UM: Human Trafficking

The Associated Press reports that an existing human trafficking law will be strengthened in Michigan on Friday as amendments take effect that would make punishments more severe for involuntary servitude, among other things. The article quotes Bridgette Carr, director of the University of Michigan Law School’s Human Trafficking Clinic: “In Michigan, we have seen victims in the U.P., in Detroit, in rural areas. We haven’t found a community yet that we haven’t seen a victim come from … That’s how prevalent it is.” [Source]
