Illegal Immigration And Human Trafficking: It's Time To Get Serious
Centuries ago we gradually came to a halt in slave trading. Seeing human being as commodities of equal standing with other items of trade remains a repulsive thought. And it is a disheartening part of our history as humans. Sadly, the extent of this form of trade happened more in Africa, known as the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. Slaves taken from the continent became the workforce in the agricultural fields of Europe and America. And today they have become the black community in these places.
Examlpe is the African Americans. But beyond the Trans-Atlantic slave trade there existed others. According to Britannica, ‘slavery has existed throughout the world since ancient times, and trading in slaves has been equally universal. Enslaved persons were taken from the Slavs and Iranians from antiquity to the 19th century, from the sub-Saharan Africans from the 1st century CE to the mid-20th century, and from the Germanic, Celtic, and Romance peoples during the Viking era.’ One of the notable slave traders is Pedro Blanco from Spain. We have been told of Edward Colston too, and others. All is now in the past. But modern slave trading, and slavery, is still around with us.
One major source of this occurrence is illegal immigration. Illegal immigration has remained a desperate move being undertaken by many individuals. Some of the reasons why people desperately seek to relocate from their homeland could include, but not limited to; economic reasons, social reasons, environmental reasons, religious/political persecution, and wars/conflicts. As illegal immigrants make their way through rough circumstances with the help of smugglers they are ignorant of what awaits them in their destination of interest. They aren’t away that most governments in developed countries don’t permit illegal and undocumented immigrants to obtain privileges in their society. As this happens human traffickers see an opportunity to exploit the vulnerable immigrants, trading them for gain. These immigrants helplessly fall victims to the heartless conducts of human traffickers who subject them to forced labour or into prostitution. This vulnerable group are not finding life easy abroad. And sadly, their ordeals are scarely taken seriously by their home governments or the host governments.
Also, few persons are being prosecuted for human trafficking crimes yearly. Things must not be allowed to continue this way. Yes we can’t stop people from moving out to seek for the good life but the decision to migrate mustn’t be taken on the basis of mere sentiments. Further, governments must begin to take development as a priority. If the countries in the 3rd world category had shown the commitment to produce a prospering economy within their territories we wouldn’t be having a thriving human trafficking business. The fight against human exploitation must be taken seriously, and it begins with reducing illegal migration.
Human trafficking can have an effect physically, psychologically and economically on anyone involved (Fair Trade Winds, 2014). This major criminal enterprise has the power to impact someone’s life forever. Sexual exploitation in human trafficking is, ‘the recruitment, harbouring, transportation of persons whom under threat, force, coercion, fraud, deception or abuse of power are sexually exploited for the financial gain of another’ (End Slavery Now, 2019). It is currently a major global issue, seen as under the guise of ‘modern slavery’....

There are myriad circumstances and actors at play in perpetuating the heinous commodification of human beings through human trafficking. Despite the grimness of that reality, hopefully in understanding the diversity of those circumstances, it will be possible to create more effective, adaptive and tailored responses to curtail its prevalence. Human trafficking and smuggling often follow an already existing flow of human movement, so it is critical to address the factors that draw people away from some areas and toward others....
