Advocates of human-trafficking victims meet in Trenton

TRENTON - Victims of human trafficking and their advocates met on the steps of the state capitol building today in an effort to crack down on the crime.

They were gathered to mark the 10-year anniversary of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act. Some of the advocates said they were victims in the United States. Others said they were victims of trafficking in other countries, such as Rani Hong, who was a child slave in India.

Yesterday, three massage parlors in West Windsor were raided by police for alleged prostitution. According to The Trentonian, the business may have relied on slaves acquired through trafficking.
