Human Trafficking in America series

A series by The Kansas City Star explores the problem of human trafficking, and how the U.S. is failing in its promise to end trafficking and other human rights abuses.  Their investigation "found that, in spite of all the rhetoric from the Bush and Obama administrations, the United States is failing to find and help tens of thousands of human trafficking victims in America."  The investigation also found that the Kansas City area has emerged as a hub for human trafficking.  36 alleged traffickers have been prosecuted in western Missouri in the past three years — more than anywhere else in the U.S.
