What happens to people who escape from human trafficking places?

User Avatar
What happens to them is determined by almost only: whom they meet, next: is it a kind person who can help them escape further, or will their needs be ignored (needs = clothes, food, shelter, medicines, fluids, education); or is the next person someone who is going to throw them back into human trafficking? If someone wishes to know what to do for those ones who are escaping: read in the Bible "The Parable of the Good Samaritan". Perhaps a telephone call to a Samaritans organisation, or "Helpline", to find real help, too, e.g. Women's Refuges. If the person suddenly finds the next person is in the employ of the slavedrivers, then the situation is much worse, much worse, for the one who escaped.

Why did the US slave States illegally import slaves after 1808?

User Avatar
Although the importation of slaves was forbidden by law after 1808, smugglers continued the trade on an increasing scale. By the middle of the 19th Century slaves could be purchased by slave dealers for as little as $15 per slave. In the United States, slave States, including ones that chose not to secede in 1861, and remained part of the Union, might pay as much as $1500 for an illegally imported slave. Many ships involved in the slave trade such as the French brig Vigilante, had special hidden cargo sections built into their hulls to hide their illegal cargo. Other places in the Western Hemisphere was slave trading was still legal after the US ban of 1808, remained free from this embargo.

Have people other than Africans ever been slaves?

In addition to the expert answer by Cassandra it should be noted that human trafficking - which is just slavery under another name - is still a major problem in the world. It includes people lured with job offers and then, once their passport is confiscated, become slaves instead of employees working as domestic servants, in restaurants & clubs, in factories, and in agriculture. With no proof of identity or nationality, they are threatened with criminal punishment for being there illegally. Commonly there are language barriers that prevent them from reporting their situation to local authorities. Many only know the corruption of the police where they come from and are easily duped into believing that they will be in bigger trouble with the law if the DO report their abuse. Sometimes the threats are real because of corruption in local and national law enforcement. They are often threatened with violence against themselves and their families. It includes those lured by job offers, sold by their families, or outright abducted and subsequently locked in brothels and beaten if they don't bring in enough money from "customers". Almost half of the victims of human trafficking are trapped in some kind of prostitution or other sex work. Some become slaves through "debt bondage" where they are placed into a situation of having a debt that they cannot repay and are forced or tricked into signing a contract that they will work to pay off the debt - but the terms make it impossible for them to ever actually pay it off. The slave masters demand that the debts are passed on from one generation to the next - enslaving the descents of the initial victims who don't realize that such debts cannot be passed on. Often even the initial debts are fraudulent but the victims don't have the knowledge and resources to defend themselves. While there are still many Africans who fall into modern slavery, the significant majority of victims now are now from Eastern Europe, the Middle-East, South & Central America, China, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Southeast Asia.

What sustains human trafficking?

User Avatar
Quite simply it is the failure of all Governments to ensure Global Databases which can be used to trace track and locate activity related to human trafficking are on a common platform in every Country of the World. The Database set would include financial transaction, shipping movement and known persons and their community relationships. Human Trafficking has to be financed and the numbers are not small. The funds must cross borders and at some point must be removed from its 'ghost system' into the 'real system'. Our Governments are weak, soft and unwilling to confront a growing problem. Until we have principled 'tough on crime Governments' women and children continue to suffer and when they are of no further use they will be murdered and in some cases their body parts will be sold. A lot of people make money out of the pain and misery of the women and children and men too who are trafficked. We need a Global Platform to collect information and tough Governments to use the information to arrest those concerned. Unfortunately we have neither.

What does the bible say about human trafficking?

User Avatar
Simply put; it's okay, but you should be punished for killing slaves, and should give slaves their freedom if you break their teeth or blind them (this is not a nice thing to do). Slaves must be circumcised. You must free slaves who have served you for six years, and they may keep their wives if they had them to begin with, but their wives and children will belong to you upon the slave's release if the wife was given by you. Either way, you must be sure to give them a nice retirement bonus on their way out. Women are fair spoils of war! Having killed heathen men, their women, children, and livestock are yours for the taking. You may have your way with the women as you like, but if they are engaged to another, then you must atone by having a priest sacrifice an animal (small price to pay for institutionalised rape). Should you find an escaped slave, you are not permitted to oppress them or to force them to return to their master. If enslaving your own family members, you should treat them better than the average slave. Slaves may have their own slaves. The punishment for enslaving Hebrews is death.
