The term international migrant has been defined numerous times by numerous organizations. It has become clear over the years that there is no clear, universally agreed definition of migrant. This has led to numerous counts of human rights violations against migrants. Rising fear and xenophobia have also played major roles in changing migration policy across borders by first world countries. In some cases this has led to imprisonment in detention centres. Hence there is a need to understand who international migrants are and how these hard line policies affect them.  

Key words: International Migrants, Xenophobia, Human Rights Violations, Hard Line Policies, Detention Centres.
