This Report documents ongoing human rights violations taking place in the area proposed for the integrated steel plant and captive port in Jagatsinghpur district, Odisha (formerly known as Orissa). Testimonies gathered directly from project-affected communities evidence significant and ongoing attempts to illegally evict people from their lands, as well as serious human rights violations against individuals and communities who are resisting forced eviction and defending their human rights.

CHRGJ and its IHRC released “Targeted and Entrapped: Manufacturing the ‘Homegrown Threat’ in the United States” in May 2011. Among other things, the report calls on the U.S. government to stop its discriminatory targeting of Muslim communities in counter-terrorism investigations. It also asserts that the government’s use of intrusive surveillance, untrained paid informants, and manufactured terrorism plots raises serious human rights concerns that must immediately be addressed. This latest report follows several other reports produced by the IHRC on issues related to racial profiling, citizenship, and other discriminatory practices undertaken by the U.S. government in the name of the “War on Terror”.

The report has been translated into several languages. Please click on the links below to see it in the languages listed here.

The U.S. government’s aggressive use of the immigration system in its counterterrorism efforts discriminates against Muslims and violates international human rights law, said the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice (CHRGJ) at NYU School of Law and the Asian American Legal and Education Defense Fund (AALDEF) as they released a Briefing Paper on the issue today. The Briefing Paper, “Under the Radar: Muslims Deported, Detained, and Denied on Unsubstantiated Terrorism Allegations,” exposes the many ways in which U.S. officials take advantage of the lax standards and lack of transparency that mark the immigration system as particularly ripe for abuse.
