Human trafficking is the transportation of people against their will, by means of deception or kidnapping. These victims are enslaved to work without freedom or pay. Moreover, many girls and women are forced into prostitution. According to a recent United Nations’ report, 600,000 to 800,000 people are trafficked annually across international borders. It is estimated that 70 percent of trafficking victims are female. The U.S. State Department estimates that more than 20,000 Mexicans are trafficked into the U.S. every year. Human trafficking is second only to drug trafficking as the most lucrative crime in Mexico. To learn more about human trafficking, go to our external website: http://www.stopmoderndayslavery.org.
