In the news: Tennessee trafficking bill, Northern Ireland report, more

 Tennessee governor signs bills to fight human trafficking

Tennessee’s governor is following other states in the fight against human trafficking by singing into law bills that would combat the issue, KnoxNews.com reports.

The new legislation will help to establish a hotline in the state for victims or witnesses to report suspected cases of human trafficking. The bills also strengthen penalties against individuals who promote the prostitution of minors.

Supporters of the bills say that the bills help call attention to modern-day slavery in the United States.

"Thousands of children, teenagers and women inTennesseeare bought and sold as slaves, and most of us have no idea it's happening," Sen. Beverly Marrero (D-Memphis) said. "These new laws will help victims and punish offenders, but hopefully they will also raise awareness of this crisis."

A recent study conducted by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation revealed that 78 counties inTennessee had reported at least one case of sex trafficking. 

Canadian couple charged with human trafficking 

A Canadian couple has been charged with illegally smuggling a Filipino woman into the country and then forcing her to work for them as a domestic servant and nanny, reports CTV.com.

"The woman was forced into domestic servitude and was working 24 hours a day, allegedly seven days a week, caring for the family," Jana McGuinness of the Vancouver Police said at a press conference. 

According to Jane Ordinario, a worker from MigranteBC, the nanny, like some other Filipina women who work in the country, was subject to deplorable conditions. “She was emotionally distraught,” Ordinario told the Toronto Sun. “She’s overworked, paid minimum wage and not able to take a day off to see her peers or fellow Filipinos. That’s what she was crying over when we met her.”

The couple is currently facing charges for human smuggling and trafficking under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, according to the Toronto Sun.

Report: Modern-day slavery an issue in Northern Ireland

New research revealed that a small number of migrants in Northern Ireland were working in modern-day slavery conditions, the BBC reports.

The research showed that modern-day slavery was more so linked to migrants' vulnerability from their lack of communication skills rather than gender, age or nationality.

Conducted between  June 2009 and December 2010, the research is the first to investigate the scale and extent of forced labor in Northern Ireland.

    Before we try to stop human slavery in other countries, we need to stop it in our own!'s It's pretty bad when the president of the world bank has slaves. And what about Nike, Wal-mart, and the Gap? They all use slave labor if not in this country then other countries where they can't be caught!

    Human Traffiking? What is that? What are people thinking? Women and children humiliated over and over again! People don't have any respect for anything anymore! Now they have poor people waiting on their dumb, fat asses for minimal wages, crappy conditions, and of course they are not treated like human beings! I hope they don't start talking about their Christian family values, and other hypocritical statements..this is out ofcontrol and we need to have somewhere for these people to go when convicted!! Game Over! Don't ever let them out!
