August 02, 2010, 147 years after slavery was abolished, here in the good old USA. Slavery is still in effect; sure the Underground Railroad is gone. This situation is unfortunately far worse – yet many people are unaware of it. Why? The government is paying little attention. With over 17,500 people involved or affected by modern-day slavery here in the US (Silver 6). With a record breaker of 43% the sex industry is on top of the chart (Quoted by Galuszka 1). Our government should be making more effort. With fake arrange marriage and prostitution on the rise, it leaves a great gap for perverts everywhere.

If the justice system lack knowledge on human trafficking how common citizen can know what’s going on. The public needs to know this is serious not just a international problem but here in the US too.
Furthermore the questioning fake arranges marriages that are happening under our very nose. Mail-order in my opinion is a form of human trafficking since some, instance the “husband” send for a “wife” and a poor country girl from Slovakia becomes a victim. Many poor families in the European area especially, need money and the mail order bride is the best option they have for their daughter and too live. So they carry the knowledge that their daughter is safe in the US with a good husband, when for most that’s not the reality. Many young women fall for this stories and imagine themselves in America but in up in an abusive...
