International News Coverage of Human Trafficking Arrests and Prosecutions: A Content Analytic Study
Unformatted Document Text:  false employment offers. A trafficked individual will think that he or she is travelling to the destination country for employment as a server, dancer, domestic worker, labourer, and so on, and only upon arrival realize the exploitation they will face.

However, the committed acts did not pertain to trafficking offences and the trafficking legislation was invoked as a way to avoid simple deportation of an illegal immigrant.
