Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Next to the drug trade, human trafficking ranks second as the largest form of organized crime in the world and Thursday city leaders from Chula Vista and Baja, California will meet to discuss ways to fight it.

The conference will bring together organizations from both sides of the border to tackle the $32 billion a year industry.

Annually, nearly 18,000 people, primarily women and children, are trafficked into the United States.
