(HOUSTON) — Mayor Annise Parker joins Governor Rick Perry and others in announcing a new anti-human trafficking campaign for Texas.
The state is considered one of the major hubs for international human smuggling because of its many international airports, interstate freeways and its shared border with Mexico.

A study released in 2005 shows human trafficking, or sexual servitude and forced labor, brings in about $32 billion a year, making it second only to illegal arms smuggling in profitability.
The campaign will be announced outside Houston City Hall at 10:30 a.m., right after the mayor spends an hour live in-studio at NEWs 92 FM, taking your questions and comments.
