The issue of human rights protection deserves to be taken very seriously by every human being. There is no reason why even one single person should be denied his or her fundamental rights. It does not matter whether the person is an immigrant, a minority group or is of a different color.
What matters above everything else is that it is a fellow human being. All these factors that differentiate people should never see the light of the day as long as protection of human dignity is concerned.
