They are either thrown out of the sex industry, killed or die from sickness and diseases. If the United States would safeguard its borders it would not only help minimize trafficking of women and children, but even slow down illegal immigrants. United States needs to persuade other governments that allow prostitution to make it illegal. In countries where prostitution is legalized, the trafficking of women and children is increased. Worldwide governments need to safeguard their borders to stop illegal trafficking of women and children who are forced into the sex industry.
(pg. 34) Human trafficking is the trade of humans for the purpose of slavery, labor or the removal of organs. It is a lucrative industry representing billions each year and it affects every country and most socio-economic levels.

In this article, we shall evaluate the effectiveness of the measures that have been taken to control the children and adolescents who have a high risk of future offending. According to researchers, there has been a lot of arrests of young children and adolescents. Law enforcement in the United States for example arrested 2.4 million children aged 18 years and below. This was a 18% of all arrests made, 33% of all property crimes and 17% of the criminal activities that were committed that year (Snyder, 1999). More significant is that cases of cases of youthful offenders are on the rise on among the young female compared to their male counterparts and this situation is raising an alarm (Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, 1999).
By examining human trafficking through a distinctive context, it will explain a deeper understanding of human trafficking and offer a prescription for reducing the adverse effects and the efforts to combat human trafficking and the individuals that now suffer such abuses. Human trafficking is an illegal form of modern day slavery. Human beings are not property and they are unfortunately being used for forced labor and prostitution. According to the article, Sex Trafficking of Women and Children in the United States, there is a large amount of victims taken into this life of crime. An estimated 12 million people worldwide are in forced labor, debt bondage, forced child labor, or sexual servitude.
Although governments try to prevent trafficking from happening, trafficking happens every day, everywhere. Governments have established laws to punish trafficking practice and the United Nations also has established a protocol to prevent and to punish trafficking, especially for women and children. The target of trafficking can be anyone, but women and children are the two most common target of trafficking. A lot of women and children are being forced to be prostitutes or slaves. The victims of trafficking are usually from developing countries and are being trafficked to developed countries.
“Studies suggest a strong correlation between those who seek out child pornography and those would be diagnosed as pedophiles.” (Carlson 27). Carlson goes on to say that if an individual who has pedophilic fantasies and view child pornography is not inhibited in some way they will go after sexual relationships with children outside of the internet. Carlson continues, “These individuals are compelled to commit sex offenses in order to fulfill their incessant sexual fantasies.” McCarthy opposes this view by stating that out of a group of 1,713 sample child pornography offenders 40% were what McCarthy referred to as “dual offenders”; meaning they have committed non-contact crimes as well as contact crimes. (McCarthy 183) McCarthy states in opposition to the previous statements that it is documented that sex offender’s use the internet to groom and meet potential victims, as well as network with others who share similar deviant sexual interests. Quayle suggests that possible pedophiles may use the internet and child pornography as a means to “substitute” seeking out and abusing children.
Jazmine Stinson English III/ 2nd Ms. Johnson 8 December, 2010 Forced (Sex Trafficking) Sex Trafficking is “the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for the purpose of a commercial sex act in which a commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person forced to perform such an act is under the age of 18 years. (Winfrey2)” Shouldn’t children be able to feel safe in their own front yards? Is it right for children to be forced to be apart of something that they didn’t even imagine being involved in? Nearly 1.2 million children are trafficked each year across the nation and also across the world. Most of these children either end up being lost or just disappear from existence.
Net Child Pornography According to Sex Offenders and the Internet, written by Kerry Sheldon and Dennis Howitt, “child pornography was considered to be a small and specialist issue-an adjunct to the broader problem of pornography of all sorts” (7). However, in the last decade there has been a considerable increase in child pornography. It led to professional and public awareness of internet use in exacerbating child sexual abuse. Ricky Martin is one of the professionals who work to stop the abuse of children worldwide. His foundation “People for Children” raises public awareness and influences public policy makers on issues such as child pornography, prostitution, and labor servitude.
Women and girls are trafficked internally for commercial sex. Children are subject to involuntary servitude as factory workers, domestic servants, beggars, agricultural workers and many times they are also sexually abused by their owners. No crime can be worse than this (Human Trafficking Statistics, 2010). What is human trafficking?
