America’s Bondage…The Threat of Human Trafficking on the Rise
by Susan Price, TLB Contributing Writer
It threatens public safety and national security. But worst of all, the crime robs human beings of their freedom and their dignity. That’s why we must pursue an end to the scourge of human trafficking…
Human Trafficking is a 32 Billion dollar a year plus industry, these crimes against humanity involve exploiting a person for labor, services, commercial sex and organ harvesting. Cases of organ harvesting are taking place in over 78 countries in the world, including the U.S.
It’s a paralyzing thought and actual nightmare to contemplate this terroristic and dehumanizing crisis taking place during the 21st century against the people of the world including this growing threat to America. The possible loss of oneself or a loved one through the indecent acts of Human Trafficking Bandits, wiping away all normal existence as human beings are killed or live out the rest of their lives in hell on earth.
Infecting and affecting our culture like our global neighbors who before us, have fallen prey to this insidious rising crime, who’s wickedness knows no boundaries or civility, as it’s counterparts have infested the shadows, stalking upon people of all nations, victimizing the innocent and unaware, as these body snatchers are just doing business as usual.
Daily reports flow into law enforcement offices throughout the United States regarding missing persons vanishing without a trace from their private worlds as mothers and fathers, husbands, wives especially children, to the dark and sinister forces of evil and depravity, as it’s tentacles seeks to rob the very existence of a life belonging to another, and sucking the human spirit from every living vessel it abducts in return for money, abusing and misusing the commodity of people for the tragedy of slavery, sex industries, forced labor, body harvesting and other unthinkable crimes.
Most Americans would be remiss in belief that these gang related and soulless operations of human trafficking even exist in a civilized culture as the Media remains silent and complacent. WHY?
Has Human Trafficking in the United States of America become some sort of obtuse agenda as it is with various governments and enterprises around the globe controlled by a growing epidemic of despicable despots?
They say in order to get to the root of corruption, one must follow the money, as time and history has proven a connection to a distorted political plan, one that was once contained and isolated now a growing global epidemic.
In communities around this country, families, schools, churches and business organizations are enlightening their citizens, providing them with knowledge of these egregious assaults against a free nations people and responding with building networks of safety and security measures to any and all places where people travel to and from their homes, during the day and especially at night, the “see something, say something act” is being implemented.
Who would have dreamed Americans would become fear stricken at home with the inability to move about freely, feeling compelled to alter and restrategize daily living routines in order to maintain protection from these lawless and demoralizing predators.
The aware population are arming themselves with every form of protection, gun sales are up to their highest levels, self defense classes are growing, even purchases of pepper spray and the like are flying off the shelves, yet the single most important thing to arm oneself is knowledge, common sense and awareness at all times and if you see something, say something and always let someone close to you know where you are.
Living in a world of selfies, social media, cell phones and sophisticated technology has contributed and enabled the growth of this crime as it’s predators openly monitor their victims
Many of these victims who escaped their capture by narrow margins sound the alarms regarding their encounters, most in plain sight, they say they cannot sleep as they fear they are being followed, constantly looking over their shoulders and only traveling in groups, ordering most of their basic needs online. They report they are approached outside shopping malls, department stores, grocery stores, playgrounds, various other places once known as safe zones have become a hunting grounds for men, women and especially children of every age and color.
Did you know this silent war has grown over 35.7% during the last year in America alone? What are you personally going to do about it?
With the Holidays upon us, it is even more critical that we stay vigilant and aware, keep our children closer to us and watch out for diversions in shopping malls and areas away from home.

With 40.3 million slaves worldwide, modern slavery affects almost every sector, region and country! Secretary of State Rex W Tillerson defines “Human Trafficking”.
“Human Trafficking is one of the most tragic human rights issues of our time. It splinters families, distorts global markets, undermines the rule of law, and spurs other transnational criminal activity. It threatens public safety and national security. But worst of all, the crime robs human beings of their freedom and their dignity. That’s why we must pursue an end to the scourge of human trafficking. Today we take another key step towards that goal. “The 2017 Trafficking in Persons Report” highlights the successes achieved and the remaining challenges before us on this important global issue”. It is the Worlds 3rd Largest Crime.
INJUSTICE ANYWHERE IS A THREAT TO JUSTICE EVERYWHERE
Polaris, which runs the hotline, reported 7,572 cases involving 6,340 females, 978 males and 70 listed as “gender minorities.” A total of 4,890 reported cases involved adults and 2,387 involved minors. In some cases, callers do not provide demographic information.”

H.R. 3244 (106th) : Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000
Human Trafficking Cases Reported by State: The Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000 sought to change that by focusing on the prosecution and enforcement against traffickers.
Did you know this federal statute passed into law in 2000 by the U.S. Congress and signed by President Bill Clinton?
Introduced on November 8, 1999, 106th Congress, 1999-2000 ; Status: Enacted-Signed by the President on October 28th, 2000 Law: Pub.L 106-386
Copy of the Bill: https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/106/hr3244/text
The law was later reauthorized by Presidents George W Bush and Barack Obama. It has the ability to authorize protections for undocumented immigrants who are victims of severe forms of trafficking.
NOTE: This Bill was enacted by President Bill Clinton only ten days before George W Bush was elected into office as the 41st President of the U.S. and this Bill was put into action one year before the tragedy of 911. Let us NOT FORGET, that the 911 tragedy is what created the entity of Department of Homeland Security…WITHOUT the approval of Congress and the DHS was formed on November 25, 2002, Yet, only four months later, on March 1, 2003, the DHS absorbed the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) and assumed it’s duties. In doing so, it divided the enforcement and services functions into two separate and new agencies: Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Citizenship and Immigration Services.”
The Department of Justice has cited the legislation after a bump in trafficking investigations and prosecutions. Between the fiscal years of 2001-2007, there was a 360 percent increase in convictions compared to the seven previous years.
One would ask why and how this uncivilized act of Human Trafficking has found itself into the U.S. during the 21st Century?
During the Obama Administration, there was a major increase of illegal aliens entering the U.S. We have also witnessed the increase in crimes including that of human trafficking. As illegal aliens poured through open borders into America, they themselves became a prime target for human trafficking along with the lives of Americans.
The emergence of historical number of refugees and illegal aliens onto American soil was and still is a very controversial issue witnessed by many concerned Americans who could see this as a form of a TROJAN HORSE AMBUSH by our enemies with the aiding and abetting of compartmentalized government alphabet soup groups as they informed their border patrol to stand down allowing the foreign undocumented aliens to flood into our communities.
Most of them were transported and funded throughout the U.S. by government, private organizations and various churches as their vices.
Gang members and other criminal element assimilated within this process, masking themselves as the despondent aliens, with an agenda of violence and unrest throughout America and the FACTS ARE that within the past year, there is a reported 35.7% increase of Human Trafficking crimes and growing.
Human Trafficking is a crime that involves exploiting a person for labor, services, or commercial sex.
The Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 and its subsequent reauthorizations define human trafficking as:
a) Sex trafficking in which a commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age; or
b) The recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery.
(22 U.S.C. § 7102(9)).
