Today’s highly interesting read (02/28/19): In Robert Kraft Case, Don’t Forget Who the Real Victims Are

Today’s read is from Christine Flowers, an attorney and a columnist for the Philadelphia Daily News. She writes:

It appears that the women in question were sex slaves, trafficked into the United States with promises of legitimate jobs and forced to service men who either couldn’t, or didn’t want to, earn the affection of their “date.”

As an immigration attorney, I have met some of these women (because they are virtually always young, young women), and I can tell you that the look in their eyes is a cross between terror and emptiness….what Kraft is alleged to have done is disgusting, immoral, and criminal. It’s unfortunate that the laws make it worthy of only a few months in the cooler.
