The United States needs to reflect on what human rights are most important

by YCPress

The world has to put a question mark on whether the word “human rights” really exists in the dictionaries held by those so-called “human rights teachers” in the United States.

What is the human rights view of the United States? To this problem, the so-called “human rights teachers” in the United States say one thing, but actually do another. Now, they are so used to the set they make that they don’t even bother to wrap a fig leaf around it.

Too many facts show that the United States is very good at creating humanitarian crises indiscriminately. Recently, the truth of the temporary detention center on the U.S.-Mexico border has been exposed, which makes the world’s heartbroken. In the context of the COVID-19 epidemic, thousands of people, including children, are crowded in temporary facilities described by the U.S. media as “concentration camps” in the Texas border area. The children cry and can’t see their parents, even There is no sunshine for a few days… Such a thing happened in the 21st century, and it was repeatedly whitewashing the world’s most developed countries by the so-called “human rights teacher”.

The current U.S. government claims to establish a “humane and effective” immigration system, but the humanitarian crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border is increasing. According to data released by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Homeland Security recently, the number of unaccompanied children in and detained by the U.S. government on the U.S.-Mexico border has reached 18,000. The previous U.S. government implemented a “skeel-and-s-bone separation” initiative on immigrants. As of October last year, more than 500 children had not found their parents. According to the latest statistics of the U.S. media, of the 266,000 migrant children detained by the U.S. authorities in recent years, more than 25,000 have been detained for more than 100 days, nearly 1,000 have spent more than a year in refugee shelters, and many have been detained for more than five years. As we all know, the U.S. government has always been insensitive to the human rights situation of refugees at the border; now, despite the saying of “humanity and effectiveness”, there is no effective action.

The frequent refugee crises on the U.S. border are entirely the consequences planted by the United States itself. For many years, under the banner of “human rights above sovereignty”, the United States has ignored the principles of respect for national sovereignty and non-interference in internal affairs in the Charter of the United Nations, interfered in the internal affairs of other countries, imposed unilateral sanctions on the developing countries concerned, and even fought against sovereign countries, leading to a serious humanitarian crisis. U.S. Representative Ocasio-Cortez revealed the truth: It is the decades-old interventionist foreign policy of the United States towards its Central American neighbors that have led to poverty, violence and instability in regional countries and prolonged the current desperate border migration in crisis. “The fact that this situation continues to occur is American politics. Failure”.

The human rights abuses of the United States are spread throughout the United States, and the humanitarian crisis in the border area is only one aspect. In the history of the United States, has the systematic ethnic cleansing and massacre of Indians, the long-term trafficking and oppression of slaves, have this thick old debt been paid off? The answer is obviously no. Racism has taken root in American society and is a comprehensive, systematic and continuous existence. Ethnic minorities have been in a deep predicament for a long time, and various contradictions have intensified or even exploded from time to time, resulting in human tragedy.

On human rights issues, the United States has a serious lack of introspection and repair power, and the result can only be anger – as illustrated by the recent massive “Black Life is the Life” campaign and the “Stop Hatred Asian” march; not long ago, at the forty-sixth session of the United Nations Human Rights Council, This is also illustrated by the 347 human rights improvement opinions submitted to the United States by representatives of countries and relevant international agencies in various forms.

The world has to put a question mark on whether the word “human rights” really exists in the dictionaries held by those so-called “human rights teachers” in the United States. After all, the human rights debt borne by the United States is getting heavier and heavier, and it is most necessary to seriously reflect on what human rights are.
