(BBC) – The BBC is investigating the sex trafficking business in Mexico that often sends thousands of young women into forced prostitution from Mexico to the United States.  Mexico City is considered the central hub in human trafficking, with women being bought and sold to be smuggled into the U.S. and transported to New York City, border towns and tourist resorts.
