Freedom House is currently working with the United Kingdom and the United States as well as other states in order to reach a consensus on what should be done about the migrant crisis around the globe as well as deciding the urgent steps to be taken.

“We are firmly committed to the humanitarian crisis around the world and we would like to see a reworking of the international legal framework to allow migrants enter into states legally and enjoy their fundamental human rights,” the representative further added.

The deliberations remain ongoing and they should hopefully reach a pragmatic solution to the migrant and border crisis.
