In the United States, we tend to see younger people, especially women being trafficked. These individuals tend to be from minority communities such as the Native American tribes, people with disabilities, and undocumented migrants. There are also many people in the LGBTQA community being trafficked. Further, research shows that 38% of trafficking victims have mentioned that they traveled by plane during their exploitation. 63% indicated using mass transit while being trafficked. 26% reported that public and mass transportation was a key factor in their efforts to escape.
