American Child Exploitation

Decent Essays
An overwhelming increasing amount of American children are trafficked into the national and international sex industry. In 1995, the United States government shaped a task force with representatives from federal agencies and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The task force was accountable for originating research about the sexual exploitation of children and was contributory in improving and modifying legislation to contain stricter penalties for perpetrators, culminating in 2000 with the passing of TVPA. Many of the domestic victims of sexual exploitation are susceptible youth on the street or from the foster care organization or ones who previously had a fight with parents trying to find a way out.
