The cold weather surrounding the Super Bowl put a damper on the sex trafficking that usually surrounds the event. Nita Belles with Oregonians Against Human Trafficking says the Super Bowl is the biggest sex trafficking event of the year and she went down to Dallas to try to rescue girls. She says the cold weather seemed to affect the sex business, pushing everyone indoors instead of out on the strip. But Belles says in talking with people who come out sex trafficking, when business is slow, the girls usually pay: “There's no business because they can't get out; so the pimps are cooped up in a motel room somewhere with the girls and they are upset and so they are taking it out on the girls." Last year Belles and her group rescued several girls. This year there were no rescues but they were able to give local police several leads and get pictures of missing girls posted in tattoo parlors, bars and motels in Dallas.
