Trafficking children, part 2
***Trigger Warning*** Part 2 of 2
Human trafficking is reported to be a $150 billion a year industry that is second only to drug trafficking and equal to arms trafficking, according to the State Department.
The fastest growing illegal enterprise in the world, human trafficking encompasses both labor and sex trafficking and affects victims of all ages, races and religions.
Victims are most often hiding in plain sight, but under the influence of their traffickers that also come in every demographic, which makes them difficult to spot.
“There’s no profile for a trafficker. There’s absolutely no profile for a trafficker. It comes in all shapes, sizes, religions,” said Dr. Robyn Eubank, director of psychological services at the Youth Opportunity Center.
