Barack Obama sells out to the UN by giving the United Nations jurisdiction to go after the State of Arizona and the 22 other
states that are attempting to enforce the immigration laws that he refuses to enforce.
Unfortunately, you read that right. On August 20, the United States, for the first time ever, submitted a
29 page “Universal Periodic Review” (UPR) to the UN Human Rights Council which outlines a laundry list of
alleged human rights abuses supposedly committed by the United States.
Of course, the UPR is pure rubbish, but it’s also much more than an opportunity for Barack Hussein Obama,
the Apologist-In-Chief, to bad-mouth America to the rest of the world. Contained within that laundry list
of so-called abuses is a direct condemnation of S.B. 1070, legislation enacted by the State of Arizona
(and supported by two-thirds of the American people), which seeks to do the job that the federal government
has refused to do… secure the border.
According to the UPR: “A recent Arizona law, S.B. 1070, has generated significant attention and debate at
home and around the world. The issue is being addressed in a court action that argues that the federal
government has the authority to set and enforce immigration law. That action is ongoing; parts of the law
are currently enjoined.”
The submission of this UPR is the first step in a United Nations review process which will culminate with
the issuance of a plan of action, approximately 90 days from now, from a panel of UN bureaucrats from
France, Japan, and Cameroon.
And yes… the United States would be expected to “voluntarily” comply with the UN panel’s recommendations,
but as the UN Human Rights Council states on its website: “The Human Rights Council will decide on the
measures it would need to take in case of persistent non-cooperation by a State….”
In short, Barack Obama has upped the ante. Not content with simply filing a frivolous federal suit against
the people of Arizona, Obama has transformed his amnesty feud with the American people into an international
human rights cause and effectively placed the people of Arizona (and the 22 other states that are
considering similar border security legislation) under the jurisdiction of a triumvirate of America-hating
United Nations bureaucrats.
Let your Congressman know how you feel about this sell out to the U.N.
