Human trafficking is a severe form of exploitation (labor or sexual).

Traffickers rob victims of their human rights and subject them to physical, mental, emotional, and/or psychological abuse.

Characterizing human trafficking

According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, trafficked humans are often beaten, starved, and forced to work as prostitutes or to take grueling jobs as farm workers, domestic, restaurant, or factory workers with little or no pay.

In a recent, nationwide crackdown, the FBI rescued 105 victims of child sex-trafficking after targeting Internet sites, truck stops, casinos, and the streets. Since 2003, the FBI has recovered 2,700 juveniles and arrested 1,350 adults involved in trafficking operations.
