The audacity of the United Nations declaring that President Trump’s enforcement of our immigration laws are a “serious violation” of human rights. Mind you, they did not have a problem with Barack Obama or previous presidents enforcing the same laws.
The leftwing went into full outrage mode when Trump announced that children would be separated from their parents at the border if they crossed illegally – they were warned, it’s the law,
yet they continue to do it.
They went ballistic over an ACLU report that showed child abuse from children detained without their parents. The problem was that the report covered 2009-2014, a period when Barack Obama was President. Members of the mainstream media who exploited the story quickly deleted tweets once they found out Barack Obama was in charge. Apparently, abused kids only matter if they can be used to attack President Trump.
If the Left and the United Nations are so concerned about the welfare of the illegals who cross our border illegally they should support President Trump’s wall – that would deter them where obeying our immigration laws have not.
Now, we have the United Nations putting their two cents in.
In a statement on Tuesday, UN Human Rights spokesperson Ravina Shamdasani told the media that Trump’s zero tolerance policy at the U.S.-Mexico border — where all border crossers are prosecuted, no matter if they are crossing with minors — is “unlawful” and a “serious violation” of human rights.
“We are deeply concerned that the zero tolerance policy recently put in place along the US southern border has led to people caught entering the country irregularly being subjected to criminal prosecution and having their children—including extremely young children—taken away from them as a result,” wrote Human Rights spokeswoman Ravina Shamdasani.
The Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy is designed to prosecute all border crossers, including illegal alien parents who cross the border with their children and illegal aliens who pose with minors as family units. This policy results in border-crossing parents having their children taken into federal custody.
The Flores Settlement Agreement loophole, which the Republican-controlled Congress and Democrats have failed to close, prevents federal immigration officials from swiftly deporting accompanied and unaccompanied minors with their border-crossing parents.
UN Ambassador Nikki Haley said in a statement that the accusations of Trump’s immigration enforcement being “unlawful” is “hypocrisy.”
“While the High Commissioner’s office ignorantly attacks the United States with words, the United States leads the world with its actions, like providing more humanitarian assistance to global conflicts than any other nation,” Haley said.
“We will remain a generous country, but we are also a sovereign country, with laws that decide how best to control our borders and protect our people,” Haley continued. “Neither the United Nations nor anyone else will dictate how the United States upholds its borders.”
As Breitbart News reported, the U.S. has resettled more refugees and foreign nationals for humanitarian reasons in the last decade than the entire population of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – a city with more than 1.5 million residents.
