Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It exists in a modern society because of (1) workers wanting to leave their homeland for a better life, (2) traffickers being able to take advantage of the desire of workers to get here, (3) a lack of serious funding of law enforcement, and (4) the fact that this all takes place in the shadow economy.  When we force people to sneak into the country, we create a market for human trafficking.

We can't stop them from coming to this country, but we can provide a situation in which trafficking is unnecessary, and we can provide oversight by funding our officers.  The CIW shouldn't have to investigate these cases.  We're supposed to have cops for that.  Until we fix those problems, the story will remain the same.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
