This formula program assists states and school districts in doing the comprehensive planning needed to implement programs for limited English proficient (LEP) students that help these students learn English as quickly and effectively as possible, through scientifically based teaching methods, and to help these students to achieve the same high academic standards as other students.

Comment: The Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice have promulgated extensive regulations governing the continued detention of aliens who are subject to an order of removal, deportation, or exclusion. Staff are trained to respect offenders' safety, dignity, and privacy, and procedures exist for investigation of complaints and disciplinary action-including criminal prosecution-against staff who violate applicable laws and regulations. Conditions of detention in prisons, in particular in maximum security prisons, should be scrutinized with a view to guaranteeing that persons deprived of their liberty be treated with humanity and with respect for the inherent dignity of the human person, and implementing the United Nations Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners and the Code of Conduct for Law Enforcement Officials therein.

Appropriate measures should be adopted to provide speedy and effective remedies to compensate persons who have been subjected to unlawful or arbitrary arrests as provided in Article 9, paragraph 5, of the Covenant. Comment: The Constitution of the United States prohibits unreasonable seizures of persons, and the Supreme Court has allowed the victims of such unconstitutional seizures to sue in court for money damages. The rules provide rigorous safeguards for research subjects in general and recognize that additional protections may be necessary for vulnerable populations. Popular election of judges, though not provided for in the federal Constitution, is one means of ensuring democratic accountability of the state and local judicial branch of government. Historically, the criminal justice system treated domestic violence as a private, family matter.

The organization of this periodic report follows the General Guidelines of the Human Rights Committee regarding the form and content of periodic reports to be submitted by States Parties (CCPR/C/66/GUI/Rev.2). The following information supplements that provided in the U. Initial Report of July 1994 (CCPR/C/81/Add.4, published 24 August 1994; and HRI/CORE/1/Add.49, published 17 August 1994). The information also takes into account the concluding observations of the Committee, CCPR/C/79/Add.50; A/50/40, paras. law recognized tribal property rights are subject to diminishment or elimination under the plenary authority reserved to the U.

Petitioner, a prison inmate, sued the California Department of Corrections (CDC), alleging that the CDC's unwritten policy of segregating new and transferred prisoners by race violated the inmate's constitutional right to equal protection of the laws.

Furthermore, we note that no provision in the Covenant requires the use of "affirmative action" as a governmental policy. The Committee urges the State Party to revise federal and state legislation with a view to restricting the number of offences carrying the death penalty strictly to the most serious crimes, in conformity with Article 6 of the Covenant and with a view eventually to abolishing it. 716 (2005), did the Supreme Court purport to impose constitutional limits on the government's detention authority, especially with regard to aliens who are dangerous to national security or who pose threats to public safety. The Committee's recommendation was given careful consideration, but it is the view of the United States that current U. law fully satisfies the obligations the United States has assumed under the Covenant.
