Trafficked in America (full documentary)

Published on January 16, 2021 by

An investigation into how teenagers from Central America were smuggled into the U.S. by traffickers who promised them jobs and a better life — only to force them to live and work in virtual slavery to pay off their debt.

“Trafficked in America,” produced by Daffodil Altan and Andrés Cediel, with Altan as correspondent, shines light on a major labor trafficking case in which Guatemalan teens were forced by a third party contractor to work against their will at a farm in Ohio. Through the lens of this case, the documentary presents a look inside the reality of labor trafficking in America.
