Coming to America to make a better life has long been a dream of
many from around the world. In the past, immigration was easier,
but not so any longer. Now, many foreign nationals must be smuggled
into the U.S. in order to gain entry. In addition, various criminal
groups from around the world traffic people against their will to
the U.S. for the purposes of sexual exploitation, slavery, and
other underground illicit purposes. The problem is especially
dangerous for vulnerable groups like women and children from poor
nations.; This book examines how human smuggling and trafficking
activities are carried out and explores the legal and policy
challenges in dealing with these problems. The author covers the
scope and patterns of global human trafficking and smuggling
activities; major smuggling methods and routes; the human smuggling
trade; the involvement of organised criminal organisations in
transnational human smuggling activities; and challenges
confronting governments in combating these activities. This book
focuses on the illicit venues and strategies employed by groups of
entrepreneurs as well as criminal organisations in gaining entry
into the U.S. and the distribution of their activities (e.g.,
illegal immigration, the sex trade, and the slave trade).
