 billion criminal industry, a form of modern slavery: Human Trafficking.
Human trafficking is a worldwide problem and one of the most shameful crimes in existence, since it robs millions of people worldwide dignity. The traffickers trick women, men and children from every corner of the planet and subject them daily to situations of exploitation. Although the most well-known form of trafficking in persons is sexual exploitation, hundreds of thousands of victims are also trafficked for the purpose of forced labor, prostitution, or organ harvesting. Considered as modern slavery, trafficking in persons involves the purchase and sale of people, where the victim is owned by another individual. “Human trafficking is the third largest international crime industry (behind illegal drugs and arms trafficking).
Every 16 minutes, a new name is added to the transplatation watitinglist. This means 90 people will be added to the waiting list during a day. How many people die in the USA per day then? Just in the USA it dies over 6000 people per day, which means that if every person in the USA donated their organs, we wouldn’t have a waiting list to organ transplantation in 14 days. As an organ donor you have the possibility to choose to donate the organs or tissues as you specify or any needed organs.
One could see how supply side enforcement, prohibition of drugs, and mass incarceration have halted the reform of the criminal justice system. These externalities spill over into other public policy issues as well. Supply side enforcement spills into economic policy because billions of dollars are spent fighting a losing war, contributing to a larger deficit the U.S. ultimately has to deal with. The prohibition of drugs spills into health care policy. Nationally, 1 in 10 people addicted to drugs or alcohol do not receive treatment, according to a report from the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse.
In 2011 there were over 11 million Illegal immigrants living in the United States, because of illegal immigration millions of US citizens are losing jobs, money, and crimes have gone way up.

Illegal immigrants should not be allowed to enter this country and steal jobs from US citizens. The country as a whole loses money when illegal immigrants come and use public facilities, illegal immigrants also have caused crimes to skyrocket.

Health care fraud has been a growing matter for some time now. Health care fraud is a crime in which health care professionals willingly falsify financial transactions. In nursing homes, it is shown that “medicare payments to nursing homes have been at least 10 percent higher than the cost of care for 14 years in a row” (Pear, 2015). This shows evidence of nursing homes having more money then needed in order to care for patients. This 10% might not sound a lot but it significantly matters a lot.
