Gov. Brewer Slams Obama Administration Over Outrageous UNHRC Report On Arizona Immigration Law
This past week the Obama Administration hauled the State of Arizona in front of the UN Human Rights Council over its immigration policy. For the record, this sham council includes human rights offenders Cuba, China and Libya. The Obama administration told the United Nations Human Rights Council that America’s human rights record was less than perfect in the report they submitted to these thugs this week.
Now Governor Jan Brewer is fighting back against these outrageous charges. Brewer angrily demanded yesterday that the White House withdraw their report to the UNHRC that singled out Arizona’s law. She called the report “downright offensive”
A copy of the letter is here.
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.
