SPEAKING OF
IMMIGRANT POLICY

"To comprehensively improve how labor trafficking crimes are identified and responded to, our study recommends four courses of action: close loopholes in labor and immigration laws; implement coordinated efforts between law enforcement agencies and the Department of Labor to identify, investigate, and prosecute cases; increase housing, job training, and other services for victims; and enhance outreach to a public largely unaware that crimes resembling slavery take place in America."

Urban Institute & Northeastern University, Understanding the Organization, Operation, and Victimization Process of Labor Trafficking in the United States, October, 2014 xviii.
