New York, New York May 15, 2007

The United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Migrants, Dr. Jorge Bustamante, is currently finishing up an official fact-finding visit to the United States. As the UN expert on migration, he is meeting with government officials, NGOs, and migrants to evaluate the state of migrant protections in the United States. He has traveled to California, Arizona, Florida, Atlanta, New York and will finish in Washington, D.C. Although most of the visit has been quite smooth, he was inexcusably denied entry to two immigration detention centers.
