“Oftentimes, when we hear ‘human trafficking,’ it’s easy for us to think of a very big city, and maybe the victims who were kidnapped from some foreign land and brought over here and forced to work in some sort of slave labor and prostitution.  But, unfortunately it’s not unusual to have individuals right here in the United States that are forced into this type of activity.”
