Sex trafficking in the USA hits close to home


     I just found this article and I had no idea what the extent of the problem of sex trafficking is. When we hear the phrase sex trafficking or human trafficking most of us think of a third world country problem; something that happens far away from our borders. While there are no national statistics in the U.S., it is estimated that 100,000 children are trafficked every year in our country.

      In this article you will find the story of Asia Graves, a 16 year old who ended up homeless, lured into prostitution and sold from one pimp to the next throughout many major cities in the U.S.
