“Human Rights Must be at the Top of the Biden Agenda.”
The Trump administration rescued over 50 American hostages in the last four years. That’s more human rights work than Columbia has done in 50 years.

Columbia Law laments ‘damage’ done by Trump, cheers on Biden
Columbia Law School’s Human Rights Institute openly criticized the Trump administration on their school website and then proceeded to give the Biden administration recommendations in a piece, titled, “Human Rights Must be at the Top of the Biden Agenda.”
“It should prioritize undoing the damage done to social justice over the past four years, and reform longstanding domestic and foreign policies that have harmed human rights,” the piece stated.
It continued to say that the United States has “never fully lived up to human rights ideals,” but the Biden administration has an opportunity to fix it.
“The past four years highlight how calculated disregard for human rights at home and abroad disrupts lives, fuels fear and insecurity at our university, and leads to injustice in our communities and around the world,” the institute said.
The institute labeled policies from the Trump administration as “anti-muslim,” “anti-immigrant,” and “hostile” to civil rights protections for African Americans, women, and LGBTQI+ communities. It also claimed that judicial nominations, as well as high ranking administration appointees, “reflect a white supremacist agenda.”
