Legitimate organizations that are trying to rescue girls from human trafficking are running into a problem. Some of the groups soliciting money for rescue operations don't have the girls well being in mind. “Seen a lot of groups that are rescuing girls, and they get on the Internet and they tell everybody we just rescued 25 this week, send your money, and people are sending their money. Next week, they go out and rescue another 25. What they are not telling you is that the first 25 they rescued they are putting back out onto the streets so they have run to go rescue another 25.” Dave Rogers of Operation Ransom says his goal is to create a facility where the girls can be taken if the first rescue agency simply turns them away. The plan is to have a dorm type facility where the girls can live for a year or two to rehabilitate the girls for the long term.
