Issue: Human Trafficking
Human trafficking is the third largest criminal industry
in the world. The trafficking of persons for sexual
exploitation or forced labor is a grievous violation of the dignity
of the human person and is a form of modern day slavery. Trafficking
is one of the most difficult crimes to prosecute and most insidious
problem to solve.
