No vicious attack that I can see.|
There's no vicious attack in the thread. Just an exclamation about human trafficking and a question about what can be done, no allegation of who is responsible.
The surest solution for human trafficking is increased international trade. The more that China exports, the more dollars will flow to workers in their home countries. If Chinese can succeed in their home towns, then why would they ever want to leave, except on vacation?
It is as true for Chinese immigrants as it is for Hispanic immigrants to the USA. It is only the lack of opportunity at home that pushes them ever northward. Incidentially, the push northward began long ago. Mexico once owned all of California and the Jesuit Missionaries before Mexican rule explored the western coast and established missions with names like San Diego, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, San Clemente, San Jose, and San Francisco. On the east coast, Conquistadors are known to have settled as far northward as North Carolina, and they recently found a Conquistador's sword in the ruins of a southern Maryland tobacco plantation. In the film, Dances With Wolves (1990), the midwest prarie Indians even had a helmet of Conquistador. People have been coming northward from the south for centuries, and the brief interlude from the 1830s to the present is not the full history of America.
Before the Mexican-American War in the 1830s, California was governed by a democratically elected official. Americans don't remember that Mexico ruled California in accord with all the democratic principles we that we claim to hold so dear. They just remember the Alamo.
