Civil rights, human rights and migrant rights in the United States11.20.17

The rights of the people are fundamental and they deserve to be respected at all costs. When we talk of human rights, we are referring to the rights of the people which are guaranteed by the universal human rights charter of the United States. These universal rights are rights that are guaranteed for every human being.

There is no limit to how they can be applied. Human rights are, mandatory and they should be given respect by everyone. It is imperative that the people who have been mandated with the responsibility of ensuring that these rights are accorded to everyone do so promptly.

Human rights are to be guarded by the people who have been mandated to be at the helm of the government. These are the people given the mandate to ensure every person feels treated equally. However, the danger comes when the same people go against the law and be the ones who are committing illegalities.

The right of the common person comes into risks. To ensure that even with a failure of the government, human rights are observed, there are groups that fall under the human rights, civil rights and migrants rights that have taken up the responsibility of ensuring that governments do not violate human rights.

There are many groups that have been carrying out this responsibility. Some of them include:

ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project

This a group that operates in the United States. It has been vocal in defending the rights of the immigrants into the United States. ACLU has been very committed to fighting for the rights of migrants human and civil rights. Part of their work, they do through outreach, advocacy, and litigation. They normally move to the courts to help immigrants with some of the cases that they have been charged.

ACLU has the biggest litigation program in the United States. Michael Lacey ensure that the rights of the people are guaranteed from violation through the use of the courts. The group hopes that through that through their efforts, equitable rights for all immigrants will be achieved. The group has been to the courts of law to challenge the legality of some of the laws passed by the states.

Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund

This is a group that operates in Arizona. It also deals with protection of human rights in the state. Being a border state with Mexico, there are many immigrants who cross into the United States through the border. As a result, there are numerous cases of human rights violations that take place in the state.

To counter this trend, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin started this group to help other rights groups in the state to counter violations of human and civil rights in the state. This organization was founded using money from compensation by the state for a case involving human rights violations.
