Doctors Deported For Human Trafficking

6/17/12 – They have completed their six-year prison term for human trafficking, now Jefferson Calimlim Senior and his wife Elnora have been deported. They Calimlims were both doctors, living in the Milwaukee suburb of Brookfield, when they were convicted of bringing a woman to the U.S. from the Philippines and forcing her to work in their home. The victim says she was threatened with violence if she didn’t work 6am to 11pm, every day, 365 days a year. That reportedly went on for 19 years. Defense attorneys argued the woman agreed to the working conditions, saying she knew her situation here would still be better than the one she faced back at home. The couple was convicted in 2006 in federal court. They have been returned to the Philippines themselves now.
