Human trafficking needs to end in America

To the Editor:
January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. People wrongly think slavery ended in America. Sadly, the institution of slavery is still alive, it just goes by a new name: Human Trafficking. Every day, millions of victims, mostly women, are bought and sold around the world. According to one website, human trafficking is the abuse of children, women and men for their bodies or labor and is modern-day slavery. There are over 49 million people enslaved around the world.
The most upsetting fact is one-third of all sex trafficking is of children. Josh Peck won awards for his documentary called, “Silent Cry, The Darker Side of Trafficking,” and found a high amount of child sex trafficking is demonic people using and abusing the children for occult purposes.
Investigators claim one man, Sean Williams, may have raped over 50 in Johnson City including children. The Johnson City Police are being sued by nine women who say the police covered for Williams when he raped them! One man can do a lot of evil! For help or to report a tip call the National Human Trafficking Hotline at 1-888-373-7888 or text 233733 (Befree). Trafficking happens in every country. In Muslim countries it’s common for Muslims to force Christian women to marry them. America is ranked as one of the worst countries in the world for human trafficking. America has gotten worse with our open borders. America’s dirty little secret is America is the number one consumer of paid sex worldwide. America is driving the demand as a society. See the great movie, “The Sound of Freedom.” Tennessee is the best state in the nation for its response to the threat of human trafficking according to experts who gave Tennessee a grade of “A”. Shared Hope International (sharedhope.org) grades and ranks every state in the nation assessing law enforcement approaches, legislation and survivor services. Sadly, most states are doing little to stop human trafficking. A total of 32 states received a grade of “F” including Virginia! Pray for slavery to end in 2024!
