Child Slavery Imported to U.S.

By Remy Benoit

From the AP at MSNBC Child 'slavery' now being imported to U.S. One child's story speaks for the thousands locked in silent servitude.

This is an intolerable situation, here or anywhere else, as is sexual slavery. From The International Justice Mission Seek Justice.

We have to face the fact, and fact it is, that if there was no demand for slaves, sexual or otherwise, these things would not be happening. We have a Constitution that outlaws any kind of slavery. It is up to us to demand that it be honored, that those who violate this basic principle of human dignity face the full justice of the law.

If anyone's child can be enslaved by these perpetrators of such vileness, what makes us think that our children are safe from falling victim to it some day while out taking a walk?
