Letters PASS or fail

Tracy Ryan’s stats [“Red light,” 2/10] from the Hawaii Ant-Trafficking Task Force are wrong because the task force’s findings were wrong. In 2008, there were 300 children in Honolulu (just Honolulu) at high risk for sex trafficking.

Pacific Alliance to Stop Slavery (PASS) itself has more than 13 survivor clients from 2009, two of whom are minors.

When the 2009 stats from the Honolulu Police Department come out you will see at least 100 foreign victims (labor and sex). I hope you do a follow up. Ryan has been allowed to misinform the public for too long and you are the only paper now allowing her to continue.
