Under current law, no one may engage in human trafficking. Trafficking is
defined in current law as recruiting, enticing, harboring, transporting, providing, or
obtaining an individual without the individual's consent. A person commits an
illegal act of human trafficking if he or she traffics an individual under
circumstances involving physical or financial harm, threats, or other types of
coercion against the individual so that the individual will provide services, labor, or

individual be recruited, enticed, harbored, transported, provided, or obtained
