Abstract

Currently, international migrations are an important topic for all States, since many of them are migrants' countries of origin, and many other states are characterized for being countries of destination or transit. Consequently, it has been necessary that the flow of migrants and especially the recognition of the rights of both immigrants and migrants are included in the domestic legislation of the States, taking into account the international standards set forth by international instruments. The Colombian State along its history has not considered the treatment of this human reality, and the few laws in this topic are a proof of it. However, the importance of this issue has become gradually visible and recently the Congress approved Law 1465/2011, which aims to lay the grounds for the creation of the National Migration System. The objective of this article is to analyze the relevance of this law guided by certain basic principles of the Human Rights International Law.
