The Super Bowl is seven months away, but already preparation in New Jersey has begun and that has some of New Jersey leadership bracing for business that may not be above board.
The Super Bowl and other large events tend to be a magnet for human trafficking and the Garden State says they won’t stand for it.
Human trafficking encompasses both the sex trade and labor traffickers, both practices are illegal. It’s the modern day slave trade. So months before the super bowl, which is expected to drawn thousands to the Garden State, the leadership has a message and a plan.
“The message we want to send is don’t bring that business here. NJ is closed to trafficking. You cannot profit from trafficking here,” says Tracy Thompson, the Assistant Attorney General of New Jersey.
When you have huge crowds of people from all over the country in one place for a short period of time, it can become a black market breeding ground that keeps the horrific human trafficking business in the shadows.
