It is a “problem of epidemic proportion” and it is getting worse. It is generating illegal revenue of $32 billion annually or about $87 billion per day. It is considered the world’s second largest criminal enterprise behind only drugs. It is human trafficking.
Nathan Wilson of the Project Meridian Foundation stated that due to the widespread of sex trafficking that “no country, no race, no religion, no class and no child is immune” from this heinous business. Wilson also stated that 1.6 million children (native and foreign born) have been caught up in “THIS” country’s sex trade.

It is estimated that-
• 10 million children are prostituted around the world
• 800,000 are trafficked into sex and forced labor situations worldwide EVERY YEAR
• 100,000-300,000 children are exploited in the U.S. or at risk of being exploited.

Sex trafficking isn’t just something that happens in remote places of the globe. It is taking place in our country and probably in your very own community. The victims are usually in plain sight and their captor’s criminal activity is publicly advertised.
Local law enforcement agencies are often aware of how “pimps” control and exploit women and children, but do not have the mandate of resources to treat them as victims. In 2009, we spent 5 times more on managing wild horses and burros than we did on programs that addressed the human trafficking trade. This is just unacceptable.

It is imperative that this issue be addressed. The citizens of this country and especially people of faith must learn more about this problem and get involved in putting an end to it. Let us do what we can to make the world a better place.
