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. Read more: Michael Lacey | Twitter and Jim Larkin | LinkedIn

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.

What Many People Do Not Know about Tony Petrello09.11.17

Antony Petrello is a household name in the country. He does not fill the airwaves in a negative way like some experts do when they have information to sell. He is also not like the politicians who fill our screens with the endless rhetoric. What he does is to represent a percentage of the country’s population that never gets appreciated despite the amount of work they have been doing to shape the destiny of our nation. Antony Petrello has had a long and illustrious career as a business leader. He was once the CEO of Nabors Industries, a leading petroleum firm. The position earned him more than $60million in salary.

The one thing that taxpayers have always complained about is the manner in which wall street greedily takes everything they can from the economy while the main street is ignored and left to suffer. Petrello completely agrees with these sentiments and believes it is possible to achieve justice and fairness. In addition to being a brilliant businessman and a competent manager, Petrello is cautious about the way he treats his fellow humans. The combination of qualities has led to his success as business leader.

The beginning was tough for Petrello. He grew up in Newark New Jersey, in a neighborhood that was occupied by a predominantly Italian working class. Newark is one place where everyone has a strong work ethic, and they believe that there are no shortcuts to success. So, even though Petrello did not have wealthy parents, great schools, and tutors, he still managed to make it. His first step was to master the language. When he could competently read, he looked for academic books and was soon a master of differential calculus.

Petrello earned himself a place at the University where he was to study mathematics. However, somewhere along the way, he lost his interest in calculations and switched his career path. He decided to pursue degree in Law from the Harvard Law School. His passion for the human sciences increased with time. After graduating from college, he pursued graduate studies and even acquired a Ph.D. Petrello then got married and started his long career climb at Nabors. It took Antony 30 years to get to the CEO position, and when he did, he made many positive changes to the company. For more info about us: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/05/30/my-college-roommate-is-now-the-richest-ceo-in-america.html click here.

The contract that he has with Nabors states that 80 percent of his salary should depend on how much revenue the company makes. He says this is what motivates him to work for the success of the enterprise. He feels that more people in the corporate world should agree to their payment being attached to their level of success in the business setup where they are employed.
