In the 21st Century there is no excuse for human trafficking.  We need to take strong steps to eliminate this kind of criminal behavior.  Most human trafficking is for domestic help, factory labor, and sex slaves.

This is an intolerable, and disgraceful crime.  We need to have strict laws against human trafficking.  First time offenders should be in prison for a minimum of five years, and I think a unique sentencing would be appropriate.  Put the traffickers in prison for as long as the prisoners they hold have been slaves.  If they had five slaves for two years each, then add ten additional years to their sentences. 

This is one further symptom of our failure to control our borders.  Slaves are brought into this country and their immigration status is seldom brought into question.  Better control of our borders would be another way we can reduce the incidence of this crime, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
