The leading migrant rights organizations like Amnesty International USA and many other refugee groups have demanded the United States government to protect the rights and lives of immigrants during the Hurricane Harvey.
These organizations have issued a letter to the Department of Homeland Security during the last week of August this year.
This letter addressed the concerns and worries regarding the impact of Hurricane Harvey on the lives of the people who are seeking refuge and shelter to protect themselves and their families in this calamity. Read more: Michael Lacey | Facebook and Michael Lacey | Twitter
The letter also raised the concern that the agency is adding a lot of pain to already disturbed people by taking legal actions against them. The agency is violating the human rights, and that is not acceptable in any way.
The letter was also addressed to the Customs and Border Protection and Immigration and Customs Enforcement along with the Department of Homeland Security.
The letter also stated that many of the undocumented and unregistered Texans are forbade to take any safety measures to protect their lives and their loved ones because of the threats by enforcement bodies.
They are reluctant to take shelters in the safety homes provided by the government. More than fifty-two mothers along with their children were stuck in a bus station located in San Antonio.
They had no place to move, nor nay place to find refuge. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/michael-lacey/
