Violations against human, migrant and civil rights continue to rise through the years, making is necessary for various groups to step forward and try to stand against these offenses. The aim of these groups is to ensure that immigrants and migrants are treated fairly and given the same treatment and access to fair trials as any other citizen.

Too often is this not the case. These groups also work to stop the racial profiling, killings, and denial of rights that are so common along the border.

The South Texas Human Rights Center is one of the groups that is working to provide a solution to these issues.
