A new report finds thousands of Hispanic women are victims of sex trafficking in the U.S. and that it’s happening out of bars and cantinas.

The group Polaris, which works against modern slavery,  found more than half of the victims are minors.

The report, “More Than Drinks for Sale,” details victims in 20 states, including Arizona.

KJZZ's The Show hears more from My Lo Cook, the director of Polaris’ strategic initiative focusing on the sex trafficking of women and girls from Mexico in the U.S.
