Venezuela?s Ombudswoman Condemns New Arizona Immigration Law

The Venezuelan Ombudswoman, Gabriela Ramírez, condemned the anti-immigration law approved in Arizona and called it racist, discriminatory and a violator of the human rights of those of Latino heritage, reported the news agency Prensa Latina.

“This law has generated global rejection; it will leave without protection thousands of foreign families that have not had any possibility to legalize their status in that country,” said the official.
Furthermore, Ramírez added that this law is a retrograde legal instrument that attempts against human rights and “reveals the conception of a discriminatory state that pursues immigrants in the U.S.”

Prensa Latina reported that the Venezuelan Ombudswoman pointed out that, unlike the U.S., the Venezuelan institutions guarantee the protection of all citizens, especially vulnerable groups, through the specialized prosecutor’s offices and institutions receiving claims of rights violations.
