It's sad but true: right here in this country, people are being bought, sold, and smuggled like modern-day slaves. They are trapped in lives of misery, often beaten, starved, and forced to work as prostitutes or to take grueling jobs with little or no pay. The victims include some of the most vulnerable in society: abused children who've run away from home, women with few job skills, immigrants who fear deportation or retaliation against their families overseas if they speak up. For them, there is little hope of escape.

They are trapped in lives of misery—often beaten, starved, and forced to work as prostitutes or to take grueling jobs as migrant, domestic, restaurant, or factory workers with little or no pay. We’re working hard to stop human trafficking—not only because of the personal and psychological toll it takes on society, but also because it facilitates the illegal movement of immigrants across borders and provides a ready source of income for organized crime groups and even terrorists.

Today we will share the legacies of two individuals who have put themselves on the frontlines in the fight against the crimes of drug and human trafficking.
Robert Mazur served 27 years as a Federal Special Agent for the IRS, Customs Service and Drug Enforcement Administration. Five of those years were spent under-cover as Bob Musella, a high-rolling mob-connected big shot who infiltrated the criminal hierarchy of Colombia’s drug cartels.
Bob’s under-cover stings proved critical in the conviction of General Manuel Noriega and helped cripple an international multi-billion money laundering outfit that served drug lords like Pablo Escobar. His new book, The Infiltrator, provides vivid and nail-biting details about his life in the criminal under-world, including events that led to a $500,000 contract being placed on his head.
More than three decades after India won freedom and independence from Great Britain, a little girl from the southern region of India was stolen from her family and became a slave. She was seven years old. She lost her home and her identity. She kept only her first name – Rani.
When Rani lost her value to her slave owner, he sold her to an American woman who thought she was legally adopting an orphan. This adoption saved Rani’s life and the love and support she received in her new home has cultivated a commitment to become an advocate for the voiceless victims of human trafficking and a leader in the movement to end modern slavery.
This evening we will be talking about the systems of abuse employed by CPS and APS, and how the courts are instrumental in the kidnapping and redistribution of our children, the disabled and the elderly, all for profit. Joining us from Texas will be Joni Saloom, whose son was taken from her as the result of a court proceeding that she was not notified was taking place.
"Joni didn’t learn, until months later by accident, that on Monday, May 07, 2012, Associate Judge Conrad Moren and Judge Lisa Millard switched “primary managing conservatorship” from Joni to Child’s adjudicated father without notice, without a hearing, and without a chance to present evidence or be represented by an attorney. Her son calls someone else “Mommy” and took classes on how to “grieve for the loss of his [real] ‘Mommy.’ . "
This is standard fair in these kangaroo, family and probate courts. These types of activities take place every day across America as our children are bought, sold and traded for money by state agencies. This is human trafficking. Just because an agency, an attorney or a bogus "court" is involved, makes it no less the crime that it is.
We are commodities.
Yvonne Williams' vision of Creating a Culture Free of Modern Day Slavery continues to be on the forefront and calls us to center on healing of the very fabric of our society. With the education surrounding areas fueling human trafficking, we must begin to reverse the effects of the onslaught into our lives over the past few decades and see where we can make adjustments that can indeed begin to reduce incidents of modern slavery.
As we work to educate about what human trafficking is, we must simultaneously bring healing to our minds and souls. That is the only way we will defeat human trafficking, modern day slavery.
Some of the topics we will talk about in the show are 1) Demand 2)Culteral Issues and Change and 3) The upcoming conference in July
