On July 23, 2013 Animal Político Noticias reported that human trafficking for prostitution remains a very serious problem in Tlaxcala, with the current government doing little to address the issue. According to the Fray Julián Garcés Human Rights Center, more than 150 human trafficking complaints have been reported during the current administration, which has been in power over the last 30 months.
