Modern-day slavery is "Human Trafficking" and is a $32 billion industry affecting 27 million people worldwide, and is tied with arms dealing as the second largest criminal industry it the world. There are more people in slavery today than during the trans-Atlantic slavery period. Most shocking of all, these victims are not only foreigners, but United States citizens! There are approximately 200,000 U.S. children enslaved in America. Certain groups of children are susceptible to become victims of human trafficking. Children at the highest risk for trafficking are runaways, kidnapped children, children from broken homes and juvenile delinquents. In the United States, an estimated 300,000 children are at risk to become a victim of the human trafficking industry.
