It Crosses Borders

Every day I receive an update. A snapshot. What's happening around the world in trafficking.

This morning I read an article regarding the increase Virginia is starting to see in human trafficking because DC and Maryland have started cracking down on the issue.

This article shares the opinion that Virginia is a bit behind the curve and needs to catch up.

Law enforcement doesn't know what to look for in regard to trafficking victims. An influx of immigrants means people afraid and looking to protect themselves. Traffickers love that situation - they come up with all means of coercion.

The good side to this is Virginia recognizes it has a problem and is looking at what it can do to combat trafficking.
