Reports show that the child trafficking industry is a 12 billion dollar illegal operation that is occurring both in the United States and around the world. An NBC Report stated that a predator can make over $200,000 each year from just one victim of modern day slavery. Combine that with the estimated 2.5 million children that have been sexually exploited and $12 billion isn’t such an unbelievable number.
Human trafficking is one of the biggest problems occurring in the U.S. and around the world. If the evolution of high profits, high demand, and low risk continues, the growth of this epidemic will continue as well. Due to these factors, criminal organizations, such as the mob and other gangs, have begun to take part in this tragedy that devastates the lives of millions of children around the world.
