U.S. Warned To Respect Illegal Immigrantsí Rights
Judicial Watch ^ | September 30, 2010

Posted on 09/30/2010 9:39:35 AM PDT by La Lydia

Chastising a global movement to crack down on illegal immigration, the famously corrupt United Nations warns that governments worldwide must respect and protect the rights of all “migrants in an irregular situation.” Aimed largely at Arizona’s new immigration control law and the recent French expulsions of Roma migrants, the rather amusing U.N. admonition calls upon states to ensure that their laws conform with “international human rights standards and guarantees at all stages of the migration process.”

That means that local governments must protect illegal immigrants’ “fundamental rights,” including the right to be free from “arbitrary arrest or detention” as well as the right to “seek and enjoy asylum from persecution.” Illegal aliens must also have economic, social and cultural rights, which include health, adequate housing, education and favorable conditions of work,” according to the U.N.

States like Arizona that pass measures to curb illegal immigration are “driven by hostile domestic constituencies,” the U.N. asserts. Too often these states address “irregular migration solely through the lens of sovereignty, border security or law enforcement…” Deep stuff from the scandal-plagued group that’s largely sustained with American tax dollars.

Buried in the U.N.’s enlightening two-page statement is an acknowledgement that states have legitimate interests in securing their borders and exercising immigration control. However, those concerns cannot trump the obligations to respect international law which guarantees all persons—even “migrants in an irregular situation—the necessary rights to enjoy a “life of dignity and security.”

The warning provokes outrage as well as laughter considering the U.N.’s own Human Rights Council is best known for the oppressive regimes that comprise it. Among them are the world’s worst human rights violators, including Libya, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Cuba, China and Russia. These countries don’t even offer their own citizens rights or protections, much less to transitional migrants.

Will the United Nations invade any state in the United States that doesn’t adhere to its mandates to further “human rights”?

(D-Day on the Arizona border by blue-helmeted thugs?)

Just Wondering.

November can’t come quick enough. This coupled with the UN small arms treaty...enough is enough.

Time to leave and kick the whole mess out of NYC.

Their rights are back in Mexico where they left them. We’ll be happy to help reunite them.

If there’s another lens, I didn’t get it. :)

These people are not immigrants, they are illegal aliens.

Immigrants are green card holders.

Do not allow them to use the good and honorable title of “immigrant.”

OK, let’s respect their rights. They have a right to go home, other than that I don’t see any rights for people who are here illegally.

“U.S. Warned To Respect Illegal Immigrants’ Rights”

Their “rights” are the right to be escorted to the border and tossed to the other side, pronto.

Follow the example of Iran?

Must... defi ... the ... United Nations...!

Time to build toucher camps for illegal aliens just to disrespect the invading illegal aliens “rights”. After all we should respect the rights of all criminals that break into our homes.

Anyone crazy enough to ignore the clearly stated warnings and trust-pass, deserves to get themselves blown up.

Call me cruel but the UN’s arrogance brings that side out of a man.

The same way we treat anyone who jumps a fence and ignores posted sighs. They are clearly not only blind but very athletic.

Land mine the border in between 2 layers of fences, no wildlife and no human life should be between them fences.

From an organization where dictators don’t recognize that their own citizens have rights, or even legal immigrants for that matter.

as well as the right to “seek and enjoy asylum from persecution.

Asylum scammers like Obama's Aunt Zeituni will probably be a huge problem in the future, especially if we finally begin enforcing immigration law after Obama. It's all too easy to make up some "fear of persecution" reason for claiming asylum in the US and West in general.

No, no, it's protect the rights of all “migrants in an irregular situation.”

Maybe they just need some Ex Lax.

I thought illegals have no rights, just the right to be deported.

That murky, imprecise term "migrant" is becoming more and more popular, as if it still a time of just natural movement and no national borders.

We have some very inventive folk here at FR.

I’ll sign on to a catapult technique.

We need John Bolton back at the UN, right up until we close it, evict the slime, scrub the walls, and turn the building into an autonomous free trade zone.


Frowning takes 68 muscles.
Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.
I'm lazy.

… “migrants in an irregular situation.”

They are not in an "irregular situation", they are here illegally.

That means that local governments must protect illegal immigrants’ “fundamental rights,” including the right to be free from “arbitrary arrest or detention” …

Arrests and detention pursuant to their breaking the law are not arbitrary.

Illegal aliens must also have economic, social and cultural rights, which include health, adequate housing, education and favorable conditions of work,” according to the U.N.

These rights are to be properly pursued in their home countries.
