Reasons This Atrocity Persists
The United Nations and the United States have described trafficking in humans as modern day slavery and the most rapidly growing organized criminal activity in the world. When it comes to gross revenues, modern slavery is second only to the trafficking of illegal drugs. For the most part, trafficking goes unnoticed and is seldom investigated or prosecuted. For all of these reasons, it flourishes.
