The AHR functions as an advocacy group seeking agreements guaranteeing the safety of American citizens between the United States and Middle East as well as the Latin American , constitutional law and international legal conventions provide ample precedents for such enforceable agreements. These agreements should thus allow for the litigation of both civil suits and the levying of prosecution against offending states by American citizens protected by these agreements.
American Constitution, the Charter of the United Nations, the Declaration of Human Rights, and other post-World War II agreements affirm basic human rights principles. The High Commissioner of the United Nations has a mandate from that body to enforce these principles. In this connection, the AHRO provides immediate deployment and aid to protect American citizens in Latin America and the Middle East, who are especially at risk from the offenses described below. These include the violation of the rights of free speech, involuntary labor, unlawful and extraordinary imprisonment.
As the US Government does not publicly release information or data on American Citizens detained, abused, etc. while abroad, the only publicly available information is from media coverage which likely only shows a portion of actual American Citizens affected. Nonetheless, these numbers and data alone are eye-opening and evident that additional action, assistance, and awareness is required.
The American Human Rights Organization is asking the United States Department of State to start, as soon as possible, to make the place of birth optional on U.S. passports to protect dual citizens abroad from discrimination in most international Airports around the world.
