WILMINGTON, NC, August 24, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to the International Labor Organization (ILO), forced labor alone (one component of human trafficking) generates an estimated $150 billion in profits per annum as of 2014. In 2012, the ILO estimated that 21 million victims are trapped in modern day slavery. Of these, 14.2 million (68%) were exploited for labor, 4.5 million (22%) were sexually exploited, and 2.2 million (10%) in state-imposed forced labor. The International Labor Organization has reported that child workers, minorities, and irregular migrants are at considerable risk of more extreme forms of exploitation.
Monica Deller, Founder and CEO of Trauma To Triumph Family Ranches, addressed human trafficking in an article posted to the Speak Out With Monica section of the Trauma To Triumph site. That article reads in part:
Texas, my home state is in the forefront of combating this hideous crime. In 2016 – in one of his first major initiatives – Attorney General Paxton formed the Human Trafficking and Transnational/Organizational Crime Section (HTTOC), tasked with combatting human trafficking across our state. There are 234,000 Victims of labor trafficking in Texas any given time. This section has already won significant battles against human traffickers, including developed and produced a powerful training video – designed to mobilize all Texans to "Be the One" in the fight against human trafficking.
Go to their site texasattorneygeneral.gov and watch the video, it is available in both English and Spanish… Prevent. Recognize. Report.
Texas ranks first in the nation By Drew Knight – kvue.com
According to a report from The Human Trafficking Institute, 74 criminal human trafficking cases made their way through federal courts in Texas last year.
Austin, Texas – The state of Texas has some work to do when it comes to human trafficking, according to a report from The Human Trafficking Institute.
The report, released Tuesday, shows Texas ranked first in the nation for the number of criminal cases that wound their way through the federal courts last year. Of those 74 cases, 68 involved sex trafficking and six involved labor trafficking.
Texas also ranked first for the number of new criminal human trafficking cases in 2018 with 19 initiated cases. That's well above the national average of five new cases per state or territory.
Of the new criminal cases, the report shows Texas initiated two criminal labor trafficking cases last year, making Texas one of seven states or territories to initiate a new labor trafficking prosecution.

"The more I become aware of this horrific issue of human trafficking that causes such trauma, pain, loneliness and utter despair to an individual who has been essentially "stolen" and plunged into a life of utter horror, that our normal minds cannot comprehend, the more passionate and driven I become for Trauma To Triumph Family Ranches to become a reality," Deller stated.
Trauma To Triumph Family Ranches will provide for individuals a place to come and experience the freedom of healing from strongholds, abuse, and depression. Programs, far too many in number to be listed here (see website) are designed to address the whole person spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and nutritionally.
Deller understands intimately some of the issues, as she has personally experienced them and, as a result, has written a highly acclaimed book entitled, 'Trauma to Triumph - If I can you can too'. Readers and reviewers have lavished praise on the new book, calling it "a heart wrenching story", "uplifting and inspirational" and "a work of tremendous revelation." One Amazon reviewer said, "I absolutely loved this book - WOW, and I thought I had some rough patches in life... this will blow your mind! I love the no nonsense truth and transparency. I can relate and am already using this book to guide myself to triumph! Thank you Monica, for being brave and sharing your story."
