This essay explores the international trend in humanitarianism whereby organizations are moving away from traditional principles which utilize political neutrality to access suffering populations and carry out relief efforts more easily. Ethical tensions have always existed with this approach, many have criticized apolitical nature of humanitarian aid that makes no effort to actually solve structural reasons that create mass suffering. Beginning largely in the post-cold war era, humanitarian organizations have begun employing human rights tactics in tandem with their humanitarian aid to reunify humanitarianism and human rights. This essay argues that, along with providing humanitarian aid to migrants on the US-Mexico border, the US based organization No More Deaths/No Mas Muertes follows this international trend by employing human rights tactics such as naming and shaming, migrant advocacy, and making political demands alongside its efforts to deliver humanitarian aid. This essay argues that No More Deaths leans into human rights tactics to counter governmental attacks and the criminalization of their operations, arguing that their human rights work now enables their humanitarianism to continue.
