Human trafficking stands as one of the most egregious breaches of human dignity and rights. This profound transgression manifests through the calculated manipulation, coercion, or force exerted on individuals, compelling them into labor or commercial sexual exploitation.

It is pivotal to understand that trafficking is not merely an issue of cross-border crime; it does not necessitate the physical transportation of persons across state or international boundaries.

It’s a pervasive concern that can, and does, affect individuals regardless of nationality, including both U.S. citizens and foreign nationals. Recognizing the multi-faceted nature of human trafficking is essential in the global effort to combat and eradicate this deeply entrenched issue.
