In its worst manifestation, human trafficking is akin to modern-day slavery. Victims pay to be illegally transported into the United States only to find themselves in the thrall of traffickers. They are forced into prostitution, involuntary labor and other forms of servitude to repay debts – often entry in the United States. In certain cases, the victims are mere children. They find themselves surrounded by an unfamiliar culture and language without identification documents, fearing for their lives and the lives of their families. ICE is serious about ending human trafficking.”   For more information about the role of ICE to end human trafficking, visit …

 Listen LIVE: http://therothshow.com Join Dr. Laurie Roth and Susan Murphy Milano each Wednesday BROADCASTING AT A NEW TIME!  8-9 Pacific, 11-12am Eastern Human Trafficking Cases Being Ignored?

Dottie Laster: Holding the Department of Justice Accountable for Neglecting Victims of Human Trafficking

Trying diligently to unlock the system within the United States Department of Justice and the FBI, Dottie Laster, who works with the Bernardo Kohler Center assisting victims of human trafficking, finds herself in a precarious situation. Working with Brandon Darby, a former FBI informant, Laster and Darby presented dozens of cases of human trafficking to the agencies, following all the necessary protocols set forth, only to meet resistance to investigate, or complete complacency. Brandon Darby has written the full account of the experience in the latest edition of Town Hall Magazine, a monthly conservative news magazine, explaining in detail the shift in priorities within the FBI and his conclusions as to why human trafficking cases are being ignored. Darby exposes problems which arise between law enforcement agencies and ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) and how by ICE agents rolling into an ongoing investigation, critical evidence is often lost and traffickers walk free with little consequence because of it, causing law enforcement agencies to back away from needed investigations, thus perpetuating the cycle. Darby goes on …
