Sioux Falls Woman Fights for Sex Trafficking Victims [VIDEO]

Sioux Falls Pastor Susan Omonsan says the recent arrests of 7 men as part of an undercover sex sting during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is a “huge step forward.”

Susan has been fighting sex slave trafficking both abroad and at home in South Dakota for years.  The Sioux Falls woman is co founder of “Be Free Ministries,” an advocacy organization for sex trafficking victims.

“We have trafficking up in the oil fields, we have trafficking on the reservations, we have trafficking over the internet, we have trafficking at the Sturgis Rally and trafficking during hunting season.  We have worked with mail order brides and international trafficking vicctim.  It’s all here in South Dakota, except for organ trafficking.”

So, why is sex trafficking happening in a rural state like South Dakota?  “We have a very vulnerable people group—Lakota our first nation people, and we then have these huge sex tourism events.  We just happen to have these situations.  With the internet—that has really expanded the availability to pimps and others to sell people.”

And believe it or not, that includes parents selling their children to sex traffickers.  “We know there is bartering that takes place with children.  One woman we have worked with was sold by her mother at a very young age.  It’s sick!  This kind of things happens all over the United States.  Everyday there are children sold.”

Fortunately, Susan Omanson says state, local and federal authorities are working together to shut down sex traffickers—the most recent sex sting at the Sturgis Rally is an example of what law enforcement is doing to put a stop in sex trafficking.
