In the arlier years pre 2000 it was a subject that wasn’t widely known and due to this law enforcement and goverment officials treated the victim as a criminal due to the actions of prostitution and possession of false ID’s. However, after 2000 we can agree that these victims ought not be liable to such charges because this is happening out of their will. These vicitims are almost a vessel with a means to an end in the eyes of the actual criminal the trafficker. I was surprised to find out some victims had charges pressed on them by the state and that impacted their ability to work and obtain housing. It is good to see that all 50 states now have lasws that criminal human trafficking and as time goes by there are new laws and services to combat this

Although people want to blame the authorities because they are not doing enough to stem the flow of human trafficking, the traffickers are to blame for the buying and selling of people. In the events that when a victim is targeted there is not much they can do once they are taken, there is a rare chance that a victim will get away after they are sold
Human smuggling is a type of illegal immigration in which an agent is paid to help a person cross the border clandestinely. Human trafficking is the exploitation of unwillingly or unwitting people through force, coercion, threat, or deception. (Schmalleger; Pg. 380) The difference between the two, is that human smuggling the party/individual is aware and willing to cross the border, and in human trafficking the party/individual is unaware or unwilling to cross the border. It pretty sad to think that this issue is easily over looked every day, but I think the best way to help stop the issue is make people more aware of the issue.

The most commonly recognized form is trafficking for sexual exploitation, however it also can be seen in the form of forced labor which is not as frequently detected or reported. Human trafficking is defined as “a form of modern-day slavery where people profit from the control and exploitation of others.” (Polaris) Everyday, susceptible victims are falling prey to the manipulation and false sense of trust developed by traffickers and used as objects to reach a profit or goal, which when not reached often results in physical abuse and threats aimed towards the victims. Out of the total reported cases, 79% relate in someway to sexual abuse or illegal forced prostitution, which primarily affects women and young girls. The other 18% accounts for forced labor cases, where the workers are not paid and are often working in harsh or inhumane conditions.
There is not much information about males being victims of trafficking. Most victims share the common characteristics listed below: Little to no education Unemployment/Limited employment Economic struggle Inequality (social and economic) Anyone can be a victim and none of those characteristics are necessarily required because the most common method of trafficking is persuasion.

There are many organizations for selling humans like you or your loved ones.

While researching this topic it was found to be very controversial. Prostitution is a widely recognized topic, anyone and anywhere can get involved into this line of work with just one thing, themselves. Do the men, women and children really have a choice whether or not they want to use their bodies to earn a living? Or are they forced by outside influences that make them have no other choice.

Victims, mostly females are lured into a job interview, or a promising relationship with a man, and then sold off into sex slavery. The victim is often held captive and unable to have any freedom or say in what they do; it is modern day slavery. One of the main reasons this happens is because prostitution is illegal virtually everywhere in the U.S, and crooks and corrupt minded people see the money opportunity available with prostitution, however, it must be done in an illegal way. Sex slavery and human trafficking would be significantly reduced if prostitution was legal, it would not be completely obliterated, however it would not be as common. Prostitution itself being legal, would bring in billions of dollars itself, so the corrupt people who pay for the trafficking, would start to lose business everywhere because legal brothels would be making so much
The United States prides itself in being “the land of the free” and the “land of opportunity,” yet this is not the case for the many victims of sex trafficking that reside in the U.S. Despite relatively strict legislation and visible media exposure of this crime against humanity, the United States continues to be a destination point for many victims of sex trafficking. Many Americans are surprised that this could happen here despite laws and organizations promoting awareness. A combination of American cultural attitudes toward the sex industry, both positive and negative, the ineffective enforcement of laws, and the high profitability for organized criminals are responsible for the persistence of sex trafficking to the United States.
