Over the recent past, the population of the United States has been growing. Many individuals have been flocking the US seeking refuge or greener opportunities.
With all that said and done, the US has therefore, remained in the limelight due to cases of mistreatments. Whether a citizen or a refugee, each member of a country is entitled to individual rights, all meant to protect and enable a smooth stay in the country.
For every democratic country in the globe, every person is entitled to various rights that should be respected at all cost. However, in some rare or different occasions, many citizens have had their rights infringed turning them victims of human rights violation.
As a result, almost every democratic country has made its mandate to work in full-force to ensure the protection of human rights whether regardless of one’s citizenship status hence peaceful coexistence within the community level.
In the US for example, the number of exploited victims has been on the rise. In dire need to curb the rate, there exists an advocacy team whose mandate is to provide violated victims with a voice and reason to seek justice. Apart from, the established support team works day and night to demand accountability as well as actions against the perpetrators of the inhuman acts.
Today, the category of individuals who have victims of oppression can at least afford a smile since almost every country has come out firm defending the rights of its citizens. In the past, most perpetrators of inhuman acts evaded the long hand of the government.
However, today, with the willing outspoken governments and human right groups in place, every heinous act has been performed upon as needed.
Owing to the need to advocate for human rights, a notable number of humanitarian groups have emerged. All the established groups work on a well-laid strategy and expertise to handle each case of their field of interest. Some of the established humanitarian groups are funded and monitored by the government.
