Recognizing the growing number of migrants worldwide, the General Assembly declared December 18th as International Migrants Day on December 4, 2000. This date holds special significance because in 1990, the Assembly endorsed the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families. This Week on MNN we aim to highlight the significant contributions made by migrant groups and raise awareness about the current struggles of asylum seekers in NYC.
