A recent FBI sting operation ranked Oregon has second in the nation for victims recovered from human sex trafficking. World News tonight with Diane Sawyer recently described Portland, Oregon as "Pornland" and stated the City is a hub for sex trade. Portland Mayor Sam Adams is trying to change that image by saying the problem in the Rose City is no bigger than anywhere else.   Nita Belles is the Regional Coordinator for Oregonians Against the Trafficking of Humans (OATH). She doesn't agree: Portland is one of the worst. I won’t say it’s number one or number two, but I will say it has a high incidence of sex trafficking. It also has one of the highest incidences of sex industries. We are talking about lingerie shops that sometimes serve as brothels.” Belles says the I-5 corridor is sex trafficking circuit and the girls are moved from along that freeway on a regular basis to keep them from making friendships and possibly getting help. An ex-pimp will be talking at the monthly meeting of OATH at the Bend Library Tuesday night at 6 to answer questions and tell how he got out of the sex trade industry.
