Human Trafficking for Sexual Exploitation in the United States Human trafficking for sexual exploitation is a major issue across the country. Human trafficking involves an act of recruiting, transporting, transferring, harboring or receiving a person through a use of force, coercion or other means, for the purpose of exploiting them (U.S. Department of State Diplomacy in Action). Sexual exploitation is the sexual abuse of children and youth through the exchange of sex or sexual acts for drugs, food, shelter, protection, other basics of life, and/or money (U.S. Department of State Diplomacy in Action). Every year, human traffickers generate billions of dollars in profits by victimizing millions of people around the world, and here in the United States. Human trafficking is considered one of the fastest growing criminal industries in the world.
There are 148,200 women in state and federal prisons (AI USA). African-American girls and women are becoming a fast growing population in our prisons and jails nation-wide. While much attention has been focused on the plight of young African-American males, girls have been involved in gangs, school fights, juvenile prisons and vandalism at a rate faster than that of boys. Also, the big issue that imprisoned women face is sexual assault and misconduct against them. In examining the reasons why women commit these crimes, Professor Johnson speaks of her recently published book, Inner Lives: Voices of African American Women in Prison.
The increase in power within the drug cartels makes the future of organized crime seem bleak regarding society, but positive for the OC units themselves. The 1980s brought about many changes in the world of drug trade. The United States government began blocking trades routes from the Caribbean, forcing drug smugglers to take different routes. The new routes ran through the Pacific and Central American isthmus which led smugglers straight to Mexico. Mexicans can smuggle just about anything across the border and upon this realization came the Mexican drug cartel boom.
Women on Rise as Family Breadwinner – Rough Draft “Women are not only more likely to be the primary caregivers in a family. Increasingly, they are primary breadwinners, too” (Rampell). As per the research conducted on women, more than one-third of the working mothers are now the primary breadwinners. In fact, they are earning more money than their husbands. Though few people are not happy with these changes due to their old thoughts, but, the number of working mothers is increasing drastically compared to previous years (Rampell).
Human Trafficking in Great Britain A grave violation of human rights, human trafficking has become modern day society’s form of slavery. It is a crime that devalues a person and compromises their human rights for profit. Imprisonment takes place in a number of forms; forced labor, sexually exploitation of women and children, organ removal and domestic servitude. The main genre of human trafficking that occurs in Great Britain is forced labor and sexually exploitation. Home Office estimates that between 8,000 and 13,000 men, women, and children were trafficked into for UK last year.
Castration and Sex Offenders Castration and Sex Offenders Laura L. Broussard LeTourneau University Abstract In this paper I will discuss the controversy of castrating sex offenders surgically and chemically, as a form of punishment. I will also exam the history and compare the difference between chemical and surgical castration. My discussion wills also exam the legal aspects of the castration process. CASTRATION AND SEX OFFENDERS Sex Offenders Sex offenders have been a serious problem for our legal system at all levels. There are 43,000 inmates in prison for sexual offenses, while each year in this country over 510,000 children are victims of sexual assault.
According to David R. Hodge in the article “Sexual Trafficking in the United States: A Domestic Problem With Transnational Dimensions,” 600,000 to 800,000 people being trafficked across nations with about 14,500 to 16,500 people being trafficked into the United States annually. With numbers this high, awareness in the nation should be more prominent when it comes to dealing with trafficking. Many young women, like Maria, are sold into the sex trade at young ages and are forced to perform sexual acts. The women’s “sponsors” brainwash the women into thinking multiple reasons that make forced commercial sex seem acceptable. It is the duty of government to enforce laws that will help protect women and children from becoming victims.
Human Trafficking in China Human trafficking occurs all over the world in many different levels. Is is wrong for people to control them in an unfair advantage. The human trafficking in China is known all over the world and it definitely has one of the biggest problems concerning this issue. Women and young kids are sold in the country, as well as out of the country, to become owned for sex and/or labor duties. Over 7,000 police officers police officers from 14 provincial regions took part in a joint operation busting trafficking networks.
America’s primary goal is national security and when thousands of illegal immigrants travel into the U.S. each year, any one of those illegal immigrants could have plans to wreak havoc on this country. Gang members could be affiliated with terrorist groups who have ill-intentions for America, jeopardizing public safety (I’d rather my pink Caddy not have bullet holes in it). Along with the violence, illegal immigrants take jobs away from legal residence (right about here is where I ran out of stuff to say so I B.S.-ed it to make it longer, just bein’ honest). It’s proven that illegal immigrants are more likely to do lower paying jobs that involve more labor than legal Americans, but in the long run those jobs would be filled by previously un-employed citizens. This would strengthen America’s economy in the long run and reduce how much the government pays out to
The ‘war on drugs’ has become a harsh and unnecessary measure that frankly costs American taxpayers far too much money. If the type of imprisonment suffered by nonviolent offenders is now deemed cruel and unusual, does the punishment really fit the crime? This is the question American citizens must ask themselves as they consider how far they must go in order to keep drug use and abuse under control. One of the many effects of the severe penalties for drug use is unjust incarceration. The average citizen may correctly point out that everyone has the right to due process and therefore innocent people are not simply sentenced to prison.
