There are three types of trafficking.  Sex, Labor, and Domestic Servitude.  It is in every town in this country.  If you know how to get onto the dark web you can find trafficking in every town in America.  America is number one in trafficking.  And it is growing here by 20% per year.  If we don’t stop this soon they will be coming to your door and asking if you have any youngsters in your home and will leave with them at gunpoint. 

What the FBI says about Human Trafficking

  • US was listed as the most common destination for victims.
  • 80% of all trafficking is for the purpose of sexual exploitation (According to UN).
  • 1 in 4 are children.
  • 71% are women and young girls.
  • 3rd most profitable business for organized crime. (Drugs and weapons are 1 and 2.)
  • $32 billion annually just in forced labor.
  • 148 plus goods identified as being produced by forced labor and child labor.

There are 40.3 million-plus modern-day slaves. 

The maximum fine is $100,000 dollars.  Only 30% of that goes back to policing.  It is more profitable than drugs.  They can sell humans more than once.  For the criminal to make money in drugs he has to continuously buy a new product and only makes a profit if he can sell them higher than what he paid for it.  Humans are 100% profitable and are higher priced. 

In North Carolina, Human Trafficking increased by 185% last year.  We used to be ranked number 11 in the US, now we are close to the top five.

In 2021, the Department of Justice allowed $100,000,000 dollars to the FBI and Homeland Security to fight trafficking.  

What they actually got was only $11,000,000 dollars. 

Child Sexual Predators typically have between 50 and 150 victims over the course of their lifetimes. Children are most vulnerable to child sexual abuse between the ages of 7 and 13. 90% of children who suffered sexual abuse were violated by someone known to the family.
