  For a number of years, the trafficking of humans has been recognized as a fast increasing
 crime problem both nationally and in the southern part of Texas, which shares hundreds of
miles of border with Mexico. In a report recently released by Gregg Abbot, Texas Attorney
 General, it was estimated that 20% of victims of human trafficking nationwide are found in
  Texas. The Houston Metropolitan area, a central repository for trafficking victims and a
  main thoroughfare to other cities, is located a short drive from the Texas/Mexico border.
The smuggling of humans across the border has long been a problem in the Southern District
of Texas. It has become apparent over the last few years that many of those being smuggled
 were being transported against their will or were being held in captivity and forced to turn
 over all their wages and/or forced into labor activities against their will. Many of these are
        the most vulnerable - women and children - who are forced into prostitution.
