Politically speaking, in some parts of the world, it is considered acceptable to own slaves. Human trafficking is an international occurrence, and it is post-modern slavery. As a rule, when victims are trafficked they are forced into a life of work in agriculture, manufacturing, construction, retail and domestic service (Rosen). However, when underage girls/young women are exploited, they are usually trafficked for commercial sex (Rosen). The Congressional Research Service notes: “Trafficking victims are often subjected to mental and physical abuse in order to control them, including debt bondage, social isolation, removal of identification cards and travel documents, violence, and fear of reprisals against them or their families.” Unfortunately, the true number of people trafficked, in the sex trade and into forced labor, is difficult to determine.
These problems have caused pain for many in Mexico and even in the U.S. because of the shared border and some U.S. citizens have lost some of their loved ones because of the trafficking, this is the reason that the U.S. should get involved and help Mexico. Human trafficking victims can be forced to do different things such as physical labor and prostitution. The things that usually are key to trafficking are that the victims are vulnerable to anything that involves a better life or involving moving into the U.S. The main reason is that they suffer from poverty; the victims want to help their family with money and are open to whatever way there is to get money. In addition, many in Mexico risk their lives to come to the U.S. hoping that they can find work.
They often become dependent upon their agents and employers which forces them into an exploitative situation. Debt bondage, (paying the cost for travel) can play a crucial role in strengthening the dependence of trafficked women and girls on their traffickers, since victims often need to pay back the debt. As a result, some women and girls are susceptible to being forced into prostitution and therefore fall under the control of criminal networks. Many trafficked women and girls lack awareness of their legal rights and have no avenue for seeking redress. It is common for woman and children to be trafficked from countries with economic, environmental or political problems, to countries or regions that have a better quality of life.

When human trafficking is involved, the person has no way to say no due to being forced against their will. The kidnapped sex slaves are brutally beat, raped, and starved in order to keep from putting up a fight (Random History). Finding ways to cease human trafficking, especially when it involves prostitution, will save the rights of women because they will be able to consent to fornication. According to Ruth Rosenberg: Human trafficking involves by definition human beings. These are individuals that have been subject to exploitation and serious human rights violations.
Slaves are being forced to do things against their will by fraud, coercion and abuse. Organizations have come together to help human trafficking from increasing, but unfortunately that is not enough (CLM). Fraud is the first thing that a victim of human trafficker goes through. They are being promised high paying jobs, a better life and working conditions. Once fraud is done, the victims consent becomes invalid.
