This paper reviews the rights and protection that a state and federal government official provides to citizens that have been the subject of human trafficking crimes. The paper relates that citizens need the protection of the police and other law enforcement officials to report human trafficking crimes and to protect and assist those that need their assistance. This paper explains the definition of human trafficking, how it works, victim support, issues with upholding and implementing legislature and the solutions which can be used to satisfy the public. The paper finds that citizens and policy makers increasingly understand that human trafficking is an urgent matter of social justice, and they are also more and more likely to be knowledgeable about its victims, perpetrators, and harms.

From the Paper:

"Human trafficking, frequently known as modern day slavery is a global phenomenon that involves obtaining or maintaining the labor or services of a person by way of the use of force, fraud, or coercion in infringement of a person's human rights. Making billions of dollars in income every year, human trafficking is one of the world's quickest growing criminal activities, operating on the same scale as the unlawful trade of guns and drugs. Sparked by global financial conditions and increased global mobility, the market for and trade of human beings persists to get bigger quickly.
"Those who traffic in humans can sell and resell their product forcing each victim to suffer over and over again. Even though real figures are hard to find out due to the subversive nature of the trade, the U.S. State Department's 2006 Trafficking in Persons Report approximates that up to nine hundred thousand people are trafficked every year globally, with seventeen thousand of these victims trafficked into the United States. These statistics do not include those people who are trafficked inside the border of the United States. It is projected that eight percent of those who are trafficked are women and children."
