16 Mexicans have been indicted in Florida on trafficking charges. Between August 2006 and February 2009, at least 3000 young Mexican women and minors were trafficked into Florida and South Carolina and New York, United States under false pretenses of jobs, and forced into prostitution through debt bondage of US$4,000. The brothels were operated by "ticketeros" who collected fees and sold "tickets," usually in the form of condoms, which were exchanged for sex. The charge was usually US$20, of which the women received US$3 toward paying off the US$4000 debt. The brothel operators used violence to control the women.
The majority of the homeless girls assisted by Casa Alianza programs in Mexico are victims of prostitution.
Military personnel are prostituting Mexican women in Chiapas. Soldiers pay 100 pesos for virgins, 50 pesos for other girls, the prettiest are sold to high-ranking officers. Girls, 9-13 year olds, are sold by their fathers into prostitution. The girls are dishonored, while their fathers are not.
