        From the FBI….over 800 cases a year…..I would bet immigrants legal or illegal would be way under reported…..

        Highlights:

        Federally funded task forces opened 2,515 suspected incidents of human trafficking for investigation between January 2008 and June 2010.
        About 8 in 10 of the suspected incidents of human trafficking were classified as sex trafficking, and about 1 in 10 incidents were classified as labor trafficking.
        The confirmed human trafficking incidents open for at least a year led to 144 known arrests.
