to the United States Central Intelligence Agency, 50,000 people
are sent to America as a sex slave, domestic, garment, and agricultural
slave. In the year of 2005 there was a campaign about trafficking
crimes and victims in the United States by the United State’s
Government. Prostitution is an offense according to the Uniform
Code of Military Justice. The Department of Defense (DOD) has
a program cautioning people about trafficking because they want
to catch attention from the criminals and human consequences about
trafficking. Anyone and everyone who is in the military or apart
of the Department of Defense have to attend to the program by
the end of the year (2006). Improvement is still needed on trafficking
for the borders of the United States. More effort should be put
forth to make sure that the trafficking victims have time so that
they can exchange their ideas and opinions. There are victim protection
services for the United States citizens who are trafficked victims.
It is mainly for the citizens in the United States that are under
18 and it should be more across country then just in the United
slavery exists throughout the world and it has become an issue
that needs to be taking care of because every year we are loosing
more children to slavery. Their own parents because of the lack
of money and recourses to survive are selling most of these children.
If not sold then the children themselves are being tricked into
servitudes. If not in this two ways then they are being kidnapped
and being obligated to do things against their will.
Just in Asia alone 1 million of people are being submitted into
prostitution. Most of these children’s parents don’t
have enough money to live because they get paid under $1 a day.
The only outlet they have is to sell their one child who is most
strong and capable to do more work for a couple of thousand dollars.
Most of these children are girl and these girls are put to prostitution.
One girl’s virginity can be sold for as much as three thousand
five hundred dollars.
Going around the world there is also slavery occurring in South
America. Here there is mostly girl slaver going on. Most of these
kids are being told to beg in corners of grocery stores and another
number of places. But like in Asia, here too sexual slaves are
increasing each year. A high level issue in South America is the
trafficking of babies and children. These kids are being sold
to families that are not able to have children of their own and
therefore buy a baby again for a couple of thousand dollars.
