Facts

The United States is a primary destination country for children trafficked for sexual and labour exploitation.

Victims originate from almost every region of the world, especially Latin America and South East Asia.

The United States hosts a large number of websites containing child sexual abuse and exploitation material. Federal law on ‘child pornography’ prohibits the production, distribution, reception and possession of child sexual abuse and exploitation images.
