Let’s see: So the United Nations is toying with the idea of “forcing” the United States to keep all of the illegal immigrants flooding across our southern border. This will give a convenient excuse to the President to say, “Hey, there’s nothing I can do about it now.” How sweet.
As World Net Daily reports:
Representatives of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, or UNHRC, are “intensely discussing in meetings” the possibility of extending U.N. protection to the thousands of Central Americans crossing the U.S. border with Mexico illegally by defining them as “refugees” who are seeking asylum from political and domestic violence in their home nations, WND has confirmed.
Officials privy to the U.N. discussions have explained to WND it’s “a tricky situation,” because the Central American immigrants are not part of any group the U.N. has designated as victims of political or religious persecution.
A UNHCR official confirmed Monday to WND via email that a 10-nation meeting in Nicaragua of ministers of the interior from the U.S., Mexico and various Central American countries was held Thursday and Friday.
The ministers, according to preliminary reports obtained by WND, concluded the Central American illegal aliens are “refugees” deserving international protection under the auspices of the U.N. as they seek asylum in the U.S. The ministers cited the U.N.’s 30-year-old declaration on the rights of refugees.
I’ve got a great idea for Congress, in the event the United Nations plays that card: It seems they try hard to hide how much the U.S. pays the U.N. each year, but apparently the bill in 2009 (the latest–and only–figure I could lay my hands on online) was about $6.4-billion.
I think I just identified some money Congress can use to pay what’s necessary! If the U.N. wants to tell us what to do with people who “trespassed” into the country, then they can pay for it.
How much do you want to bet there isn’t a single Congressperson who has the guts to write and support this sensible legislation? The House controls the purse—don’t let Yellow John Boehner or anyone else tell us there’s nothing they can do!
