Study Finds Un-Reported Human Trafficking Wide-Spread in Mexico

Many Mexican migrants are falsely accused of human trafficking and face up to a 30 years in prison. Will they ever find justice? (Seeker Stories)

In Mexico, 82% of human trafficking victims are women and 42% are minors, according to the National Human Rights Commission (CNDH).

The director of the CNDH anti-trafficking program, Yuriria Álvarez Madrid, said that between 2012 and 2014, 182 people have been charged for trafficking, a crime that often goes un-reported.

A lack of understanding and strategies to combat trafficking at the three levels of government (local, state and national) make it difficult to address the issue, said Álvarez Madrid.

The analysis was carried out as part of the Freedom Without Tricks or False Promises national campaign, which brought together various organizations to combat trafficking.

The most common methods that human traffickers use to ensnare their victims are promising jobs in Mexico or foreign countries and engaging their victims in romantic relationships, said Miriam Peña Munguía, national coordinator of the anti-trafficking program of the Revolutionary Confederation of Workers and Campesinos (CROC).
