Just wanted to quickly post a link of a sex trafficking report done by a Houston Chornicle photojournalist.

It seems to be an overview of the problem.  The main points are that even if the leaders of trafficking rings are behind bars, the victims are still fearful of retaliation by his or her friends or relatives back home in Mexico or elsewhere.  One victim said that, “I came to [America] with the dream of making things better for my children, but instead of helping them I’ve actually sacrificed them.”

The player is built in the Houston Chronicle website so you have to go there to watch the 3:35 piece.
