ABSTRACT

Trafficking in Persons in the United States   [open pdf - 2MB]

"This research used case studies to identify points of intervention at each stage of the trafficking process. We looked for points where law enforcement, civil society, business, and the public could take action. We sought to identify actions that would lead to: more successful prevention of trafficking; the discovery, liberation, improved care and rehabilitation of victims; and, especially, ways to increase prosecutions that will shut down trafficking operations. By addressing these points of intervention we believe the United States can become a much harder target for criminal traffickers - a place where the risks of discovery are greater and the consequences more swift and decisive. For each case, we examined the roles of various actors in the trafficking process: law enforcement, immigration services, the criminal justice system and judiciary, social services, the victim's legal representation, collaboration between all these agencies, and demand factors and industry of exploitation."
