The Reality of Human Trafficking

When you think of the words "Human Trafficking" what comes to mind? Most often than not, North Americans think that the enslavement of humans only happens abroad, but the reality is - it's in our own backyard.

A recent MSNBC interview tells the story of a woman who was trafficked in her small, suburban town as a teenager.

Bars around Houston are famous for trafficking women from Mexico to "work". Read a recent Houston Chronicle article! Check out another report by Fox News.
