Regarding the July 18 article “Human-trafficking not addressed: U.N. envoy”: Although this story focused on Japan alone, I thought you may be interested in knowing that between 14,500 and 17,500 people are trafficked into the United States each year as well. They come from places all over the world like Asia, Africa, India, China, Latin America and more.
