Human trafficking has reached "a massive scale," crossing international borders and involving loosely affiliated crime groups, making the prosecution of those involved difficult, according to testimony Wednesday before the U.S. Helsinki Commission.
Mr. Andres also said there are "significant challenges" in trying to investigate and prosecute human trafficking crimes that cross international borders, adding that pursuing an investigation abroad "is often time consuming and the delays can be significant and undermine an investigation."
He said, on occasion, human traffickers belong to a larger organized crime group.
