Nobodies, Modern Day Slavery in the U.S.

"As it is, 12 to 27 million people are enslaved around the world today. Most are women and children. How many slaves are there in the United States? Impossible to say. The CIA has estimated that 50,000 women and children are brought to the country each year as sex slaves; many more are trapped doing agricultural, garment and domestic work. Bowe spoke with a few of them."
