Mexico's poor becoming victims of white slave trade

Over 2 months old, yet still relevant...Mexican Poverty Impels White Slavery.
Mexico, Feb 21 (Prensa Latina) Mexico, a country where poverty is currently affecting most of its nationals, has witnessed a 500 percent increase in the white slave trade over the last six years, social activist Teresa Ulloa affirmed here Tuesday.

In Mexico City alone, about 200,000 people are estimated to be sexually exploited, 99 percent through force or deception, abuse of authority, or a vulnerable condition, said Ulloa, president of the Regional Coalition against Female Trafficking in Latin America and the Caribbean.

She also noted that 85 percent of those sexually exploited were not born in the capital and are victims of white slavers.

A total of one million women and girls in Mexico are victims of prostitution, pornography, or sexual tourism; having been taken from their homes in poor zones to large urban cities and tourism resorts, Ulloa told La Jornada Daily.
