Do you know anything about women being sex trafficked through Arizona massage parlors?

In Arizona and across the country, groups involved in organized crime have set up massage parlors as fronts for sex trafficking.

Women are brought in from other countries, then shuffled on to the next city. They may be forced or coerced into to working 16 hours a day, seven days a week, in unsanitary conditions.

The Arizona Republic and USA Today are investigating this illegal activity. Past investigations have focused on sex trafficking behind the lucrative illicit massage business and how massage schools linked to prostitution have remained open.
