Apparently the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton's State Department consider our republican form of government a human rights deficiency.
As Carol Taber wrote, "Last week, the Obama State Department submitted a report to the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights on the supposed human rights violations taking place in the United States." Michelle Malkin does her usual great job as well blasting the report. Arizona's immigration enforcement law, S.B. 1070, is referenced in the report's ugly circumstances:
"A recent Arizona law, S.B. 1070, has generated significant attention and debate at home and around the world. The issue is being addressed in a court action that argues that the federal government has the authority to set and enforce immigration law. That action is ongoing; parts of the law are currently enjoined."
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, justifiably upset, wrote a letter calling the report "unconstitutional" and "downright offensive." Enacted lawfully by the State of Arizona, with provisions consistent with a federal statute, currently in a court challenge (opposed 2 -1 by Americans) by the Obama administration initiated before the law was implemented, and, of course, having violated no human rights, S.B. 1070 is a typical product of our American republican form of government, enacted at law and being litigated in our judicial system.
To air its displeasure with S.B. 1070 by referencing it in a human rights violation report to the U.N. clearly gives our foreign detractors and enemies comfort. This is a not-so-subtle attack on our republican form of government, the majority of Americans who support the law, and the majority of Americans who oppose the Obama administration's litigation against it.
It is treasonous, albeit, not an act of treason.
