  3. 3. What is Human Trafficking?
  4. 4. • There are laws, but there are also loopholes – High demand for low wage workers • Migrants are the most attractive guinea pigs
  5. 5. • Where are these loopholes happening? – Almost everywhere • Japan • United Arab Emirates (UAE) • United States of America
  6. 6. • Japan: – Industrial Training Program (ITP) – Technical Internship Program (TIP) • UAE: – Ministry of Interior • United States: – Trafficking and Violence Protection Act (TVPA) – H-2B – Department of Labor (DOL) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
  7. 7. • Human trafficking is one of the lead causes towards suicide, HIV/AIDS and also psychological disorders. • Human trafficking leaves the exploited at a high risk of contracting various sexually transmitted diseases and HIV/AIDS that they further pass on to the men and their partners. In some cases, victims are also subjected to substance abuse by being forced to take drugs. Such individuals also have to constantly battle with drug addiction. Improper supply of meals and the lack of nutritious food cause malnourishment in victims. • Poor living conditions also contribute to development of various diseases effecting the victims in which they suffer from in later years. The victims are not given any medical aid to cure these ailments. Those recruited in chemical factories are treated like modern-day slaves and when they succumb to occupational diseases, are quickly replaced by another batch of victims.
  8. 8. • Human Trafficking also slows down the economic growth of the nation. The wealth gains from trafficking are redirected to legal activities by investing in businesses or funding public affairs in order to launder that money. Along with forced cheap labor, this creates competition for genuine businesses. • The children are likely to become withdrawn and tend to be suicidal. Any children born to the victims of prostitution are taken away at the time of birth causing further mental agony to the mothers. The longer the victims have been enslaved, greater will be their traumatic experience. • Statistics by the U.S. Department of State, globally, 2 million children are trafficked into the sex trade each year. The children suffer from lack of selfesteem, emotional disturbance, disorientation, and depression and are scarred for life. They develop deep psychological disorders that they struggle with for the rest of their lives even if they have been rescued. Psychological vulnerability hinders them from having a healthy state of mind in their future.

  10. 10. • Gangs of organ traffickers conduct a million- dollars business in the illegal trade. • The human trafficking industries generate about 32 billion dollars profits every year. That is more than Nike, Starbucks, and Google combine.
  11. 11. • Human trafficking researchers estimate that more than 50% of trafficking victims are children. • According to a 2009 Washington Times article, the Taliban buys children as young as seven years old to act as a suicide bombers. • UNICEF estimates that 300,000 children younger than 18 are currently trafficked to serve in armed conflicts worldwide.
  12. 12. • According to the FBI, San Diego is in the top 13 cities in America with the highest incidences of child prostitution. • Human-trafficking cases filed in San Diego have jumped more than 600% in the past 5 years • Family Justice Center in San Diego suggests that approx. 45,000 people are trafficked into the U.S. every year.
  13. 13. • Hotel Circle, El Cajon Boulevard, Main Street near 32nd Street Naval Base, National City, Vista, and in Spring Valley have all been identified as areas of human trafficking incidences. • Founder of Border Angels, Enrique Morones said “There is not a boulevard in Sand Diego that has more of a history of prostitution than El Cajon Boulevard…” • The vast majority of 588 arrests made last year around the area of 30th Street and El Cajon Boulevard were prostitution related according to
  14. 14. • Experts say drug cartels are playing a central role in the MULTIBILLION-dollar-a-year business of illegal immigrant smuggling by commandeering operations from independent “coyotes.” • Cartels further exploit the illegal immigrants by forcing them into economics bondage or prostitution. Recently illegal immigrants have been forced to pay unreasonably high fees to be smuggled across the U.S. border • Why?... Rep.
