Trafficking in Boston: Using Cosmetelogy Shops as Cover-up

Weber says, "Now, it cannot be overstated, that the vast majority of nail salon and cosmetology shops in New England, including those operated by new immigrants, perform the services for which they were set up: hair, face, nails, and feet."

According to Bradley Myles, "Massachusetts is one of the few states in the country that still don’t have a comprehensive human trafficking law. I think once that law passes it’ll be a big boost to the Massachusetts task force because then they won’t only be using federal crimes to prosecute and take traffickers to federal court, but they’ll also have a whole apparatus of state courts to use both for human trafficking charges or for other charges like pimping or pandering, sexual abuse of children, whatever else you want to use."
