The Slave Trade In The United States

Don’t think it’s NOT going on here…

A great deal of the news floating around the internet is indeed coming from third world countries. The vast majority spring from the poorest parts of our world. But we are not immune from the scourge of slavery here in the U.S. We need to make sure, as we turn our eyes to other countries, we don’t overlook our own injustices.

A quote from Jamie Dean’s report:

“A well-educated, 29-year-old Mexican woman paid an immigrant smuggler to bring her illegally to the United States, where she hoped to find better paying work and send money home to relatives. Instead, when she arrived at the border, smugglers transported her to North Carolina, placed her directly in a brothel, and forced her into prostitution.”
