IACHR Urges Venezuela to Guarantee the Right to Protest and to Demilitarize Streets

Press Release 48/17

IACHR Urges Venezuela to Guarantee the Right to Protest and to Demilitarize Streets

April 19, 2017

Washington, D.C. - The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) expresses its alarm at the militarization and call to arm 500,000 civilian militias "to defend peace, sovereignty and independence of the country" in the context of the protests taking place in Venezuela. The imminent deployment of military forces and armed civilian militias ordered by the Executive Branch represents a serious threat to the standards regarding citizen security and the protection of human rights.

The IACHR has expressed its extreme concern about acts of violence that have occurred in Venezuela during the recent weeks of demonstrations. At least five protesters were killed and dozens were left wounded, while hundreds of persons were detained and claims of acts of torture were disseminated. In addition, the Commission has recommended that the State publicly recognized and protected the right to peaceful assembly and freedom of expression without discrimination on the grounds of public opinion and excluded the participation of military and armed forces from controlling public demonstrations, among others. The Commission rejects any kind of intimidating expressions or discourse from high State officials against citizens and opposition leaders as a way of dissuading the right to protest.

The Commission urgently calls on the authorities to comply with their international human rights obligations, including their duty to facilitate demonstrations and protests, guaranteeing the life and personal integrity of demonstrators, while excluding the use of weapons to control social protests.

In order to ensure the non-repetition of acts of violence and excessive use of force in the context of demonstrations, the IACHR makes a strong call to reject any form of violence and promote the search for solutions with full respect for human rights. As the IACHR has stated: "The criminalization of legitimate social mobilization and protest, whether through direct repression of demonstrators, or through investigation, arbitrary detention of demonstrators and criminal prosecution, is incompatible with a democratic society where people have the right to express their opinion" peacefully.

Given the work of journalists who cover demonstrations and conflicting situations, the State must grant them the maximum degree of guarantees to fulfill their role and prevent acts of aggression, arrest or destruction of equipment and records. The work of journalists and communicators, and the free flow of information through alternative media such as social networks, is essential to keep the population informed about the events, while playing an important role in reporting on the performance of the State and the actions of the security toward the demonstrators.

A principal, autonomous body of the Organization of American States (OAS), the IACHR derives its mandate from the OAS Charter and the American Convention on Human Rights. The Inter-American Commission has a mandate to promote respect for human rights in the region and acts as a consultative body to the OAS in this area. The Commission is composed of seven independent members who are elected in an individual capacity by the OAS General Assembly and who do not represent their countries of origin or residence.

USCIS Will Issue Redesigned Green Cards and Employment Authorization Documents

Wednesday, April 19, 2017 - No comments
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services today announced a redesign to the Permanent Resident Card (also known as a Green Card) and the Employment Authorization Document (EAD) as part of the Next Generation Secure Identification Document Project. USCIS will begin issuing the new cards on May 1, 2017.
These redesigns use enhanced graphics and fraud-resistant security features to create cards that are highly secure and more tamper-resistant than the ones currently in use.
The new card designs demonstrate USCIS’ commitment to continue taking a proactive approach against the threat of document tampering and fraud. They are also part of an ongoing effort between USCIS, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to enhance document security and deter counterfeiting and fraud.
The Redesigned Cards
The new Green Cards and EADs will:
  • Display the individual’s photos on both sides;
  • Show a unique graphic image and color palette:
    • Green Cards will have an image of the Statue of Liberty and a predominately green palette;
    • EAD cards will have an image of a bald eagle and a predominately red palette;
  • Have embedded holographic images; and
  • No longer display the individual’s signature.
Also, Green Cards will no longer have an optical stripe on the back.
How To Tell If Your Card Is Valid
Some Green Cards and EADs issued after May 1, 2017, may still display the existing design format as USCIS will continue using existing card stock until current supplies are depleted. Both the existing and the new Green Cards and EADs will remain valid until the expiration date shown on the card.
Certain EADs held by individuals with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and other designated categories have been automatically extended beyond the validity date on the card. For additional information on which EADs are covered, please visit the Temporary Protected Status and American Competitiveness in the 21st Century Act web pages on
Both versions are acceptable for Form I-9, Employment Eligibility VerificationE-Verify, and Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE). Some older Green Cards do not have an expiration date.  These older Green Cards without an expiration date remain valid. Individuals who have Green Cards without an expiration date may want to consider applying for a replacement card bearing an expiration date. Obtaining the replacement card will reduce the likelihood of fraud or tampering if the card is ever lost or stolen. 
Eligibility for Green Cards and EADs
For more information about the Green Card application process, please visit
To request an EAD, you must file Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization. Visit for more information about EADs.

Statement from U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross on Today’s Trade Enforcement Actions

Wednesday, April 19, 2017 - No comments
04/19/2017 09:52 AM EDT

Today, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross announced the initiation and preliminary decisions of antidumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) investigations, by the Department of Commerce, concerning hardwood plywood from China and carbon and alloy steel wire rod from 10 separate countries.
“The Department of Commerce will act swiftly to halt any possible unfair trade practices against U.S. companies while also assuring a full and fair assessment of the facts,” said Secretary Ross. “The Trump administration is unequivocally committed to the vigorous enforcement of America’s trade laws and will ensure U.S. businesses and workers are treated fairly.”
The Department issued an affirmative preliminary determination in the CVD investigation of imports of hardwood plywood from China, and initiated AD investigations of imports of carbon and alloy steel wire rod from Belarus, Korea, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Ukraine, the United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom. Both AD and CVD cases were initiated on imports of carbon and alloy steel wire rod from Italy and Turkey.
The Department found that the hardwood plywood from China had been unfairly subsidized at margins ranging from 9.89 percent to 111.09 percent.
The total U.S. import value of hardwood plywood from China and carbon and alloy steel wire rod from the 10 listed countries is respectively $1.15 billion and $272.2 million.
Since January 20, the Department of Commerce has opened 24 trade enforcement investigations relating to alleged dumping or unfair subsidization of more than $2.3 billion worth of U.S. imports, and has made preliminary or final determinations on 34 antidumping/countervailing duty investigations impacting more than $3.6 billion of dumped or unfairly subsidized domestic imports.
Antidumping (AD) and Countervailing Duty (CVD) laws provide U.S. businesses and workers with an internationally accepted mechanism to seek relief from the injurious effects of dumped and unfairly subsidized imports into the United States.
