Wow, genocide is the same as setting work restrictions on a full time student's visa. That seems a bit... Extreme.
Yeah, the UN made a mandate that they don't enforce. However, according to Article 28, your girlfriend "is entitled to a social and international
order in which the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration can be fully realized."
For that matter, according to the article you quoted above, "Everyone has the right to work." Which means 10% of Americans right now are having
their UN mandated human rights trampled on.
I do find your comparison interesting, though, and wonder how a conversation might go surrounding this:
"I was taken when I was 5 to a concentration camp. I spent 6 years there, where my entire family was killed, as well as most of those around me. We
were starved, tortured and killed, all because I was Jewish."
"I, too, was taken because my parents were gypsies. They did the same things to us."
"I was a Russian soldier captured in World War II. There were 2,500 of us captured. I and 5 others were the only survivors."
"My girlfriend was told she can only work on campus and for a maximum of 20 hours."
I'm sure she would have the sympathy of the other three for the gross injustice committed against her humanity.
