International News Coverage of Human Trafficking Arrests and Prosecutions: A Content Analytic Study
Unformatted Document Text:  government employees. Six percent (n=8) of Incidents involved illegal immigrants. The region of arrest of the trafficker could not be determined for 19% (n=36) of incidents. The inability to determine region of arrest was usually a result of trafficker eluding arrest.
