from the National Network for Immigrant and Refugee Rights
The United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Migrants has requested reports on the detention of migrants, and will be addressing the issue before the UN Human Rights Council in June 2012.
NNIRR, with the Advocates for Human Rights, has compiled a report outlining key concerns on the human rights of immigrants in detention, to be submitted to the Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Migrants. Pax Christi USA has endorsed and signed on to the report.
Individuals may also submit their endorsement before the end of the day on January 29th.
