Hidden in Plain Sight: America's Slaves of the New Millennium by Kimberly Mehlman-Orozco

Rating: 5-Stars

Summary on Goodreads.

"What types of human trafficking crimes are being committed here in the United States? Who are the victims of traffickers? How do we all unknowingly consume the services and products of slavery? And why are human traffickers able to maintain their illicit operations with relative impunity--indeed, with less than .01 percent of human traffickers ever being held accountable for their crimes?..."

Very well written and researched. I'd have never thought that kids that go door-to-door selling might be subjects of human trafficking.

This book opened my eyes to different forms of human trafficking (some I knew). The saddest part is that the perpetrators rarely get convicted or get convicted for a very short time.

The book is easy to read.I wonder if this was the author's dissertation turned into a book? Very well done.
