Mexican Humans Trafficked

The PGR released a report that says that roughly 20,000 Mexicans are annually sent against their will to Russia, Europe, and the United States, where they are often subjected to sexual exploitation upon arrival. The report fingers the Zetas as playing a big role in this practice. More than 60 percent are adult women, while children make up a third of the number. Assuming the findings are essentially valid, I'm surprised that this isn't more of a scandal. We're talking about 6,000 kids a year!
