DOCUMENT INFO
Description: According to the U.S. Department of State, approximately 560,000 women and children are trafficked across international borders each year and forced into the commercial sex trade.2 This is a conservative estimate, and some non-governmental organizations (NGOs) put the number well into the millions.3 When sex-trafficking figures are cumulated over the years, the scope of the problem becomes even more evident. Additionally, the U.S. is failing to recognize that so-called consensual prostitutes suffer many of the same abuses and horrors as trafficking victims. [...] if the U.S. wants the VTVPA to be truly effective in combating international sex trafficking, it must amend the Act so that the minimum standards require nations to have stringently enforced laws against prostitution.
