The sex slaves next door: New form of trafficking invades US
MSNBC ^ | 3/24/2011 | Azriel James Relph

Posted on 04/04/2011 5:00:05 PM PDT by caldera599

Cristina was just 24 years-old, living in a rural farming village in Mexico, when Amador Cortes-Meza told her he was falling in love with her. He promised her marriage and a good job, and then brought her to the United States. But when she arrived in the Atlanta area, he physically abused her and forced her to work as a prostitute.

“That's when I realized he was not telling me the truth,” said Cristina (not her real name). “A man who loves a woman would not make them do that. I lived under his humiliation, I lived under the beatings, under the fear, there was nothing I could do.”

She is an example of an insidious form of slavery spreading across the United States – prostitution operations that traffic in women and children from Latin America.

In these operations, “closed-network” houses of prostitution cater to customers of a specific race or ethnicity, in this case, Hispanic women and Hispanic customers. One nonprofit anti-trafficking group labels them Latino Residential Brothels, or LRBs.

“That's when I realized he was not telling me the truth,” said Cristina ....

Not to be unkind, but if that's the extent of her perceptive abilities, prostitution may be her only option.

So he's a democrat politician.

I wonder what district he represents?

Blaming the victim is always so classy.

Just a misunderstanding between cultures, the important lesson we learn is that of cultural equivalency.

This is another free ticket to your citizenship papers, been going on since jorge bush started it. They just need to claim it, no one ever demands proof.

Free the oppressed, shoot the oppressors, especially the ones with tattoos on their necks and faces.

Pimps are pimps. This is what they do—sex slavery. I don’t see that the illegal immigration angle adds or subtracts much.

So she was “just 24 years old”.

That sounds like an adult to me.

You’re right; these stories are to soften up public opinion for the amnesty announcement. What happened to this girl is terrible (if true); she made the decision to invade this country illegally, forfeiting any protections she enjoyed in Mexico as a Mexican citizen.

The sympathy has dried up; Americans are losing their country to people who make the choices this girl made. I was just in a business in a heavily Hispanic area, and couldn’t believe the number of women who were pregnant (I’m a breeder, and think it is one of the reasons God put us here). There were no wedding bands, and these people didn’t look like they were going to be supporting these children. This nonsense that their numbers are being driven up by continued immigration, without mentioning their birthrate (especially the out-of-wedlock birthrate) is absurd.

The true test is to tie the pimp in a chair and give the woman a straight razor. If the pimp survives she is lying. If he doesn’t she gets his money and car and gas money back to Mexico. Problem solved.

...better keep an eye on your kids, too, fellow Americans. Rackets like that tend to spread. And I wouldn’t be surprised, if it weren’t already happening. As you know, the favored constituents who control the politicians in both political parties long ago decided that our country will join the Third World.
