Thank you for making this a national and global priority. I am hopeful that we are going after the individuals who "purchase" these, the most vulnerable people..women, children, the desperately poor, and enslave them for their own despicable purposes. There would be no trafficking in people if there were no buyers. It is beyond evil. Please continue the good work you have begun. We must eradicate this cruel and shameful practice. Actually, words to describe this crime fail me. Again, thank you for bringing it to the attention of the world.

The main problem is job! In ex SFR of Yugoslavia everyone had a job and chance to get job,when finished school,and ex Yugoslavia had no slaves and trafficking.Because social problems were solved on best way.It was the best thing in that country.
