As the world grapples a pandemic, the most troubling of all evils have not been natural but man-made crises. War, terror, civil strife, corruption, ethnic cleansing, violence, crime, governmental failure and organisational collapse, all of these have contributed to the displacement of people from their homes. Migration to most habitable and peaceful nations comes at a heavy cost. Often the price paid is heavier than the freedom gained. Despite international laws and conventions and national policies, several people still find themselves homeless and stateless. In this research paper, the author seeks to highlight the confluence of immigration and human rights. This shall be deliberated upon in the backdrop of the migration of people from Central and Southern American nations to the United States of America. The author undertakes to delve into the international, social, geo-political and legal ramifications on each person who dares to sail a migrating draft. This paper shall have special emphasis on vulnerable groups especially the rights of minor migrants.
