It is not just here in the United States but international as well. There have been so many young children, women, and men of all ages taken from their homes only to be sold to the highest bidder for sex, labor and other things. Over the years there has been as many as 18,000 people bought by human traffickers in the United States every year, then sold overseas just like there people are brought here from other countries like Korea, Russia and others. We know human trafficking is a moneymaker for all kinds of people, but we, as Americans need to try and keep this from happening to these innocent people every year.

Sometimes America doesn’t know who is being sold, so the numbers I stated earlier do not even reflect the ones we do not know about that are sold into prostitution, or for labor, or even as housewives. Yes, mail order brides are another form of human trafficking in these states as well as international.
