Super Bowl: Magnet for Child Traffickers, Sex Slaves from Latin Amerca

There really is a dark side to everything, even the Super Bowl.

As Dallas is trying to cater to the rush of people headed there for the Super Bowl this weekend, their looking for another 10,000 strippers said TMZ.

While some might find the presents of strippers simply a moral issue, there is more to it than that. With the increase in strippers, comes the increase in the trafficking of young girls, primarily from Latin America.

According to the Today Show, the fast-growing sex trafficking world is bringing a number of unassuming teenaged girls into Texas from Latin American. These girls are beaten, raped, and their families threatened, and forced to have sex with as many as 6 men a night, when they were initially promised good jobs that would allow them to help their families back home.

“The Super Bowl is a magnet for child sex traffickers.” said Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott. “People are thinking of the Packers and the Steelers and the game on the field, having a good time, and Super Bowl commercials. Most don’t think about a 12-year-old being forced to dance naked.

So as Texas calls for more strippers, thousands of sex-slaves are believed to be arriving as well, some to fill in as strippers, while others are planned for something fall worse.
