A hidden phenomenon in Illinois is being exposed in a new way. Sunday, steps are announced to combat human sex and labor trafficking.
Just weeks ago federal and local agents shut down seven massage parlors in Rockford that were illegal sex shops. Several undocumented Chinese and Korean women were not allowed to leave the spas.
Some of these locked down women became prostitutes. Two men and six women were arrested. It's situations like this that Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich wants to stop.
The governor has formed the first ever multi-agency task force to inform us about human trafficking and uncover victims.
