What is Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC)?
A declaration of the World Congress against Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children, held in Stockholm in 1996, defined CSEC as:
“Sexual abuse by the adult and remuneration in cash or kind to the child or a third person or persons. The child is treated as a sexual commercial object for the purposes of buying, selling, or trading sexual services globally.”
CSEC may involve coercion and violence against children and amount to forced labor and a form of contemporary slavery as well as offering the sexual services of children for compensation, financial or otherwise.
What is Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking (DMST)?
Also defined as the commercial sexual exploitation of children through buying, selling, or trading their sexual services in the United States.
Forms of CSEC and DMST include forced prostitution, pornography, stripping and other sexual and perversion acts.
What is Human Trafficking?
Human Traffickers are a gang of thieves. Where do they get the girls from?
In various ways, such as the personal columns. They round up young girls who are attracted by promises of luxury, trip to a foreign country with all expenses paid, guarantee of an easy job, and then they are shipped out. And when they land they get the low down.
Some of the children and teens are lured or snatched from public areas and from their private homes. Some of them will work as hostesses and dancers in strip clubs if they are attractive enough. Others go into the best families as domestic servants. They’re told what to do and they do it. If they rebel or talk, they disappear permanently. We believe we will find many of the USA missing children and teens in South America. Many of them are shipped to the US from Mexico, the Philippines, and Central America.
Human trafficking is a hidden crime as victims rarely come forward to seek help because of language barriers, fear of the traffickers, and/or fear of law enforcement.
