suggested overlaying a map of human trafficking vs. coronavirus cases. So I did some research. Long story short I do not see a connection. Here are the slides, one by one.
I am a shitty designer. If you want to fix this up be my guest.
This is my title slide.
The data shows a discrepancy between the Federal court cases with respect to human trafficking/pedophilia and the National Human Trafficking Hotline. This could be innocent, or not. But it becomes important when you compare the Federal cases w/ one another.
When you compare the federal court data with itself, you see that the same states keep coming up when reviewing human trafficking cases, racketeering cases, and public corruption.
There is some connection to the sealed indictments, but it's not as strong.
I don't see any connection between the human trafficking cases and the coronavirus cases or quarantine camps.

I am not sure exactly how each of these terms is defined (maybe human trafficking is the organized activity vs. pedophilia is the individual activity) but as you can see, the top states for the one are the top states for the other.
National Human Trafficking hotline data is just very different. This could be a function of which cases are reported, and which cases are prosecuted. My inclination would be to assume the data is vastly undercounted, but to go by the criminal prosecutions and multiply from there.
You can see that under President Trump, the Department of Justice has significantly ramped up its efforts to combat human trafficking, just by looking at the increase in task forces across the country.
Top Sealed Indictments by State, 2017-2020. You can see that a number of these states are the same as the human trafficking states, but some are not.
There's just an overwhelmingly strong link between the racketeering/RICO cases/public corruption cases and the HT/pedophilia cases. The same states over and over again.
Two views of the quarantine camps, one unsourced and the other recreated from the Daily Mail article. I think these are simply locations proximate to airlines and don't see a clear connection to human trafficking arrests.
