Not content to sue an American state trying desperately to protect its citizens and its sovereignty, Obama has now included the controversial Arizona immigration law that was largely gutted (thanks to an activist judge appointed by Bill Clinton) in its first ever report to the United Nations Human Rights Council.
Of course our POTUS had the help of left wing, anti-American organizations in putting together this report.
The report – which now goes to the U.N. for review — was drawn up following a series of consultative sessions between January and April involving federal agencies and civil society organizations, including the American Civil Liberties Union, NAACP, American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee and Human Rights First.
The report’s compilation is part of the “universal periodic review” (UPR) process in which the HRC probes every U.N. member-state’s human rights record once every four years.
Here’s what was written about the Arizona immigration law:
– On immigration, the report says the U.S. seeks to build an effective and fair system of enforcement, and last year began a major overhaul of the immigration detention system. It notes ongoing court action contesting the controversial Arizona immigration law. “President Obama remains firmly committed to fixing our broken immigration system, because he recognizes that our ability to innovate, our ties to the world, and our economic prosperity depend on our capacity to welcome and assimilate immigrants.”
Of course the great Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is not taking this lying down. She demanded the White House take back the reference to the Arizona immigration law be taken out of the report to the UNHRC.
In a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Brewer says it is “downright offensive” that a state law would be included in the report, which was drafted as part of a UN review of human rights in all member nations every four years.
“The idea of our own American government submitting the duly enacted laws of a state of the United States to ‘review’ by the United Nations is internationalism run amok and unconstitutional,” Brewer wrote.
Here’s what Governor Brewer had to say on the Greta Van Susteren show.
Now while I’m on the subject of the U.N., here’s what one Arizona sherif had to say about them.
(CNSNews.com) – Sheriff Larry Dever, whose officers patrol Cochise County along the border between Arizona and Mexico, said he finds it “amazing” that the U.S. State Department would refer the recently passed immigration law in his state to the United Nations Human Rights Council for review.
“Well, it’s just amazing to me,” Dever told CNSNews.com. “Course, I have about as much regard for the U.N. as I do the vermin that hides in the rocks around my house here and reaches out and tries to bite me every now and then.”
Right on, sir!
