Current Numbers on Human Trafficking

Tony Ortega reports on Scientology’s continued use of religious visas to bring people in under false pretenses and out them to work doing menial labor, not religious at all.  The largest numbers are coming from Russia and Italy. https://tonyortega.org/2017/08/23/scientology-shows-no-sign-of-slowing-down-its-use-of-religious-visas-for-foreign-labor/

“Since 2009, when these numbers first became public because of a change in the law, Scientology has brought in 4,158 “religious” workers to get paid about 40 cents an hour at its major bases…

… based on new defectors and other lines of evidence, we believe that the global number of active church members is fewer than 20,000. So bringing in more than 4,000 foreign workers to staff bases is really a significant development, and helps explain how Scientology keeps those bases running even as its overall numbers dwindle.”

Also there is a great comment by John P:
