Even the briefest glance at the personal columns of city newspapers shows there's been a big boom in Asian-themed massage parlors. And that reflects the nature of human trafficking in Southern Nevada. Elsewhere undocumented migrants are lured with offers of work but end up in sweat shops and domestic service. In Las Vegas, most victims end up working in the sex industry. Once ensconced in that trade, victims find it difficult to break out - physically, financially and psychologically. We talk with members of the Human Trafficking Task Force and the FBI, which is leading the fight against human trafficking.

Guests include:
Kathleen Bergquist, Associate Professor at School of Social Work, UNLV
Courtney Corbett, FBI Special Agent
Stacey Cramer, Program Dir of the Salvation Army's network of emergency trafficking victims services
