Arizona's new law on illegal immigration could violate international standards that are binding in the United States, six U.N. human rights experts said Tuesday.

The basic human rights regulations, signed by the U.S. and many other nations, relate to issues such as discrimination and the terms under which a person can be detained, the experts said......

In their statement, the six U.N. experts said: "States are required to respect and ensure the human rights of all persons subject to their jurisdiction, without discrimination......

"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....

The UN experts also said they are concerned about the enactment of a law prohibiting Arizona school programs featuring the histories and cultures of ethnic minorities because everyone has the right to learn about his own cultural and linguistic heritage.

Oh yes, we should listen to the UN on this matter. Isn't this the same organization that appoints to human rights commissions nations that regularly abuse actual human rights? Isn't this the same organization who's troops were raping and killing people in Africa as well as exchanging food for sex with children while they were there? The same organization that applauds the head of Iran as he thumbs his nose at their sanctions against his nation? Yep, that organization.

This is laughable. Enforcing the law violates human rights?

Evidently the UN hasn't read the law either or they woudn't make such stupid statements. What gets me is those who have read it and still continue to scream racial profiling.

I think there are a lot of people out there who REALLY need to take a good reading comprehension course! OR we need things written in the style of the old Dick and Jane books so they'd "get it".

Actually I think those pro-illegals who have read it are in denial anyway because getting rid of illegal aliens goes against their agenda. So they continue to lie about the law.

I have to admit I am getting a headache, beating my poor head against a brick wall, trying to explain. The misinformation and outright lies out there disgust me but some will still believe them.

Did you not hear? The radical left amnesty democratic politicians behind the AZ boycotts have ordered their leftist flunkies to cool it about the AZ boycott/protests because of the severe backlash?
