VIENNA — A US official says growing numbers of countries are guilty of unfairly treating victims of human trafficking by detaining and deporting them at the first opportunity.

Luis CdeBaca is Washington's envoy on human trafficking issues. He says that while countries are increasingly signing on to conventions targeting human traffickers, the victims are subject to unfair treatment.

Anti-trafficking activist Marika van Doorninck says that countries often use anti-trafficking policies to develop anti-migration laws.

They and other panelists spoke Tuesday on the second day of a UN conference dedicated to shoring up support for a UN convention aimed at crippling international organized criminal groups such as human traffickers.
