IACHR Petition for Domestic Workers - U.S. Govt. Response

2016

In 2016, the U.S. government filed a response to the petition disavowing any international obligation to protect A-3/G-5 domestic workers, despite its decades-long knowledge of the trafficking and abuses committed through the visa program. The U.S. also claimed that measures adopted since 2009 had remedied the problems of years past and fulfilled whatever human rights obligations it arguably had to protect migrant domestic workers.
