We Must Be Doing Something Right

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.

In a statement, they said: "States are required to respect and ensure the human rights of all persons subject to their jurisdiction, without discrimination. One of them is Jorge Bustamante of Mexico. I'm sure he's an unbiased "expert."

Human rights and the UN. This is the organization that just gave a seat to Iran on its Commission on the Status of Women, which supposedly works to promote gender equality. In Iran, women are required to be covered from head to toe in public, and may be beaten for dressing in what is considered an “immodest” manner. Earlier this month a top Iranian cleric blamed immodest women for earthquakes.

Why we continue to associate ourselves with such a ridiculous and irrelevant waste of time and money is a mystery. But, if the UN and the ACLU are up in arms, we must be doing the right thing.
