What is the difference between Civil Rights and Human Rights?
Human rights cover the basic necessities of human existence and were officially created post World War II. Civil Rights are given to us by virtue of being a citizen of certain countries, nations or states, and they are there to protect us against discrimination and to grant us certain freedoms in that nation.

What makes some immigrants vulnerable?
As human rights solicitors we see many immigrants who left their country of origin because they were unable to access their human rights. In some circumstances the resulting movement will not give rise to protection under international refugee law, but nevertheless will mean that the person is in need of the protection provided by international human rights law.
Migrants are often obliged to employ dangerous forms of transport in order to travel to safety and make use of smugglers and other types of facilitators, some of whom may place them in situations of exploitation and subject them to forms of abuse. Some may be at risk of trafficking as they move.
As human rights lawyers we ensure that they do not return to a place where there are reasons to believe they will be at risk or being subjected to torture or other cruel or inhumane or degrading treatment or punishment, or any other serious human rights violations. There is a presumption against immigration detention and judicial bodies work on the presumption in favour of liberty. As human rights solicitors, we help those who need to avoid immigration detention, especially those who have specific needs.
