Thanks to the insatiable American appetite for drugs and illicit sex, this problem isn’t going away soon.

In the sex trade, the overhead is low and there’s less killing than there is in the drug trade. There’s also considerable shame associated with sex and sexuality, so these factors combined make illegal sex trafficking one of the least discussed crimes in existence.

However, the crime is real and the human misery associated with the practice is so great, that moral people can no longer ignore its reality.

Opportunities to escape poverty are slim in Mexico, and that’s where the traffickers start.
Grooming girls, sometimes as young as 9 years old, and more commonly in their teens, traffickers attract their victims by offering promises of work and better lives away from home. It should be mentioned that not all victims are female; about 21 percent of sex trafficking victims are male.

Lured away from home, victims end up in places like Tenancingo where as soon as their very first night they are raped, sometimes by gangs of men who pay for the experience.
