Immigration Toll

Women seem to always pay so much more

I read a story in the New York Times recently about how women immigrants are being forced to pay for passage for themselves and their families by allowing their bodies to be used for sex, as well as being outright raped. It’s horrific. What’s also horrible is that when I heard that this was happening, I wasn’t surprised. Women are always having to pay with their bodies, why should immigration be any different? Of course it should be different… rape should not exist, anywhere.
