The Faith Alliance Against Slavery and Trafficking (FAAST) was established to help equip Christians to holistically respond to human trafficking. One of the avenues FAAST uses to do this is through encouraging public policies that may reduce the prevalence of human trafficking and other contemporary versions of slavery, both in the United States and internationally.
Given that immigrants represent a disproportionate share of the victims of both sex trafficking and labor trafficking within the United States, FAAST has assembled this new brief to examine the reasons that foreign-born individuals are uniquely vulnerable to situations of human trafficking. It provides a number of immigration reform policy recommendations that would significantly reduce the incidence of human trafficking.
