(Definingthe issue)

Itis with deep concern that I stand to support the S.178 (Survivors ofHuman Trafficking Empowerment Act). As a citizen of the UnitedStates, I have encountered many survivors who were once exploited andended up on the streets to work into adulthood. Victims oftrafficking suffer through neglect and abuse unimaginably. This isthe result of being failed by their families. These girls do notallow the magnitude of their circumstances to put them down, and ifonly they had a more influential voice to speak for them, their paincould be brought to an end (Raymond, 2009).

Veryclose people in their lives including family first expose most of thegirls who fall victim of the trafficking to sexual molestation. Whenthey have no one to look out for them emotionally in their physicaland emotional pain, they become vulnerable, and that is what causesthem to go out to the streets or even begin engaging sexualassociations in exchange for money since their self-esteem becomescrushed and they are left with nothing to value themselves for. TheCongress should totally bring those who perform such actions tojustice as it is consuming many young girls in the society (Kotrla,2010).

Research

Chuang,J. A. (2006). The United States as global sheriff: Using unilateralsanctions to combat human trafficking. Michigan Journal ofInternational Law, 27(2).

Havinggone to the point of being a political agenda, those opposing humantrafficking have come out to try and seek remedy for the evil. Thisarticle is relevant to my research as it examines how significant thesanctions regime of the United States is within the framework of thenew cooperation that has now become international and has beenestablished by Protocol.

Gozdziak,E. M., &amp Collett, E. A. (2005). Research on human trafficking inNorth America: A review of the literature. International Migration,43(1‐2),99-128.

Thearticle is important because it provides research-based informationabout the most dreaded tragedy that has been on the rise and hasconsumed the most promising lives of youths and children in theUnited States. It provides an assessment of the phenomena in theNorthern part of America specifically. It modestly seeks to surveythe literature that exists in trafficking fellow human beings forsex. To come to a valid research outcome, a wide spectrum ofpublished works have been included in the study.

Kotrla,K. (2010). Domestic minor sex trafficking in the United States.Social work, 55(2), 181-187.

Accordingto this article, the youth, and more especially minors, constitutethe group that is most vulnerable to human trafficking in the UnitedStates. Research shows that most of the grown up women taking part inprostitution got into it as minors and were most likely traffickedtoo. &quotDomestic minor sex trafficking&quot is the term used byother experts to refer to the social evil of trafficking youths andchildren in the United States. The article is relevant to my researchas it acquaints those reading it with the currently known informationabout the extent of the tragedy, the most vulnerable group in thesociety and the implications it has on the victims.

Raymond,J. G., Hughes, D. M., &amp Gomez, C. J. (2009). Sex trafficking ofwomen in the United States.

Thisbook acknowledges the fact that human trafficking has become aproblem of national concern since it is on a high rise. Women andchildren are the most affected group of individuals subjected totrafficking for sexual exploitation. The book is relevant to myresearch as it documents cases of victims of human trafficking in apractical sense. It also provides a description of the locallyexisting sex industries and how they are involved in prostitution andtrafficking for sexual purposes. The book establishes a framework forresearch about trafficking human beings for sex in the United Statesand provides valid information.

Analysis

Researchshows that those countries from which the victims of trafficking comeare economically poor and unemployed women are very easily recruited.Most of those who traffic have a criminal record and have the samenationalities as their victims. The process of recruiting is usuallyeffective when there is involvement of the victim`s family.

Thereare more female than male victims in the trafficking businessaccording to research. The majority of those who were asked about thekind of trafficking they were involved in pointed to forcedprostitution which was then followed by being a domestic servant anda laborer in the agricultural sector (Chuang, 2006). Whether this isthe outcome of the trends of trafficking or training, it has not yetbeen clarified.

Thematter has gained political interest with the public crying out tothe Congress to look into the issue and bring to justice thoseinvolved in the business. There is an act that is still pending thatintends to bring to justice all those who participate in humantrafficking. This is the only way through which this activity can beregulated, and little girls saved from being abused (Gozdziak, et al.2005). The Congress has power over the issue.

DearSenator,

RE:INTERVENTION FOR A HUMAN TRAFFICKING PROBLEM

Followingthe rise in cases of human trafficking in our state, I at this momentwrite this letter to request for government intervention concerningthe issue. Many youths and minors have been subjected to the cruelmercy of human traffickers who subject them to prostitution at a veryearly age. I am in complete support of S.178 Survivors of HumanTrafficking Empowerment Act.

Ibelieve the funding for abortion for the victims should not be partof the bill as it will only cause more deaths and make the situationworse. I have faith that you will do something about the issue verysoon and stop the sources for human trafficking to save the lives ofyoung children. The US congress is the most appropriate body that canaddress the issue because it has authority to enact laws which willhelp control the evil. By passing a bill to protect such girls, hopewill return to many and most lives will be saved as a result.I hope to see this being addressed soon. Thank you in advance

Yourssincerely,

Signature
