ICE Charges 17 With Trafficking in Minnesota

Also in October, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations unit secured a federal indictment charging 17 members of an international sex trafficking organization with transporting hundreds of female sex slaves from Thailand and trafficking them throughout the U.S. Twelve people from Thailand and five U.S. citizens were charged. According to the indictment, since at least 2009 the criminal organization involved has trafficked at least hundreds of women, which the organization calls “flowers,” from Bangkok, Thailand, to various cities in the U.S., including Minneapolis, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Phoenix, Washington (D.C.), Las Vegas, Houston, Dallas, and Austin, among others.
