November 18, 2004 Carmen Lucia de la Pava OAS Secretariat Staff Washington, DC 20006 cdel a [email protected] Dear Carmen, I understand suggestions for corrections to the report (CAJP/GT/TM-16/04) on the Special Meeting on human rights of migrants go to you. These refer to the English version and are as follows: Page 7, paragraph 4 (begins with “The United States delegation said...” ) . Suggest replace with: “The United States delegation expressed its support for a two-part program to promote and protect the human rights of migrants. The first part could i nclude activities to be carried out within the OAS entities . In this, a ll OAS entities would be encouraged to identify ongoing activities supporting and promoting human rights , as well as additional areas of planned activities where the issue of human rights of migrants could be raised in the public arena. The U.S. also said this approach would identify existing structures within the OAS that might facilitate implementation of the Program, and engage the various entities in the identification, development, and delivery of activities supporting human rights of migrants. Page 10, first paragraph ( begins with “The United States delegation said...” ) . Suggest replace with: The United States delegation said that the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work should be of interest for the program , including its follow-up mechanisms. The United States delegation also said it a ppreciate d the support expressed by Mexico for the U.S. view regarding including activities to be carried out by the OAS. The U nited States delegation a dded that the U . S . would support Mexico’s proposal for a second component of a program to promote and protect human rights of migrants . Specifically, this c ould be a list of specific optional activities that international organizations, governments, or civil society could undertake, as appropriate, to promote and protect the human rights of migrants. These optional activities could be done by civil society or government t ogether or separately, as appropriate. If OAS member states w ish to make this suggested list of optional activities and best practices comprehensive , the U . S . could support that approach . Page 15, paragraph 4 (begins with “The delegation of the United States suggested...”). Suggest insert the word “optional” after specific and add a sentence at the end , so corrected paragraph in its entirety would then read:

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
