International News Coverage of Human Trafficking Arrests and Prosecutions: A Content Analytic Study
Unformatted Document Text:  resulted in the trafficked individual’s deportation to their legal country of residence. Of the remaining 58% (n=35) of arrests in the United States, 57% (n=20) were for cases of exploitation, usually related to prostitution activities. The exploitation of trafficked individuals is key to understanding the trafficking offence because the status of victim is usually granted only to individuals who are exploited in some manner; however, the concept of exploitation, as assessed by this study, is subjective and tends to favour individuals who are sexually exploited, rather than the previously discussed modes of exploitation. This concept will be addressed in detail in later chapters of this study.
