Human Trafficking: The Global Goldmine for Gangs and Cartels (Part 1)

The destabilization of the Middle East and parts of Africa have resulted in mass migration into Europe and other countries. Migrants from Latin and South American countries are pouring into the U.S. in record numbers and are often referred to as “Border Kids.” Gangs, Cartels and Organized Crime are making a fortune through sex and labor exploitation.

Join “Exploited – Crimes Against Humanity” this week as we examine how vulnerable individuals seeking a better life have been exploited or trafficked. More important, we will look at each case from the perspective of law enforcement, the victim and the perpetrator to understand how to recognize this crime, how to assist a victim, and how to report a case to help stop this travesty.

Be sure to join us on Thursday, July 28, 2016 at 7:00 a.m. Pacific Time on the Voice America – Variety Channel. If you miss the live show, you can find the archived show on
