This powerful combination is driving the explosive spread of human trafficking, making it one of the most profitable criminal industries in the world.
Women and children have been victims of sex trafficking for thousands of years
In February of 2000, the United States spoke at a testimony before the Senate Committee concerning the International Trafficking of Women and Children. In this hearing, the United States proposed the following recommendations:
-Define trafficking to encompass trafficking into all forms of forced labor and servitude including trafficking into forced marriage.
-Actively investigating, prosecuting, and punishing those involved in the trafficking of persons and imposing penalties appropriate for the grave nature of the abuses they have committed.
-Exempting trafficking victims from prosecution for any immigration violations or other offenses that have occurred as a result of their being trafficked.
-Ensuring that trafficking victims have the opportunity to seek remedies for the human rights violations they have suffered, including compensation for damages, unpaid wages, and restitution.
-Taking strong precautions to ensure the physical safety of trafficked persons.
-Protecting women's rights and addressing the inequality in status and opportunity that makes women vulnerable to trafficking and other abuses.
