Human trafficking is the trade of humans, most commonly for the purpose of forced labor, sexual slavery, or commercial exploitation for the benefit or financial gain of the trafficker or others. This is modern-day slavery and because New Jersey borders so many states, we are a “hot spot” for human trafficking.
Every day local traffickers target NJ youth (average ages 6 to 25) because they know they can jump on Route 22, 78, 1&9, Garden State Parkway, NJ Turnpike, Route 202, 46, 80, 280, George Washington Bridge, Holland Tunnel, Lincoln Tunnel, etc. etc. and be in another state in less than 45 minutes. They abduct, entice, manipulate, convince, indoctrinate, etc. etc. to enlarge the stable of children that they will sell online for sex.
Sometimes it’s via force, but sometimes it’s via “friend”. That’s right; friends have unknowingly participated in the trafficking of their classmates. One student tells the story that a kid from his school gave him $50 to “get girls to come to a party he was throwing”. He later learned that some of the very girls he invited were drugged, raped, videotaped and blackmailed.
Human Trafficking is the fastest growing criminal enterprise in the world generating over $150 billion in profits and enslaving more than 20 million people, including millions of children – CNN.com
