In 2004, the State Department report on Human Trafficking detailed the clear link between human trafficking and prostitution.
National Human Trafficking Hotline states that an estimated 56% of prostituted men and women were initially trafficked youth. In 2013, 32% of all calls to their support hotline indicate that the victims calling were foreign nationals being trafficked for prostitution in the USA.
Dr. John A King is a SUBJECT MATTER EXPERT in the field of Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation. His non-profit foundation, Give Them A Voice is actively involved in some of the largest human trafficking and sexual abuse cases in American history. All of these cases have hubs or centers of human trafficking based in California and Nevada.
In a separate interview, Dr. King address the issue again, “Human trafficking is now the largest source of income for terror rings like ISIS and Book Haram. It is the income of choice for what were once drug cartels. You sell a gram of coke once, you can resell a child thousands of times. There is a total disconnect between legislature and the reality on the ground.”
