The Truth is Alarming
Domestic Minor sex trafficking is today’s technical term for modern day slavery. Many Americans don’t realize that slavery is now one of the fastest growing criminal activities in the United States. The US Dept. of Justice now reports that every year over 250,000 children are at high risk of being drawn into the net of criminal sexual exploitation. In fact the United States now holds the distinction of being the second largest destination worldwide for women and child trafficking for the purposes of sex exploitation and slavery. Child sex trafficking is a world wide pandemic and is growing at an alarming rate in the United States.
In a recent hearing before the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security of The Committee On The Judiciary House Of Representatives testimonies were made that there are currently 100,000 American girls caught in the net of the sex slave trade industry.
