    Brewer condemns report to UN mentioning Ariz. law

    Brewer condemns report to UN mentioning Ariz. law - Yahoo! News

    PHOENIX – Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer demanded Friday that a reference to the state's controversial immigration law be removed from a State Department report to the United Nations' human rights commissioner.

    The U.S. included its legal challenge to the law on a list of ways the federal government is protecting human rights.

    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.
    Brewer smashed two targets with one stone.
    Obama administration and bitch slapped Hillary so hard it makes a serious dent in any challenge for the presidency. She doesn't stand for upholding the law and defending our borders and thinks so little of our laws she cites them as against human rights.

    SB1070 doesn't have anything to do with defending the borders.

    Re: Brewer condemns report to UN mentioning Ariz. law

    I admire the guts and fortitude of Gov. Brewer for standing up to Obama's outlandish Anti-American B.S.

    It is clear Liberals and others who oppose this law don't understand that it is designed and is a close copy of the Federal Law Obama's, and Bush's Administration and others going back 50 years refuse to reinforce.

    I say if nothing else happens reports of illegals fleeing AZ. is a great side affect to the law. The only sad thing is they are coming to California to join the million illegal already here, costing hundreds of millions of tax dollars.

    I only wish that the Arizona law had included a portion of the law thatt would have put Officials from sanctuary Cities in jail for 2 years, if they don't act within 30 days to publicly announce they will begin to enforce the Federal and State laws. This would have driven the Muslim in Chief nuts.

    I think it's great they've made a convoy for California. I hope they all end up there, flooding the state with more illegals... especially SF. Overburden the city and state to the point of breaking and creating an even bigger financial hole to crawl out of.

    Let the suckers have even more illegals to fund. At some point citizens of The Golden State will be fed up with dem policies that have bankrupted a once prosperous and business friendly state... and let the courts keep telling the electorate their votes mean nothing as they implode.

    I'm forced to agree... I don't see what the UN has to do with this, especially given that the court decision is still pending.

    It is just local American politics. The UN is a big boggy man among conservatives so it is only natural that a politician under siege will try to take focus away from herself and put it on a perceived "enemy" of the US that everyone on the US right wing can agree on.

    Listen the UN publishes this report for every member country every 4 years and anything that has an impact on human rights in any country is in the report. The US has had the ghost of Gitmo in the report, plus police abuse of prisoners and so on and so on. Same goes for the UK, Denmark, Spain and every other democratic country that is a member of the UN. Like it or not, just because we are democracy does not mean we do not abuse or attempt to abuse basic human rights on an almost daily basis.

    The UN is a waste of time, effort and money. We should withdraw from it, kick the UN out of NYC and then watch and see how long it lasts.

    It would keep on going. The United Nations is an international organization whose goals are cooperation, law, and pressing for human rights, among others. While it's understandable that you view America as so incredibly powerful and influential that all international organizations would fail if we didn't partipate, it's not correct. In addition, it's arguable that we'd more likely lose a lot of influence by doing such a thing.

    The UN gets most of it's funding from where? The GOAL of the UN was never any of the things you listed, it's grown to claim such... powers. That's the scary part, people like you don't even know what the UN is for. You just think it's this great shining example of Humanity at it's Finest. It's a cesspool
