This series of investigations revealed that in the last four years, officials have prosecuted five cases of slavery in Southwest Florida and that an estimated 20 to 50 thousand people a year are smuggled into the U.S. as indentured servants. These "slaves" are abused or mistreated and many women are forced into prostitution. Some women are tricked into coming into America under the illusion that they are being recruited as models.
