The dangers are especially acute for what officials say is a growing number of children and youths who cross into Mexico without adults. Many are kidnapped and made to work as prostitutes, with police and authorities turning a blind eye

I'm sure there are many people in Mexico that are trying to end this but unfortunately whatever is being done isn't working. There must be a way to end it NOW!

We have to do everything we can. All children and adolescence should be able to feel save wherever they go. Unfortunately our world is very evil. How sad!

This is an on-going saga of "the good, the bad, and the ugly." Unfortunately, the good are losing.

What a tragic commentary on Central America. I wish the article included countries most at fault.

If this doesn't illustrate how extremely sick some humans are, then nothing does. The act of forcing a child to have sex has got to be one of the most reprehensible acts imaginable, and I hope with all my heart that whoever's running the universe curses them to the hilt. Evil is running rampant, but only a small percentage of it is ever eradicated. This is almost more than the heart can bear.

this country and the rest of the world has this same problem. we need to reeducate lots of people that children should have a chance to grow up safely instead of being sex worker

Thanks to keep this vile subject on people's hearts and minds, the more it's discussed perhaps the more involvement and pressure to declare an end to this! Thanks Cal - very sad!

Child, sex, and trade are three words that should never appear in the same sentence. The scum of the earth will violate, abuse and exploit anyone or anything for money.

For as long as the supposed authority and protectors of these victims are deaf and blind of what is happening to these children and youth, the proliferation of such trade will never be eliminated...prayer is so powerful and this is what i do - to pray for those who are directly involved in countering these illegal activities and the victims that they may be freed from such bondage the soonest and eventually be able to go back in the social realm after being rehabilitated...

Children are the future of every nation. When they are abused, used, enslaved, trafficked, that is the future. No nation is immune. Every nation must stand up for their children, those in a society that are without enough power.

Sadly the sexual abuse is happening on BOTH sides of the border so both sides need to rectify immediately.

Those poor children, I really hope they can stop this.
Human life is so cheap in so many countries, it seems like women and children arent worth much to these people. Except to sell for sex. So many twisted perv's out there.

Terrible sexual abuse is everywhere, but if there was no Demand for this abuse it would not be.Sexual abuse is worse than murder, as the crime and pain is perpetrated many, many times and even when the actual abuse ceases.. I say life in prison with frugal sustinance and hard labour as of old chain gangs variety to all involved in this type of crime.
