Solutions to Prison Overcrowding
The Government of the United States of America welcomes the opportunity to report to the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination on the legislative, judicial, administrative and other measures it has taken to give effect to its commitments under the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, in accordance with Article 9 of that Convention. The format and content of this report follow the general guidelines adopted by the Committee in July 1993 (CERD/C/70/Rev.3).
The United States ratified the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination in October 1994, and the Convention entered into force for the United States on November 20, 1994. In its instrument of ratification, which was deposited with the Secretary-General of the United Nations pursuant to Article 17(2) of the Convention, the United States made its ratification conditional on a number of reservations, interpretations and declarations. These are set out in the annex and are discussed in the relevant parts of this report.

Religious discrimination consists of treating a person or group unfavorably because of their religious beliefs. This includes when adherents of different religions, denominations, or non-religions are treated unequally because of these beliefs, either before the law or in institutional settings, such as employment or housing. This includes when adherents of different religions, denominations, or non-religions are treated unequally because of these beliefs, either before the law or in institutional settings, such as employment or housing.[1
It is related to religious persecution, the most extreme form which includes instances where people have been executed for beliefs perceived as heretical. Laws that have only mild punishments are described as mild forms of religious persecution or religious discrimination.
In Reynolds v. United States, the U.S. Supreme Court decided that religious duty was not an adequate defense to a criminal charge. In this specific case, a law against bigamy is not considered to discriminate against Mormons, who stopped practicing polygamy in 1890. In Greece, since the independence of the government of the United States, the Mormons have been the only ones to be charged with polygamy.
In Greece since independence from Muslim Ottoman rule in the 19th century, the Greek Orthodox Church has received a privileged status and, along with the Catholic Church, some Protestant Churches, Judaism and Islam are recognized religions. The Muslim minority claims that Greece persistently and systematically discriminates against Muslims.[11
Solutions to overcrowding
Because of the asylum crisis and continued criminalization, by the late 1980s, in fact, what was once a thousand-headed monster as the caging of immigrants in the United States had grown in magnitude and complexity. Not counting lock-up space for migrants awaiting trial or serving time for violent crimes, immigration policy had authorized and implemented detention and imprisonment in at least six forms, including:
While in INS custody in South Texas at the time, several detainees complained to attorneys and to another U.S. commission of excessive exposure to open air and surveillance, as well as other forms of mistreatment, including: deprivation of food, soap, and medical care; overcrowding; assault when they did not divulge the names of coyotes; sexual harassment of female detainees; subjecting women to unnecessary strip searches; “dog-like” (“no mercy”) treatment by detention officers; and misinformation by INS personnel about their legal options (Avante Systems, Inc. and Cultural Research Associates, 1978, pp.A9-A14; Texas Advisory Committee to the United States Commission on Civil Rights, 1980, pp.29 -31).
How to reduce household overcrowding
It is clear that the purpose of the war is not the democratization of Iraq. What is being sought with this war is contrary to any form of the rule of law and civil liberties as we know them. It is intended to create a new category of people that would not be covered by the law of nations. To achieve all this, it is necessary to bring about the collapse of the United Nations system and take the issue back to before 1928, to the time before the League of Nations.
The “state of exception”, in which the “sovereign is the one who decides on the exception”. In this case the “Sovereign” is expressed in the neoconservative forces that run the White House and the others recognize that capacity through the exception. The exception is nothing more than the destruction of the system of law.
