Why Foreign Nationals

Foreign nationals face complex vulnerabilities. Many populations:

  • Are unaware of helpful support services or may not have access to them due to geographic isolation or isolation due to their trafficking situation
  • Fear the authorities and the threat of deportation, whether they are documented or undocumented
  • Lack documentation proving their identity
  • Lack an understanding of their rights in the United States
  • May experience language or literacy barriers
  • May be exploited when traffickers threaten to harm them or their family
