The attorney general announced that she is setting up a task force to focus on the worsening problem of modern-day slavery in the U.S. She and Justice and Labor Department officials answered media questions about the situation. They said there have been numerous cases in the last few years, mostly of undocumented workers from Mexico and other countries, but some involving migrant workers who are citizens.
