International Migrants Day

Today is International Migrants Day. Back in 2000, the United Nations passed a resolution (resolution 55/93) proclaiming December 18 as International Migrants Day to reflect its adoption of the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families (resolution 45/158). The resolution respects the “full protection of the human rights of all migrants, and…the need to make further efforts to ensure respect for the human rights and fundamental freedoms of all migrants.”
