This article discusses the rise in trafficking in N.C. The numbers of victims have risen in NC. A high percentage of these girls are coming from Latin American countries. After being tricked by their trafficker thinking they have a job waiting them here (or whatever lie the trafficker told them), they are held in isolation and threatened. The trafficker’s threats grant them the ability to control their victim. That control makes the victim think that there family could be harmed if they leave, or even going to the law enforcement is of no help. Whatever lie has been told, they endure a fearful and abusive lifestyle. Authorities in NC have noticed the growing industry, and are working on ways to identify it and arrest traffickers.
