Migrants and Trafficking: The Vulnerability of Movement

Migration and Trafficking: The Vulnerability of MovementS.J. Quinney College of Law in collaboration with the Tanner Center for Human Rights , Friday, Feb. 1, 2019 

Migrants have taken a prominent place on the public stage in recent years, from divided political rhetoric on status of migrants in the United States, to news of migrant caravans traveling to the U.S. from South America, to the changing landscape of immigration law in the country, such as the upheaval of asylum availability or family separation at the border. These individuals are at significant risk for trafficking. Many are lured into migration by promise of employment, safety, or legitimate status in the country of immigration. Others are victims of crime such as kidnapping or sex crimes.
