US Human Trafficking Blacklist Doubles!

On Monday, June 27, 2011 the Obama administration took one step further in the fight against human trafficking. The US added more countries to the US “human trafficking blacklist”, nearly doubling those that may face sanctions from the US for not doing enough about human trafficking in their country, The State Department’s annual Trafficking in Persons report found an increase of 13 nations (from 2010) that failed to meet minimum international standards to curb human trafficking, and another 41 countries were placed onto a watch list. Each year, there are as many as 12.3 million men, women, and children who are trafficked as modern day slaves throughout the world.
