1. Coercion into the life of Prostitution is another topic relating to the North Mariana Islands.

From http://www.saipantribune.com/index.php/prostitutes-garapan-willingly/ :

“We had cases in 2009 right before the federal government took over local immigration. We had a huge onslaught of mainly Chinese but also Indian nationals who were told that if they were here when federal takeover happens, they would be automatically granted U.S. citizenship and could go to Guam and help with the military buildup.”

Brown said many of them paid anywhere between $4,000 and $60,000 and majority didn’t even know they were being trafficked.

“They just find out that’s something’s wrong because when they get here it’s not what they’ve been told. They’re told to get this and there’s an extra fee for that. They keep paying, paying, paying to this organization that is well organized and had a common thread throughout India and China.”

And because of the debt they accumulate, they are forced to work in jobs or do things against their will.
