AZ Border Sheriff: 'I Have About As Much Regard for the U.N. as I Do the Vermin'
Cybercast News Service ^ | 8/31/2010 | Penny Starr

(CNSNews.com) – Sheriff Larry Dever, whose officers patrol Cochise County along the border between Arizona and Mexico, said he finds it “amazing” that the U.S. State Department would refer the recently passed immigration law in his state to the United Nations Human Rights Council for review.

“Well, it’s just amazing to me,” Dever told CNSNews.com. “Course, I have about as much regard for the U.N. as I do the vermin that hides in the rocks around my house here and reaches out and tries to bite me every now and then.”

The Bush administration refused to join the U.N. Human Rights Council, citing lax membership criteria that allowed countries with poor human rights records to sit on the council, including countries such as China, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Russia, Cuba, Pakistan, Tunisia and Egypt.

The Obama administration joined the council, citing its imperfections but made claims that U.S. efforts could change the organization for the better.

Now, the U.S. State Department is asking the council to review possible human rights violations that supposedly could occur under the Arizona’s new law against illegal immigration. The U.S. Justice Department (DOJ) has also filed a lawsuit challenging the Arizona law.

“Where does this end?” Dever told CNSNews.com.

“Why the Department of Justice intervened in this case to begin with was beyond comprehension,” Dever said, referring to the DOJ lawsuit, which claims that the Arizona law violated the federal government’s exclusive right to enforce federal immigration laws.

Washington D.C. is declaring war on the American people.

at least vermin serve a purpose and most are not anti-American.

A .22 is good for vermin. You probably need something heavier to poke through a blue helmet.

To vermin everywhere. Stand up and unite. Don’t let this type of insult stand.

I love it when a guy in public nails it so succinctly.

The U. N. is a parasitic organization.

The Number 1 goal should be to expel the UN from the US.

If that cannot be achieved we should go back to paying only our fair share in monthly installments.

They will not like those apples!

“...They can take their declarations and their findings and pack them all up and keep them in the United Nations because we really don’t care what they think,” Dever said.

I love it!

It’s worse than this. The U.S. Justice Department is investigating community colleges in AZ for acts of discrimination in hiring practices of illegal immigrants. Not that they are hiring illegals, but that they are doing their job in checking to make sure they are not hiring illegals. So, Obozo is using the justice department to enact revenge against AZ for the anti-illegal immigrant bill.

If the left wants to live in poverty like the majority of nations in the UN, I would certainly donate a one way plane ticket to the third world hell of their choice.

Oath of Office for the Secretary of State ..emphasis added:

"I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same, that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God."
Apparently Hillary isn't aware of this provision of her oath.

If the sheriff holds an elected position in that county, this guy is guaranteed to retain his job for a long time. As he should.

The lefties do not want to live in a 3rd world cesspool so much as rule over one.

How does a state that elects sherrifs like Arpaio, Dever, and Babeu, and a Govener like Jan Brewer also hand us the turd sandwich McCain?

I wonder if Sheriff Dever is going to get a $1 million bounty on his head to go along with his upcoming DOJ lawsuit?

I want to toss the UN out asap. Send them to Canada who has said they want them or to France. We’ve had the UN long enough. Let some other country put up with them. Useless bunch of morons IMO.

A person has to wonder why they are picking on Arizona. Could it have something to do with the drug cartel's, and smuggling that is going on?

Maybe someone in the Justice department wants to make sure the drug traffic is not slowed? The cartels have so corrupted the Mexican Government - they are bound to be trying the same thing here. Food for thought.
