By By Michael LoccisanoPublished Apr 19, 2017 10:01:29At the heart of the ongoing debate about trafficking is a debate over whether human trafficking actually occurs.
And that debate is one that has taken place on and off for decades.
For the last decade, a growing number of scholars and advocates have raised questions about the degree to which traffickers are exploiting the labor force and the labor supply in the United States.
The debate began in earnest with the 2016 documentary, “Cage,” which focused on the work of the Center for Global Development, a U.S. non-profit that focuses on the exploitation of women and girls.
The film, which focused largely on the plight of Syrian and Nigerian migrant workers, ignited a public debate about the prevalence of trafficking and how the U.N. and human rights groups had failed to protect women and children in the country.
In its 2016 report, the CGE estimated that over 90 percent of the work force and 80 percent of labor supply for the world’s major economies are controlled by the traffickers.
The report also estimated that 1.4 billion people were enslaved globally in 2015, which the Cge estimated is more than double the number estimated in 2000.
The CGE, which was founded by two former State Department officials, John Bolton and Richard Holbrooke, is not the only organization that has argued forcefully that trafficking occurs.
Last year, the Center on National Policy, a conservative think tank in Washington, D.C., published a report that argued that the global sex trade is a multi-billion dollar industry that, despite efforts to curb the trade, continues to produce profits for traffickers and complicit countries.
In the film, the narrator, an actor named “Vincent,” argues that trafficking is an economic, not a social problem.
The narrator’s father was a member of the Lebanese Islamic Jihad, the organization that the film refers to as the “Islamic Resistance Front.”
He was captured and tortured in Lebanon and sent to Syria to work as a slave.
The narrator also claims that the Islamic State group, which has carried out atrocities against civilians, has exploited people in the global economy and the sex trade to finance itself.
The film was shot by a nonprofit organization called the Center to Combat Anti-Semitism, which is dedicated to combating anti-Semitism and other forms of racism.
The group’s website says that the filmmakers wanted to show how the trafficking of women, girls and other vulnerable groups is a major factor driving the rise of anti-Semitic hate groups around the world.
