One common misconception about civil rights laws is that the Constitution only protects citizens. However, many of our most important rights, including the right to due process under the law and the right to be free from cruel and unusual punishment, extend to everyone on American soil. In fact, the wording of 42 U.S.C. § 1983 specifically states that it protects “any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof.” This means that citizens, resident aliens, and undocumented immigrants are equally protected from government abuse.
