Social justice has always been high on the list of items George Soros has been looking to fight for in terms of the people of the U.S. and those he assists around the world through the Open Society Foundations network of charitable groups. Discover the Networks explains George Soros is always willing to fight for the right of refugees and minority groups he feels are underrepresented in the U.S. social and criminal justice sectors. Throughout the 21st century the political giving of George Soros has been limited by his refusal to fund the campaigns of candidates and groups he does not see as providing the political policies to back his own views; however, Soros has been a major financial backer of smaller political campaigns that have attempted to install members of minority groups in criminal justice positions at local and state levels. George Soros believes the U.S. criminal justice system is weighted unfairly against minority groups he believes are often given stronger sentences when compared to their white male peers.
In terms of the U.S. as a whole the work of George Soros often reflects the theories of his philosophy mentor Karl Popper who believed the U.S. was an excellent political idea, but the Constitution many see as a God given right of all citizens is often required to be fought for in respect to the civil rights of individuals. Immigration reform is one of the other main areas George Soros believes the U.S. should be seeking to work more closely with minority groups and individuals fighting for the rights of others. As a philanthropist, George Soros has been working with many groups fighting for the rights of “dreamers” and illegal immigrants many feel should be given the chance to achieve legal status in terms of U.S. immigration authorities. A good example of the work completed by George Soros and his Open Society Foundations is the funding he has provided for the Casa de Maryland group that works to aid illegal immigrants in knowing their rights in a bid to stop them is being prosecuted under restrictive U.S. rules.

The Syrian refugee crisis has been shown by George Soros to be a prime example of his belief that new rules are needed across the world to allow refugees to move between different nations without fear of reprisals in countries they pass through, according to Politico. Providing justice for all has become an integral part of the philanthropic work of George Soros as he seeks a fairer system for all to enjoy in the future. George Soros established the Open Society Foundations.
