Can he do this? WTF is he thinking? Is he not American?
What is he smoking?
Somehwere in Kenya a village is missing its IDIOT.
Just one more reason to GET US OUT OF THE UNITED NATIONS, and get the United Nations out of the United States. And the UN can have Obama. Maybe he will be happier there.
So Bo thinks the UN has jurisdiction over a State?
The Governor finds it “downright offensive” to include AZ and S.B. 1070 in a report to the UN Council on Human Rights. She request the removal of Paragraph 95 and if not removed she will monitor the proceedings and will fight any attempts of the U.S. Dept of State and the U.N. to interfere with the duly enacted laws of AZ in accordance with the U.S. Constitution. She also would like the State Dept to compare the immigration laws of U.S. and AZ. to the immigration laws of the Council members. She is confident the U.S. and AZ will win in any such comparison. – Her letter: http://janbrewer.com/uploads/08-27-10%20Letter%20to%20Secret...
State Department reports on U.S. human right violations - http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2010/aug/25/obama-admini...
OK, I think maybe I understand what Obama is doing now. He is laying America’s dirty laundry out for all the so-called UN Human Rights Council members to see in order for them to reciprocate and come clean with their human rights violations. I don’t really think it’s going to work and I’m pretty sure Ron Paul would not address the council in this fashion.
"Article III, Sec. 2, clause 2 says:
"In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party, the supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction. In all the other Cases before mentioned, the supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction."
In other words, the Judge in the Arizona case has absolutely no Constitutional jurisdiction over the matter upon which she ruled
"Its easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled."
This is an important point about jurisdiction. Why is AZ not screaming about it? Are all of the lawyers in bed together?
because those he is talking about are not declared immigrants. His letter referes to Immigrants of know "declaration".
(….Under Bush, the U.S. refused to participate in this utter joke. But the Obama administration decided to embrace the council…..And now, Obama has chosen not to merely join the UN Human Rights Council, but to prostrate our nation before this scurrilous body and claim that the US is a human rights abuser:…. And now Obama is subjecting our nation to review by one of the most corrupt bodies on the world stage. - http://wolfhowling.blogspot.com/2010/08/obama-prostrates-ame... )
I know what they're talking about but they're wrong.
Yeah I just googled the thread title and got some more info on this.
edit. Here's the pdf of what Obama sent to the UN
I think this is the portion that Obama sent to the U.N. relating to this poster's question:
V.2 Values and Immigration
92. That immigrants have been consistently drawn to our shores throughout our history is both a testament to and a source of the strength and appeal of our vibrant democracy. As he left office, President Reagan remarked that the United States is “still a beacon, still a magnet for all who must have freedom, for all the pilgrims from all the lost places who are hurtling through the darkness, toward home.” Over the last 50 years, the U.S. has accepted several million refugees fleeing persecution from all corners of the globe as well as many millions of immigrants seeking a better life or joining family. Today, the United States and other countries to which a significant number of people seek to emigrate face challenges in developing and enforcing immigration laws and policies that reflect economic, social, and national security realities. In addressing these issues we seek to build a system of immigration enforcement that is both effective and fair.
93. In 2009, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) began a major overhaul of the U.S. immigration detention system in an effort to improve detention center management and prioritize health, safety, and uniformity among immigration detention facilities, while ensuring security and efficiency. As part of this effort, in conjunction with ongoing consultations with non-governmental organizations and outside experts, DHS issued revised parole guidelines, effective January 2010, for arriving aliens in expedited removal found to have a credible fear of persecution or torture. The new guidelines firmly establish that it is not in the public interest to detain those arriving aliens found to have a credible fear who establish their identities, and that they pose neither a flight risk nor a danger to the community.
94. Under section 287(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, DHS may delegate authority to state and local officers to enforce federal immigration law. DHS has made improvements to the 287(g) program, including implementing a new, standardized Memorandum of Agreement with state and local partners that strengthens program oversight and provides uniform guidelines for DHS supervision of state and local agency officer operations; information reporting and tracking; complaint procedures; and implementation measures. DHS continues to evaluate the program, incorporating additional safeguards as necessary to aid in the prevention of racial profiling and civil rights violations and improve accountability for protecting human rights.
95. 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.
96. 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. The Administration will continue its efforts to work with the U.S. Congress and affected communities toward this end.
US is a republic not a democracy. The guy's the president but doesn't know this???
#2 No the US doesn't answer to the UN. That part of the report(95) sounds like sour grapes. He's looking for a shoulder to cry on because he doesnt like the AZ law.
lol. What a bunch of knuckleheads. And they call us kooks! ha!
