Map: Latino residential brothels spread nationally

Data from law enforcement, the National Human Trafficking Resource Center's hot line (1-888-373-7888) and news reports indicate that "Latino Residential Brothels" — a term coined by the anti-trafficking group Polaris Project — have been uncovered in at least 25 states and Washington, D.C. This map shows call volumes to the national hot line from 2007 to 2010 and identifies states where NBC News has found evidence of brothels since 1989. Roll your cursor over states for details from cases that have surfaced there.
