Human Trafficking
Reason #1
Reasons #1
No Efficient Government Regulations

The Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) was authorized in 2000 and was the
federal law to address sex trafficking and labor trafficking in the United States.

There are states like Wyoming, where until February 27, 2013 no state law existed to punish traffickers.
Reason #2
Government is not focusing on all sub categories of Human Trafficking

The Government is not properly enforcing labor laws.

Many citizens, as well as immigrants, are not coming forth that they are being trafficked.
The Government is not enforcing states to be productive with implementing new laws to combat Human Trafficking.
The Sacramento Innocence Lost Task Force was
established in 2010.

Many victims aren't being aided, after their release from the task force, and soon return to being trafficked.
The Government is not doing enough to eradicate human trafficking because they are not regulating efficiently, not focusing on the sub categories, and they are not implementing the new law that they made.

Reason #3
The Government is not enforcing states to be productive with implementing new laws to combat Human Trafficking.
According to Polaris, 12 states have failed to make minimal efforts to pass laws that support victims.
Although California is considered to be a Tier 1 state, Sacramento is the 2nd Worst City In the U.S. Among Human Trafficking.
