Excerpt from Term Paper :

Unlike the transatlantic slave trade, they are not being recruited to work in any specific geographical area or any clearly defined industry or economy. True, many of the women are sold as prostitutes or concubines, and the children as labourers, but there are relatively few established and stable routes and markets. While the transatlantic slave trade was legal and carried on as a form of legitimate commerce, the modern slave trade is illegal. Records of these underground business transactions are largely hidden from public view; so are the human beings who are bought and sold in this twenty-first-century slave trafficking. The pervasiveness and the relatively invisible nature of this illegal trafficking make it difficult to define and develop a strategy for abolishing it.

Dodson 28)

Actions of Mexico:

As this work has previously stated there are several innate problems associated with ideology surrounding prostitution, as well as illegal immigration with regard to Mexico. There are vocal outcries to change the economic and social situation in Mexico, which would by default address the scale of the problem of sex trafficking across borders, but this is of coarse easier said than done. Until Mexico has a stable and livable economy actions on the part of government, no matter how well intended will not seriously alter the issue of sexual slavery, illegal immigration, sexual trade immigration or human trafficking in general. Even with new regulations and enforcement of laws resulting from terrorism, getting out of Mexico is still relatively easy and getting in is even easier, so the increase in human trafficking that is likely to occur as well as the relatively liberal laws regarding prostitution will likely create an even bigger problem, in Mexico than already exist and in the very near future.

Action in the Global Environment:

Undocumented immigration, again is illegal in most

...

Though the global market in other things can be linked to human progress (or human deterioration in some cases) the globalization of human trafficking, and the sex trade makes the issue an indefinable and therefore difficult one to conquer in any meaningful way, and we thought eradicating legal slavery was a difficult social transition.

Organized crime presents certain unique challenges for law enforcement in the 21st century. As noted by Bjelopera & Finklea (2012) in their report to Congress on the history of organized criminal activity in the United States, modern organized criminal networks tend to be more fluid and less hierarchical than organized associations of the past. Organized crime networks are also more apt to outsource critical aspects of their operations, which can
