Human rights groups in the United States play a very important role. They are the custodians of the human rights. They check the powerful, in the society to ensure that they do not misuse their powers to oppress the poor and the weak.
The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA)
Protection of human rights in the United States is one of the most important initiatives. It is in the best interests of the people to have human rights protected at costs. CHIRLA (The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights) is one organization that has positioned itself as a leader in protecting the rights of the people especially the immigrants in the state of California.
The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA) recognized that there should be no restrictions on human movements. Every human being has a right to stay and live at a place of their choice.
The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA) advocate for a culture of inclusivity in the society including the immigrants. They are against actions of immigrants’ discrimination. According to the group, there should be no special laws for immigrants.
For the longest time, United States has been trying to battle the problem of immigration by putting up laws that are discriminatory to the immigrants, hoping that they would desist from moving into the country. Such measures seem not be working as per their needs. However, to make it worst, most of these measures are discriminatory and have little respect for the universal human rights.

They recognize that there is an urgent need for the public to change their opinion about immigration and see it as a normal thing that should promote social integration. The organization has also been keen to advocate for better policies that guide immigration such that human and civil rights of the immigrants can be maintained.
The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA) was formed after enactment of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. This is an act that prohibited employment of undocumented workers in the state.
The act had created a loophole for unscrupulous employers to subject undocumented workers to inhumane working conditions since they knew the works could not like to be exposed. It was creating a culture of employers taking undocumented workers as slaves.
