Introduction

Sex trafficking activity in America mainly occurs around the International travel hubs whereby; large number of immigrant gathers. It is an absurd story for the U.S Justice Department, giving estimates of individuals trafficked in the country annually rather; than solving the issue. Results show that young kids and teenagers are the core victims in sex trafficking whereby; they are always at risk every year. Further, it is an obvious that the trafficking business especially on women has become one of the largest developing criminal businesses globally. According to the United Nations reports, over 3 million innocent souls are trades against their will, to work in form of servitude (Christensen, Erika & Jude 56- 93). I tend to wonder whether the activity is legalized since, it happens each day in United States at alarming rates. Human beings are therefore sold for many different reasons which includes; sex exploitation as well as forced into pornography business. Does the sex trafficking commerce go unnoticed in America? It is a difficult question to answer considering that the criminal business takes place every single day. However, Alverez suggests that the law has struggled with the issue and, it has not been easy to solve since many cases goes unreported. She further writes in her article that people trafficked fears reporting since, they assumes that they are the criminals (Priscilla 1). I find the argument unreliable because, many victims are forced into the business thus; the law must act in protecting them rather than pointing figures on them. Yes, United States has the largest number of victims in sex trafficking business whereby, over 80 percent of both women and children are exploited every year (Higgins, Jeff & Christopher 56-102).

Body

In my position, the government should take trafficking business serious, by prohibiting it as well as implicating punishment acts over such exploitations. The Human Right department seems to be more concerned with the statistics of individual's at risk annually rather; than putting more emphasis on solutions to eradicating it. However, many victims in the business are engaged to false pretense whereby; most of them are the immigrants "Young girls come to the country due to political instability in their nation (Priscilla 1)." Additionally, the U.S department is not doing enough in eliminating this act because, research indicates that it is the enticing destination globally, mostly for young poor girls from other countries. It is a higher responsibility for the federal government to take serious attention on sex commercial business, especially by saving young girls who are enticed into this activity by eagle men. Research shows apart from the kidnapping incidents, many individuals gets in sex commercial business over desperation of poverty. Further, it is a federal role to act over poverty issues as well as education in various areas such as; Chicago, Dallas as well as New Yolk where the illegal business is easily practiced (Christensen, Erika & Jude 41). I find it unfair for the harbor laws aimed at protecting minority, taking actions over blaming the victims especially adults thus; implicating fear on them by making them feel like criminals. However, it is obvious that many in the business are not in a position to seeking help from the authority because; recruiters make them feel as the criminals in the activity "Victims of this criminal acts feels the shame of reporting the incident." Additionally, the criminal act goes unnoticed by the law since there are fewer reports as compared to statistics of trafficking annually (Priscilla 1). Sex trafficking thereby; becomes a powerful play where violation silences victims over their own life. Sex trafficking industry creates a new life for both girls as well as women whereby; it becomes difficult for them to escape. As the fastest growing form of commerce in United States, sex trade is unique as compared to drugs because victims are able to make higher profits for traffickers severally. However, they are highly exposed into adverse harsh conditions over their health that, possibly affects their physical, mental as well as emotional fitness. Further, I find the sex business as the major cause of higher increase rates of sexual transmitted disorders in the States which are known to be prevalent. With such results it is obvious that sex trafficking victims are tortured as well as abused thus, it should be an essential obligations for healthcare providers, to perform screening activities on young girls and women. Individual's health is an important aspect for the government in every nation thereby; despite the difficulties faced in finding solutions to ending sex trafficking, it is important in providing public health care for both girls and women. Naha A Deshpande's article is right while implicating on how victims of sex business, are in critical situation of trauma as a result of mental as well as emotional abuse. Note that sex trafficking involves physical abuse thus; it is genuine for victims to suffer various injuries such as concussions. Despite the Senate holding Back-page site as the largest platform for sex trafficking advertisement in 2016, records from National Center for Missing Children indicated an increased number in the trafficking business (Nahe & Nawal 1). However, it has not been easy in solving this issue whereby; the advanced social media such as Snap-chat, vine as well as Kik have become a better place for traffickers to lure desperate as well as determined ladies. According to the Atlantic journal, there was a confession over seventeen year old girl, who was tempted into the sex business via Face-book where she found it hard to escape, "After high school I connected with the gentleman who introduced me into the business." Despite the young girl having a better life with her family, she ended up ruined, toured and shameless (Priscilla 1). However, I would urge parent to protect their children through prayers as well as monitoring their every move; especially on their friends in social media.

Conclusion

In conclusion, I will answer the question yes, the Sex Trafficking activity have gone unnoticed in America, probably because victims are silenced thus; no reports over the incidents. However, it is difficult in identifying traffickers, despite the State order of their prosecution. The U.S Justice Department; giving estimates to individuals trafficked in the country annually rather; than solving the issue. Results show that young children and women are the core victims in sex trafficking whereby; they are always at risk every year. Further, the law must take serious action over the issue before it is too late, by promising victims full protection over pimps. Sex commercial is a multifaceted threat which requires an inclusive loom, which includes prosecution of the crime offenders as well as protection measures over the abducted individuals. Further, the U.S department is not doing enough in eradicating the act because, research indicates that it is the enticing destination globally, mostly for young poor girls from other countries (Nichols 35). It is a higher responsibility for the federal government to take serious attention on sex commercial business, especially by saving young girls who are enticed into this activity by eagle men.
