Belizean Creole Girl, victim of human trafficking in the U.S.A.

According to the United Nations, nearly two point five million people from one hundred and twenty-seven countries are being trafficked around the world. The annual revenue derived from trafficking in persons is estimated to be in the billions. It is a brisk trade and victims are often sorted into categories of bonded labor, forced labor and sex trafficking.  Bonded labor, or working to pay a debt, is often whispered to be very prominent in the immigrant population of certain cultures in Belize but convictions for the crime are rare. In the following report, ABC News chronicles the life of a twenty-three year old Belizean woman who has been a victim of forced labor for over a decade in the U.S.
