J-1 students coming to the U.S. ideal for exploitation
"There's been a massive failure on the part of the United States to bring any accountability to the temporary work visa programs, and it's especially true for the J-1," said Terry Coonan, the executive director of Florida State University's Center for the Advancement of Human Rights.
The report suggests that strip clubs and adult entertainment companies openly solicit J-1 workers.
"It's difficult to prosecute these cases because the workers usually leave the country within a few months. That's why the J-1 is the ideal visa to exploit," Coonan said.
"If you wish to dance in USA as a J-1 exchange visitor, contact us," ZM Studios, a broker for topless dancers, advertised on its website this year.
In the Ocean City Baptist Church in Maryland, more than 1,700 J-1 students sought free meals this past summer.
In a statement to the Associated Press the State Department said it was concerned about the allegations being made.
"We are deeply concerned by any allegations involving the poor treatment of participants as this potentially undermines our goal of promoting mutual understanding and goodwill between the people of the United States and the people of other countries," the department said.
