U.N. Says Arizona Immigration Law Violates International “Standards”

Hahahahahaha!!!  Aah – Hahahahaha!!!  Aah – Hahahaha!  Aah – Hahahaha!  Ah – Haha–… uh, excuse me.  Just give me one minute.  Let me catch my breath.  Ok, I’m good. 

Six human rights “experts” over at the United Nations said Tuesday that Arizona’s new law on illegal immigration could violate what they say are international “standards” on issues such as discrimination and the terms under which a person can be detained: “A disturbing pattern of legislative activity hostile to ethnic minorities and immigrants has been established with the adoption of an immigration law that may allow for police action targeting individuals on the basis of their perceived ethnic origin,” the experts said, with a straight face. 1

Well, never mind that racial and ethnic profiling are specifically prohibited in the Arizona law.  Let’s just examine some of these international standards when it comes to illegal immigration, shall we?  Here’s a sampling: 

  • If you cross the border illegally in England, you are either immediately deported or jailed.
  • If you cross the border illegally in Germany, you are fined and required to work it off or pay it off.
  • If you cross the border illegally in China, you are deemed a spy and imprisoned indefinitely.
  • If you cross the border illegally in Cuba, you are thrown in jail as a political enemy of the state.
  • If you cross the border illegally in Venezuela, you are deemed a spy and imprisoned indefinitely.
  • If you cross the border illegally in North Korea, you are deemed a spy, imprisoned and sentenced to hard labor.
  • If you cross the border illegally in Saudi Arabia, you are jailed.
  • If you cross the border illegally in Iran, you are detained indefinitely and probably never heard from again.
  • If you cross the border illegally in Afghanistan, you are shot.
  • And if you cross the border illegally in Mexico, you have committed the equivalent of a felony punishable by two years’ imprisonment, or up to ten years’ imprisonment if you are re-entering the country illegally.  Furthermore, Mexico’s National Population Registry tracks and verifies the identity of everyone in Mexico, who must at all times either carry a citizens’ identity card, proper verification of visitor status, or be subject to arrest as an illegal alien. 2  

However, if you cross the border illegally in the United States, you get: a driver’s license, a social security card, a job or welfare or both, food stamps, subsidized rent or housing, free healthcare, free tuition, all government documents translated into your language, and you also get to proudly wave your country’s flag in protest of the very country that has given you all of the above for not giving you even more.

I must say those guys over at the U.N. sure have a great sense of humor!  But now that I think about it, maybe the U.N. is right.  Maybe Arizona and the rest of the United States should make every effort to adopt illegal immigration laws that are more in conformity with international standards.

    I’m glad someone is analyzing this issue the right way! Nice work. Living in San Diego, this is such a relevant issue and will be one of my top priorities in Congress. Keep up the good work!
