BEIJING, July 9 (Xinhua) - The China Society for Human Rights Studies on Thursday published an article, laying bare the hypocrisy of "U.S.-style human rights" as evidenced by its extremely harsh immigration policies and violations of the basic rights and personal dignity of immigrants.

The religious, cultural and racial discrimination against immigrants has kept developing and become increasingly intense in the United States, said the article titled "Serious Discrimination Against and Cruel Treatment of Immigrants Fully Expose Hypocrisy of 'U.S.-Style Human Rights'."
The article pointed out that the U.S. government has treated immigrants violently, and arrested and detained immigrants on a large scale in the border areas of the United States.
The US "zero tolerance" immigration policy has resulted in the separation of children from their parents, the article noted.
"Immigrants, including immigrant children, are subjected to inhumane treatment, with their basic human rights, such as the right to life and right to health, being seriously violated," it said.
