Exploited Asian Immigrants
29 January 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The finding of two abandoned little children in a Chinatown apartment sets the SVU squad on a case involving exploited immigrants from China smuggled in by 'snakeheads' and either put to work in sweatshops or if young and pretty enough pimped out as whores.

Whoremaster in this investigation is a smug, arrogant Chinese gangster played by Jack Yang. He's one of the most evil villains ever in the history of the show. His alpha male front with Mariska Hargitay while being interrogated really makes you want to smack him.

Ming-Na Wen plays the sister of the woman whose children were abandoned and there's an older child about 14 no doubt being pimped out. It's all a race against the clock because Yang really has the system wired.

A good episode with SVU taking on the issues of illegal immigrant exploitation and child sex exploitation.
