Obama, in compliance with his promise, scheduled 30 National Guard troops to be arriving in Arizona this week to help protect the border. It has been more than two weeks since, in light of the overwhelming danger, the Border Patrol was forced to retreat.
Just a few months ago, while out of the country, Hillary announced to the world that Obama was taking Arizona’s new immigration legislation (last Rasmussen poll showed 65% of AZ supporting) to court. Now she has submitted them to the U.N. Council on Human Rights.
Gov Brewer’s letter to Hillary included: “Simply put, it is downright offensive that the State Department included the State of Arizona and S.B. 1070 in a report to the United Nations Council on Human Rights, whose members include such renowned human rights ‘champions’ as Cuba and Libya. he 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. Human rights as guaranteed by the United States and Arizona Constitutions are expressly protected in S.B. 1070 and defended vigorously by my Administration.”
Obama returned from the Vineyards to the same place he left, in front of everyone’s face, every minute of everyday. There were New Orleans speeches, an NBC exclusive interview, Rose Garden today, your favorite show Tuesday evening will be preempted… it never ends. If his tree fell down in the middle of the forest who would not hear it? The only positive aspects in our country are his fallacies and now they must be improved. Iran is building nukes and Obama is condemning border states who are attempting to prevent terrorists from bringing them in.
America without the land of the free offers no opportunity. No opportunity means we are no different than the other guys in all the other places. Obama has run out of dictators to bow in front of and now moves up the ladder to bigger fish, the UN.
UPDATE: Although unable to locate a specific reference in Gov Brewer’s letter, a statement referencing federal government’s responsibilities to secure our borders has remained front and center until now. The case decision was in part decided against Arizona (on appeal) underscoring state authority to enforce the federal immigration statutes. In other words the judge ruled Arizona’s Border Patrol to concede to ICE. Bottom line, what Obama and Hillary have concluded about the State of Arizona and S.B. 1070, in a report to the United Nations Council on Human Rights, is no different than what our federal government was granted judicial authority to enforce.
