Summary
Part one of "Dying to Leave" covers the dramatic increase in illegal smuggling of people, usually involving voluntary passage of those in search of better economic or social conditions. It tells the story of migrants like Ama from Iraq, who lost her husband and two children at sea when their overcrowded boat sank while trying to reach Australia; Marcelo from Argentina, who describes fleeing his country's economic chaos and being smuggled through Canada into the United States; and Maria, who paid smugglers to escape the Ukraine for a better life in Italy, only to have things go drastically wrong. Part two looks at human trafficking - smuggling activity that includes a new kind of indentured servitude where impossible debt is combined with brutal working conditions and the transport and exploitation of women and children for the international sex trade. This hour features stories of people like Jong Li Qu, a Chinese laborer caught in debt bondage in the United States; Sui, a Thai teenager trafficked into brothel work in Australia; and Lina, a mail-order bride from Russia who was tricked into sexual slavery in Europe
