How would you feel?
They are taught by traffickers to distrust outsiders, including law enforcement.
Hesitant to come forward with the fear of being deported
Unaware of their rights and are intentionally misinformed about their rights in their country.
Victims not only fear of their own safety but of their own family back in their home country.
Victims do not self-identify as victims. They do not see themselves as people.
According to the U.S State Department more than 700,000 people are trafficked through international borders every year.
In conclusion, traffickers tend to be adult males and citizens of the country in which they operate, but more women and foreign nationals are involved in trafficking in persons than in most other crimes.
Women traffickers are often involved in the trafficking of girls and tend to be used for low-ranking activities that have a higher risk of detection.
The victims tend to feel alone in the situation and do not have a clue in what direction to go, with all the threats traffickers have placed on them. Which makes their situation much complicated than one would imagine.
