Human Trafficking Statistics by State 2021

What is human trafficking? Human trafficking is a seriouscrime and violation of human rights, involving force, coercion, or fraud to exploit a person into slave labor or sexual exploitation.

Human trafficking can happen to people of all ages and genders and any race or religious background. Women are often used for sexual exploitation, while men are usually used for forced labor. It is believed that one in five human trafficking victims are children, exploited for begging, child pornography, or child labor.

According to the Bureau of Justice, of the human trafficking cases reported between January 2008 and June 2010, sex trafficking victims were more likely to be white (26%) or black (40%), compared to labor trafficking victims, who were more likely to be Hispanic (63%) or Asian (17%).

Victims frequently do not seek help due to language barriers, fear of their traffickers, or fear of law enforcement. Because human trafficking is considered a hidden crime, several key indicators can help people recognize potential endangerment and notify law enforcement. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime has a list of indicators you can use to help identify victims. These indicators include:

  • Appearing malnourished
  • Appearing injured or having signs of physical abuse
  • Avoiding eye contact, social interaction, and law enforcement
  • Responding in manners that seem rehearsed or scripted
  • Lacking personal identification documents
  • Lacking personal possessions

A common misconception about human trafficking is that it does not happen in the United States. This is false, as the United States is ranked as one of the worst countries globally for human trafficking. It is estimated that 199,000 incidents occur within the United States every year.

The National Human Trafficking Hotline has one of the most extensive data sets on human trafficking in the United States collected through phone calls, texts, online chats, emails, and online tips received by the Hotline. While this information is some of the most comprehensive available, the data does not define the totality of human trafficking. The number of cases presented is only the cases that are reported.

The Human Trafficking Hotline serves victims and survivors of human trafficking across the United States. The Hotline is available 24/7, 365 days a year, and in more than 200 languages. The confidential Hotline helps any person of any age, religion, race, language, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability. To contact the Hotline to report a tip, seek services, or ask for help, dial 1-888-373-7888. Hearing and speech-impaired individuals should dial 711. You can also send an SMS text to 233-733 or start a live chat on their website.

In 2019, the United States had 11,500 human trafficking cases reported. The most common type of trafficking was sex trafficking (8,248 reports), with the most common venues being illicit massage/spa businesses and pornography.

States with the Highest Human Trafficking Numbers

California consistently has the highest human trafficking rates in the United States, with 1,507 cases reported in 2019. 1,118 of these cases were sex trafficking cases, 158 were labor trafficking, and 69 were both sex and labor. The remaining cases were not specified. Most of the sex trafficking cases reported in California were illicit massage and spa businesses and hotel or motel based. Of the cases reported, 1,290 were female, 149 were male, and 10 were gender minorities.

This is followed by Texas with 1,080 cases, Florida with 896 cases, and New York with 454 cases. These four states with the highest human trafficking rates have the highest populations in the U.S., which can explain why their numbers of cases are significantly higher than other states and very high immigrant populations. This, combined with certain industries such as agriculture, creates prime environments for forced labor.

Here are the 10 states with the highest rates of human trafficking:

  1. Nevada (7.50 per 100k)
  2. Mississippi (4.99 per 100k)
  3. Florida (4.08 per 100k)
  4. Georgia (3.85 per 100k)

Author's note at the end of each post: -"Your biggest problem is so small for such a big God"-Ella Cruz" The Bible is the blueprint of Faith. The New Testament has given us God’s kind of faith and the authority to perform miracles through faith and the name of Jesus. No matter what level of cancer you are; you can be healed by your faith and the word of God. Jesus did not care in what stage of death were the three people whom he raised from the dead. He just called life on them. Let see how He did it. "The first time he invaded the realm of death it was for the daughter of Jairus; an official in Jerusalem. She was “just” dead. The second time it was the son of a widow in Nain who was “one day” dead, and the third time it was Lazarus; brother of Mary and Martha in Bethany who was “very” dead after three days. HE raised them “all.” It doesn’t matter how big is your problem, and how hopeless you are because Jesus is the resurrection and the light."-Ella Cruz World's events are happening so fast. Putting Global Governance 2015, Agenda 2030, Agenda 2050, Antarctica, Mars, CERN, G5, The United Nations, The European Union, the Club of Rome, and the false prophets of the Vatican all together, we see that the satanic global government is imminent and it shall come to pass. The mark of the beast will be obligatory. You are either a Christian and believe this because this is what was predicted 2000 years ago in the Bible, or you are not a Christian but you read all these articles and connect the dots to notice that the satanic world government is their agenda and with President Trump, we had 4 years and this was God's mercy on us. Their Global Governance 2025 is terribly close. Their Green New Deal's 12 years matches the agenda 2030. The immigration and devouring of America and Europe all go according to the blueprint of one world satanic government. We have a short time to prepare ourselves. Why are we, born-again Christians happy and calm? Why do we joyfully dedicate ourselves to the nation, knowing that we will be chased and prosecuted for NOT taking the mark of the beast? Because we are dedicated to the Kingdom. "Your kingdom come, Your will be done." 1- We believe Jesus Christ is the son of the Living God. 2- We believe the Bible is the word of God. 3-We believe God had so much loved us that HE sent his only begotten son to die on the cross for our sins. Through his blood, all our sins are washed away and forgiven. 4- We believe the price of our salvation, health, prosperity, happiness, and eternal life is paid by the blood of Jesus. We have all these gifts in us when we are born again by GRACE. By his stripes, we are healed 2000 years ago. 5-We believe by accepting Jesus Christ as our savior, we open our hearts to the Holy Spirit. We are baptized by the Holy Spirit who will dwell in us and will reveal Himself through dreams, visions, speeches, videos, books to communicate with us, immediately after our Salvation. 6- We believe Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. We believe born-again believers receive the same DNA as Jesus Christ with the same miraculous abilities through faith. Just as the Apostles performed the same signs and wonders as our Lord Jesus did. They did it through "faith," and The Lord will accomplish the same miracles through us after we accept him as our savior. 7-We condemn the religion and many fake prophets of the Vatican (not all of our Catholic brothers and sisters) who deceived Christians for centuries and hid the true message of the Bible and the Good News from people to keep themselves in power. We welcome all denominations. 8- We believe that a born-again Christian never dies and the moment his life on earth is terminated, he is promoted to heaven. There is no death for us. We just transit to our new dimension which is filled with immerse, joy, love, peace, and glory of God. All people who have met Jesus in a visit, vision, dream, or have died for a short time, left their body and came back, know how does this experience feel. It is a divine relief and joy. Therefore, to answer the above question (why are we happy?), our answer is, we can happily die right now. In fact, we would love to die yesterday and go home but each one of us has a mission and purpose that the Holy Spirit has revealed to us after our born-again experience. For the sake of that mission, although we know our day of prosecution will come, we are joyful and relaxed in the spirit. Because we save people by preaching the Gospel and bringing them to Jesus. To be born again, you just need to say: Lord Jesus, I accept you as my personal savior, Come to my heart, Forgive my sins, Wash me away, Make me a new person, And live inside of me. In the Name of Jesus from Nazareth, Amen. And that's it. You are saved. He will reveal himself to you. Your life will dramatically change. Your marriage, your health (especially addiction), your finances, and all areas of your life will experience this extraordinary change. And never look back. In Jesus Almighty name. Amen.
