SMUGGLING VERSUS TRAFFICKING:
HOW MUCH DO CARTELS REALLY MAKE?
This week we will explore the difference between human smuggling and human trafficking. We will examine the financial ramifications of paying a coyote to cross over into the U.S. We will also talk about debt bondage and the challenges to undocumented immigrants when they arrive in the U.S.
Finally, we will analyze the cycle of revenue from human trafficking including labor trafficking, sex trafficking and drug trafficking. And, we will discuss the impact of a more secure border and increased risk factors for individuals living in the shadows.
Join us Thursday, May 24, 2018 at 7a.m. PST on VOICE AMERICA – Variety Channel as we delve into human smuggling and human trafficking across our borders.
